If anyone has "cut the cord" on cable and wondering what free streaming services there are out there, I thought I'd start a list.

USTVGO has basic cable channels plus HBO, Showtime and Starz streaming live Eastern Time. Free.

Pluto TV is live streaming TV with hundreds of channels, many devoted to just one TV show so you can binge watch 24 hours a day. Also movie channels and some original programming. Free.

Q about the stock market.

I think they think we're doing a good job and think the administration doing great job keeping people informed because there was a great fear. You have 100s of thousands of people who already had it and recovered.

Roger Kimball: What a Year! The Coronavirus Crisis in Retrospect

The crisis led to a new appreciation of contingency—an appreciation of the fact that our world is beset not only by the fragility of normality but also the normality of fragility.

Good article.

Tocqueville’s Lessons in a Time of Pandemic

As the crisis continues, and in the aftermath, the activity of the citizens that Alexis de Tocqueville described so well in his book must always include assessing how well their local and state governments have prepared for ordinary and extraordinary events.

@umad80 That movie was funny. Also, she was hilarious in 'Horrible Bosses'.
p.s. I was very impressed at how Jennifer showed so much class after her divorce from Brad. He left her for, as it turned out, a screeching harpy with a Chinese restaurant menu tattooed on her back.

@Baline Isn't it gross? And what pisses me off is poor Jennifer Aniston said she didn't have a hard time staying home. As in, she's got a big house and it's not as hard for her. She didn't mean it selfishly and the mob attacked her.

Kristie Alley though really laid into Paltrow. I love Kristie. She's becoming a national treasure. 😁

(psst, Rebecca was a way better character than Diane.)

I just saw an ad for with Jennifer Garner saying 30 mil. children rely on school for food. Then some other woman says with schools shut down, these children are extra vulnerable. So we had an idea, We're going to read you books. WTF? Finally it ends with info/links to donate to this,..joint effort, I guess. It just struck me as so odd that they never said, we are trying to raise $ for food. The ad went from kids missing school meals, so we will tell them stories. *Is it just me?

People at home are watching, and seeing how low quality the reporters' questions are. It's like they're counterfeit questions made in China or something.

Right now, TN's cumulative total of confirmed cases is 3067, of which the TN Department of Health says 248 have recovered and 37 have died, leaving 2,782 active cases in the state. With the model predicting 3,379 hospital beds needed _today,_ the number of hospital beds is overestimated by at least 21%, and probably much more, since only 8.7% of all confirmed cases in TN were ever hospitalized. Assuming that 8.7% of the currently active cases are hospitalized, that would be about 242 people.
