The States are a Union, we hang together or we hang separately.

That said, there need to be consequences for allowing public defecation.

No new cases in Lane County since April the 17th.

TESTING STATUS IN LANE COUNTY*

At least 3,082 tests conducted for Lane County residents (including private labs)
This number is likely below the actual number of tests conducted. Private labs are processing tests from Lane County residents and there is variability in reporting of negative results. Lane County Public Health is being notified of any positive test results.

50 positive test results for Lane County (44 in Eugene-Springfield; 6 outside Eugene-Springfield)

2 deaths in Lane County due to suspected Coronavirus infection

If it's above 37.8 C access is denied and people are reported to authorities as a suspected case for the Chinese virus.
So rub the hand sanitizer on your face before they scan your temperature. Too easy.

It's been cool enough this week in new mexico that my drive to work and walk across the parking lot I'm cold enough to not register on the forehead thermometer.
I drive an old leaf so work isn't that far.

I made this chart today and shared it here:

It would be easier to retire in New Mexico than Arizona?

I think that one of my crowns is loose. Isn't that fun?

I'm in the Southern Hemisphere, so here it's Autumn. Some days are still quite warm until the sun goes down, but it's still not too cold.

So, how do we discuss a worldwide crisis without involving the politics that may make or break lives, livelihoods, and economies?

Praising and criticizing politicians is right out.

Can we debate policies and procedures?

If any of you took offense at anything I wrote "I apologize."

I've been sweating down my t-shirt yesterday. 52 North in April. It wasn't that hot really, but low wind and a clear sky can still made it unpleasantly hot locally.
Today it rains, finally. A bit. Maybe I won't have to sprinkle the grass this evening for a change.

Skies were hard blue again the last few days. They weren't 3 days ago when the wind was south-east. The heavy industry in the Ruhrgebiet has not been completely shut down, apparently.

Sure we can, the only issue is trying to avoid name-calling the ones who enforce pointless policies

This is relevant and seems well reasoned.
