I got little or no response today.  Last night after hours of effort I got a single reporter to pay attention. When I was young news stories were found often from tip lines to a newsroom, now they seem uninterested in actual stories, but are keen on lots of opinions on stories. Media, Politicians, and much of the status quo lumbers on, oblivious to the death of real news, to its replacement with opinions, and to the general disinterest of what was once journalism.

Tried the CDC again, and they say, again, they will call back.

Well, that was finally satisfying, at least in part.  I managed to get ahold of my local Rep, Meghan Gardner, running for State Congress and explained to her the uptick and my hope that its adding antibody and molecular testing, or a typo, or a web page error (but todays update shows it is not an error), everything else seems pretty nefarious. Nice woman on the phone.

Today as I watched the hearing on Barr, I watched as both sides again did the same thing, pitch blame, accuse the other, and no thought of seeking justice or truth was evident.  Rather we have the Dems idea of justice VS the GOP Ideas of justice, and the rule of law becomes a plaything to be interpreted as any party sees fit to.

Well the CDC called back and it is some weird HTML error on their page which works with edge but not with Chrome. So, that is a damn relief. The reason the number is kicked up is an inclusion of antibody testing, which is poor in accuracy, and not used as a determinate for overall infection; until we get better tests.

I hate to even think this, but I see it as a reality at this juncture.  I think perhaps the best thing that could happen to America is for our own POTUS or members of his family actually catch the bug and get ill, then he might take it seriously.  He is in denial, believing he cannot get it, the wealthy cannot get it, the young cannot get it, and none of that is reality at all. He might deny that if asked, but actions speak louder than words.
