  1. The system having the tools to fight a pandemic is worlds different than those tools being utilized by leadership. The index speaks to the former, not the latter. "The media" (see also: the president's own words) speak to the latter. It's not the media's fault it took the president a week to go from blabbering about the Defense Production Act to actually using it. It's not the media's fault that the president takes to Twitter to yell about GM using a plant it doesn't even own anymore. It's not the media's fault the president said "Completely contained. 15 cases soon down to zero" a month ago. The media doesn't make the president spew "some say" flowed by lines of untrue drivel that no experts agree with because it came from the bowels of QAnon. The president didn't take COVID-19 even a little seriously until the stock market started tanking, and even now his level of seriousness is highly questionable as he's waging his grievance war publicly against governors who need federal help to save lives, and that's not the media's fault either. But keep going to "the media" boogeyman. 🙄🙄🙄🙄 I'm sure you'll just dismiss this for various reasons, but I live in a state with a governor I disagree with on 90%+ of policy issues, but Mike DeWine is doing a fantastic job with the pandemic. Why? Because he took it seriously early and has been taking action based on recommendations of public health experts. In happier news, this could be huge: https://amp.cnn.com/cnn/2020/03/27/us/15-minute-coronavirus-test/index.html?__twitter_impression=true
  2. Okay Don. You don't help the economy by opening up shop, you help the economy by effectively fighting the virus. These things are not independent of one another, and pretending there is some alternate universe in which things aren't shut down, the virus is running unchecked, and the economy is humming along as if everything is normal is a universe that doesn't exist.
  3. I'm on day 7 of working from home and I want to gouge my eyes out.
  4. Correct. Maybe there is something flawed in their hiring process and McBeane was just pure luck, but the evidence seems to suggest a good GM is a good GM regardless of what these owners do. Hard to argue.
  5. I don't expect my local bar is a couple years away from asking for hundreds of millions of public dollars for a stadium. It's not the same.
  6. So did Austin Ekeler, yet he managed to produce just fine.
  7. If we pay a bunch of money to a RB, I swear....
  8. I was with you last year at this time, but given how the season played out, I think McBeane gets another kick at the QB can if Allen doesn't take the next step unless the team completely implodes this season.
  9. The Falcons stink, and will probably continue to do so until there is a regime change. The Saints are very, very good.
  10. Tampa makes by far the most sense for Brady if he's looking to get paid and put up monster numbers. Doesn't hurt that there's only one other NFL team in the division.
  11. I'd have liked to keep the 4th, but whatever. The 5th and 6th didn't have a great chance to make this roster, and we weren't getting a better player in the 1st. Compared to the Hopkins deal, yes. But Bill O'Brien as a baseline probably isn't fair, and #1 WRs rarely get moved in their prime. Prices being equal I'd have preferred Hopkins, but I assume we didn't have a piece of Johnson's value (in O'Brien's eyes) to do it. Mostly I'm happy to see the team finally prioritize offense. And it also has the happy consequence of removing excuses for Allen.
  12. If Stefon Diggs played for the Panthers, we probably would have traded three 1sts for him by now.
  13. "You're in your poor situation only because of your choices" is the holy grail of gratuitous partisan potshots. You just don't perceive it that way because of your own leanings.
  14. "I don't agree with your life choices without knowing a single thing about your life, therefore you deserve to face financial hardship" is pretty inhumane. But you do you.
