    it's never going to be the same
    at least in my lifetime
    so much suffering
    so many brave people
    I cry myself to sleep at night
    I wish I was an optimist

    It’ll be fine Lemon. Live your best life. This is inevitably going to require tangling with adversity from time to time. This is one of those times. One consolation, you’re not alone. We’re all fighting the same battle.

    Perhaps. None of us get out alive though. Do your best with whatever time you have. Small kindnesses. Small happinesses. Careful attention to detail in protecting yourself. That’s the path forward in these uncertain times.

    Also, I find telling Sonhouse and Very Rusty that they are dumb as $£@% immensely rewarding. You should try it.

    There is merit in that comment. I don't have drug dealers & addicts on my doorstep anymore...

    As painful as it will be this virus will draw out the poison of a failed political system like a poultice on an oozing sore.

    This is an interesting read in that vein.

    In the US we have had 40 thousand deaths.

    Each week in the US we have 50 thousand deaths, each year many people die of the flu. We had 80 thousand flu deaths a year or two ago.

    It is a wonder why this thing is being hyped as it is. It is not good for some people's mental health.

    If you are around 80 I do not think you should fear death.
