  1. 23,405 cases and 383 deaths Friday. that is 1.6 percent deaths based on the positive cases. Clearly supports the need to continue all we can reasonably to prevent the spread but does not justify closing down everything. People are stressed out because of the response to the virus as much as the virus itself. Depression leading to substance abuse and related deaths are just starting to be evaluated. People being evicted and unable to buy food is just another unintended consequence of the response to the pandemic. We need to do everything we can to prevent the cure from being worse than the disease.

    • Amen to that! The virus can be fatal so using caution whenever possible is pruden, but destroying industries and those that work in them is an over-reaction. I wonder what happens if we follow the money through this process? I still feel there are other forces in play here.
