Hello Quod Fam!
I had to have my 14 y/o rescue put
to sleep on March 13. I have been
heartbroken, missing him, and not
able to find another shelter pet....
until last Saturday! May I introduce
Rusti, an almost one year old
chi weenie weighing in at 8#!
She was at a rescue in Clear Lake,
IA as shelters around Des Moines
are still closed. It was love at first
sight, and she truly is as sweet as
she looks! Thank you for giving
me this forum to share with you
my happiness! ❤️ 🐾 🇺🇸

Bartender asks the rabbit, "what are you having?"
Rabbit says, "I don't know, I'm only here because of auto correct"
Say it isn't so: Hollywood will be re-making one of my favorite movies-"The Princess Bride." Nonononononooooooooo.😱 😱 😱
This man is standing up for the Lincoln statue behind him. Love it.

If you want to understand what's going on with #COVID19 right now, the best place to look is Florida, because they do the best job of anyone in terms of data transparency.
Note the different age distributions of cases, hospitalizations, & deaths in their regular report.
The full report is here: https://floridadisaster.org/globalassets/covid19/dailies/state_reports_20200625.pdf. The point is that not all hospitalizations are the same.
If you're 85 and you've been hospitalized with #COVID19,
the risk of death is 61%.
If you're 35-44, (and you've been hospitalized) the risk is 5%.
If you're 25-34, (and you've been hospitalized the risk is) 2%.
For those who like to see this data visualized,
here's a chart of the mortality rate of hospitalized #COVID19 patients by age bracket (in honor of UF grad
the bars are in retro Gator blue).
Not all COVID hospitalizations are created equal.
Here's a similar chart, but this time of the death rate for #COVID19 *cases* in FL.
Age trend is even more pronounced, b/c the death rate for COVID *cases* for people under 55 is well below 1%.
So when people talk about rising cases, 1st q to ask is: what's the age distribution?

Finally, here's the age distribution of the *hospitalization* rate of Florida #COVID19 cases.
Here again, you see that the frequency of hospitalization is much higher for the elderly.
“No longer will religion be in its own uniquely constricted category,” he said, adding: “The outdoor gatherings are now without numeral limitation, given the George Floyd protests, the Juneteenth celebrations and the Black Lives Matter demonstrations, all of which have been approved by Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio, and the only limitation that remains is that of social distancing.”
Most Americans have lost all ability to conjugate verbs. "I seen him." Argh. Let's try, "I had seen him." "I saw him." But remember, I went through all of my elementary and high school education before the Department of Education had been established. We diagrammed sentences. We memorized multiplication tables. Well, you get the picture. We were taught, not indoctrinated.

Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
