I was wrong, there was not a bloom, instead we have blooms, multiple.  Many states have them already, in certain cities, counties and rural areas.  Like popcorn popping here or there in a pan, bloom, bloom, bloom.  Alabama’s hospitals are over taxed, no ICU beds left in Montgomery.  Same situation is repeating all over the Red States now, because they had not yet bloomed, and they believed, in large part, the POTUS and his false rhetoric.  I do not believe Trump can believe any negative evidence, he sees anything negative on his watch as a criticism of him personally, and then attacks the source as a political adversary.  Now science itself is his enemy and many of his followers as well.

Boy am I sick of this BS.  The damn headlines, the numbers, all of it.  Writing is never a chore for me, it’s just talking with my fingers.  The work lies in editing, structure, planning on a writing project, not the actual writing itself.  So this particular writing project, lacking all editing, structure and planning, is simply an exercise in free writing. It’s not ‘work’ per se; all SOT, about a pandemic, for historical purposes. None of the actual writing work, so it ought not to feel like work, but it is work because of the content.

All this so maybe we can look back after and study, maybe learn or save a life or two via learning from our errors. I am so sick of tracking this and watching it bloom, watching my fellow Americans disregard science and go party. I am sick and tired of it all and we have just begun, thisd is going to lasty for years, perhaps forever like AIDS, no vaccine yet there is there?

I keep seeing the film ‘Idiotcracy’ in my head.  This memorial day thousands of Americans went out and partied like it was 1999, all over, in many states recreational areas.  Any of those could well be a super spreader event.  All it takes is one asymptomatic person in that environ and you have dozens infected and unwitting, who then travel back home, perhaps interstate, with the bug.  I think come the Summer Solstice we are going to see very bad results from Memorial Day.

As a result of all this I no longer see a need to track the Canaries, we have blooms already and state numbers may not reflect what is happening in any particular city, township or county.  I will continue the dailies nationwide and globally.
