Also, let’s be clear. The President has pitted the 50 states against each other competing for supplies rather than using his power to order, authorize and pay for national production. Maine is doing its best, but competing against 49 other states isn’t how it’s supposed to be

Check out WXPN’s “worst song in the world” episodes, pretty funny.

I was of the mind that Bernie was irrelevant. That wher he dropped or not didn’t matter. The race was over and covered as over. But it’s clear that his not dropping out will fuel the toxicity that he inspires. Bernie needs to drop out now.

The last thing you want to happen in a crisis situation is for police to be given all sorts of new powers and then to 'get creative' about how they use them

Our leaders — at every institutional level, from every ideological faction — are not meeting this moment.

Turn up the volume and listen to the sound of a city in the grips of . Every siren wailing is carrying more lives to an already overcrowded hospital. And every siren signifies an EMT crew risking their lives to save others.

It makes one think, maybe the best defense spending this country could do is for a stronger safety net? At least, until the day we figure out how to shrink soldiers down to a microscopic level to fight infectious diseases hand to spore.

Trump looked genuinely shook a few weeks ago when it seemed he first realized what he had done by ignoring the pandemic plan. But the disturbing turn, as the deaths mount, is he seems to be actually enjoying it now, hogging the spotlight, high on his own lies.

the response of leadership in many red states to the worsening of the pandemic in some blue states mirrors the response of the US to the disaster in Italy and the response of Europe to the disaster in China, and on and on. it's a fractal of inaction and stupidity

The response to the 1918 pandemic varied enormously by city and has been carefully studied. Those cities that closed things down early (e.g. St. Louis) saw MANY fewer deaths than those that lagged (e.g. Philadelphia) and their economies recovered more quickly as well.

Let's cross the street to avoid each other, but with a smile and wave. More reassuring than shuffling by, looking down, scared. Social distancing is the weirdest group activity ever, but we are doing it together.

Some have a tendency to claim that lack of absolute certainty in the correctness of the current best-guess explanation means that *all* possible explanations are equally valid and they can advocate some definitely-wrong explanation as being of equal standing and due equal respect

iv. In all the years of studying infectious disease and planning for this day, I never dreamed that when it came I'd be opposed by my own federal government, a non-trivial fraction of my fellow citizens, and as yet undetermined fraction of hostile foreign actors.

12. But we are also fighting on a second front that we did not anticipate, fighting a battle against misinformation and disinformation in a hyper-partisan environment where our predictions and recommendations about the pandemic response are deeply politicized.

1. This is going to be a personal thread about the experience of working at the intersection of infectious disease modeling and the study of misinformation during the worst pandemic in a century. If you're just interested in what is happening with the virus, you can skip it.
