Don’t know whether to trust the numbers even as much as I was with  a new news story that some GOP Governors might be fudging the numbers to shore up election hopes.  Anyway, it is a holiday and I expect some under reporting due to that, like Sundays.

WOW, that’s all folks; when I do not include the majority but screen for only C-19 cases anyway.  There was no need to screen for those stories at all a month or so back, that was all there was in the news. Maybe this won’t eat up so many hours now.

Meanwhile the Trump admin is firing IG’s, you know that pesky oversight we all demanded to have both after Nixon and in 2018?  If you can fire the guys investigating you and replace them with loyalists, you twist law into a political tool and turn the US into a banana republic.

Maine infected                                 2,013                     2,074

Whilst I isolated and worked on this, 2 more of my fellow Mainers died from C-19.
