    We anticipated a peak in early to mid summer. That was a generalization. The disease course is proving to be somewhat predictable. It should peak in the Redoubt later, or nearly last, and long after the big cities on the coast. North Dakota and Alaska might be the the best places to avoid the virus. Campers fleeing the cities will arrive in the Redoubt in greater numbers as time goes on, so we may have a longer in duration, or double peak, yet a much lower peak. Latter arrivals may have a greater infection rate. Winter will force most campers south.

    The priests in Italy who died caring for the ill weren´t good Christian Folks? The medical personal who is infected and dying deserve dead?

    The University of Utah is expecting their peak a bit after mid May. The political choices are - keep things locked down, and slow burn till October - November. Praying second infections is not a real thing. Economy takes a even more massive hit and people get unbelievably stressed out. "Essential" workers will eventually demand more pay to continue to support those who are "working from home". The balance of people doing something to those pushing paper will become more obvious and wage changes may come into play. Hazard pay of sorts. Or.... open up to some extent and things rip... hospitals get overwhelmed, and it's rather scary for people. This forces some people to choose to self-isolate. In this case we may lose too many "essential" workers. Risks to infrastructure become real in this scenario. No easy way out of this - unless we discover that one of the many therapies (not vaccines) are actually very effective. That would change the dynamic quite a bit in the near term. If not, we are in this for the very very long run. Jim, enjoyed your ballistic wampum market forecast, thank you. God bless and pray every day.

    My state(VT) has "asked" people to please not come here unless they are an essential worker(nurse, doc etc) coming here to work. People have been "asked" to stay away if they're just coming for pleasure or to escape the virus in NYC, NJ etc. Hotels, motels, inns and AirBnB's have been told they need to close down and can only provide housing to essential workers or the homeless that are placed there. So how's this working out? Evidently a little official visit was made to just 88 of these establishments(hotels, motels etc- not AirBnB) and half of them were in violation! Looking online at AirBnB's, I saw only one that said "essential workers only". The others were happy to rent to you no matter where you came from. But our governor doesn't feel it's ok to be inhospitable and tell people to stay away. On a good day we lack adequate numbers of hospital staff. And it's likely that additional staff and supplies will go to the big cities; not us. I dunno. It's not that I didn't know that living in the northeast, even all the way up here in the far north had its risks. But looking at that huge red bullseye on the maps of infections now that covers NY, NJ, MA,CT; gaaaah. Gonna have to go visit the Redoubt! ;-) (only kidding)

    It was not in prepared.. notice how true keeps talking bio weapon and several have pointed out sterility from this plus politics. .... Notice how the coastal areas are hardest hit. This is a weapon made to kill liberals and Democrats and keep them from making more liberal Democrats. I mean this is spread via close contact and fecal matter. ... Not gonna say which group has highest infidelity rates and fecal contact but it sure ain't good Christian folk.

    I believe the data out of South Korea and my state indicates herd immunity will be reached much faster than advertised and may already be well on it’s way to establishment. I believe an order of magnitude more people than advertised have already had this, been exposed to this and recovered. If we put up case and death counters for seasonal flu, which is also “novel” and lethal to some extent nearly every year, we would not function. I think the Chinese leadership is laughing at us right now or at least very happy with how we are self destructing our economy. Either celebrating their good fortune or satisfied with a plan well executed.

    "In my eyes all politicians are simply the same crook in a different suit." You are totally correct, Lee. The two parties exist only to keep We the Sheeple distracted banging heads with each other while party leaders are in Washington behind closed doors schmoozing with each other, smoking cigars and downing brandies. I refuse to vote because it only legitimizes an illegitimate system and fools people into thinking they make a difference and are part of the system. BS. We are way beyond that. If we are voting for the lesser of two evils all the time, we are still voting for evil. People seem to miss that rather salient point. I vote every single election, but only for my state and local referendums, never for people. "If you don't vote, you don't get to gripe." That's pure propaganda. The opposite is true. When your team loses, you don't get to gripe because everyone played by the rules. When you vote, you don't get to gripe because everyone played by the rules. I don't recognize the state's right to rule over me, so I don't help elect the people who carry that out. That gives me the right to gripe. When you help elect lawmakers (laws are the ONLY way we lose our freedoms, contrary to what the military industrial complex would have us believe) then in my view, you lose your right to gripe when they pass laws you don't like.

It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle which if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world.
