Since yestermorn another 6,590 of my fellow humans have died from C-19, of those 2,344 were my fellow Americans.
Moving on up to 9-11 days again . . . these numbers are seriously ticking up.
Let’s check those canaries . . .

So everyone up, some significantly up. Here is the thing about the canaries in the coal mine, the flock of canaries also flew out of the cage and into the mine, so if one gets infected, so too do they all.
So here is the issue I am facing, I am burning out on this BS. I still feel it needs to be documented as so much vanishes into unknown digital vaults mere hours after posting; that I think it warrants a record of it for future historians to ponder.
However it is god dammed exhausting, tracking down all the headlines and endlessly reading doom and gloom, it wears me down. So I have decided that Saturday will be my day off, I need the damn downtime. Saturdays and Sundays are also the slowest news days.
Figure that out sometime, on the days when the most people could watch the news they broadcast the least, curious no?
So from now on Saturday’s post will just be the numbers, and anything I care to add. Sunday I will return to the headlines because the sites are so much slower on weekends the headlines don’t vanish in a 24 hour cycle, making this the only good time to have time off, and I need some time outside of this project.
Maine infected 1648 1648
Increase Infected 83 0
Maine Dead 70 70
Increase Dead 1 0
So while I took a day off, the virus did no such thing. In today’s numbers it looks like Maine took a day off too.
