Is it wrong? The state of Florida had a record day for the number of new virus cases. The state that was slow to shut down and quick to open has seen a massive surge beyond just yesterday's numbers. Texas, Arkansas and Arizona also appear to have their hands full. And yet the President is holding a rally this weekend. He plans to fill an indoor stadium and while masks are available, they will not be required. I hope they don't wear masks. I hope the virus spreads. I hope people will overwhelm the hospitals. Isn't that horrible that I could want all those things? Yes. But look at the US as compared to the rest of the world. We have failed to squash this thing and we now know that that is likely because we are reluctant to wear masks. That's got to end. I just don't see that ending until people die because they don't wear a mask. Americans aren't all that smart but they understand death and pain. Sometimes in life a few need to make a sacrifice for the many. Tulsa, OK will be tested this weekend.
Day 99. NY Gov Andrew Cuomo ended his daily press conferences after 100+ days. That feels like an appropriate milestone for me as well. That said, I still find that I have lots to say. Like how about someone make a mask that displays what you say in writing. It would be great for our deaf friends who can no longer read lips. While you are at it record and transcribe everything I say every day and post it here on this blog. Oh my god how boring!
Fridge. You know things are getting better when you see an empty fridge and feel no sense of panic.
Happy Wife. She has a hair appointment. I feel like someone just took a foot off MY neck.
Street Walking. We all need more space. Let's start making more room for people even if that means less room for cars. Make it OK to walk down the middle of the street as a pedestrian.
Are you worth your space? I've heard about the concept of worth your weight in gold, but are you worth your space. A six foot distance equates to a 113 square feet of space per human. San Carlos retail space goes for $42 per square foot per year. The space one human takes up costs $4,746. Let's say that the average retail day has 11 hours, then means the break even on every person is a $1.18 per hour assuming that all space is human space. Even at the double the price I feel like I can afford to buy my space and yes, I'm worth $2.50 an hour to have my bubble.
