I don’t blame you. They are frequently some good conversations,

But inevitably they break down when the trolls show up.
I have been relatively pleased with how Virginia has done, and especially pleased with how lightly Charlottesville has been hit, and really really pleased by how relatively lightly UVA hospital has been hit since my partner works there. But since several close family members caught the virus early on and one had a really tough time I’ve been pretty maniacally following this. Things are getting scary and there’s no reason to believe they won’t get scarier. While it’s true much of the recent spike has been in younger age groups, they transmit the disease to you and I just as readily as old farts like us would. And they’re out there mingling. Most of the United States is seeing a rapid increase, and our second and third largest cities are among the worst. Heat is not slowing this down. Hospitalization rates are spiking, and likely death rates well as well. And people are refusing to wear masks and social distance. I see it every day when I walk to the Lawn and back.
