Out of the Blue

The PoolTracker site that we use for our annual NFL playoff pool offers the ability to create an NFL draft pool, so I decided some of us might find this a fun challenge. Here's a link to the Blue's News 2020 NFL Draft Pool (password is "draft"). Simply pick who you think will be the top 10 players drafted in order in the first round of Thursday's NFL draft. You'll get 10 points for each pick you hit on the head and partial points for each pick that finishes in the Top 10 (10 points minus the difference between your pick and their actual draft order). The tie-breaker is to predict the number of trades in the first round. It costs nothing to join, and there is no prize, so all that's at stake is bragging rights. But as has been pointed out before, it's hard to place a value on those... they are basically priceless.

Tx Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick (R) called for the reopening of his state and the country late Monday, saying there are "more important things than living."
Wow. Pretty amazing he could actually get those words out of his mouth. I think my response would be, "Show us how it done, kill yourself." And of course, then calling out, "Okay, who wants to follow him?"
Remember, Dan previously said he thought "lots of grandparents" across the country would risk their survival to keep the country afloat economically.
A prerequisite for appearing on and watching Fox is to lobotomize yourself.
While Foxes company policy was promoting social distancing internally and had stopped company travel they were still making fun of Covid 19 because that was what they were paid to do.
John Oliver outdid himself this week, it's infuriating to watch.

what the soulless republicans don't get is that, as john oliver put it so well, opening early isn't trading one bad outcome for another, it's trading one bad outcome... FOR BOTH BAD OUTCOMES.

i.e., it isn't trading the pandemic for economic growth, or sacrificing economic growth for pandemic control - if we open up too early, it'll cause a second outbreak and a fresh (and possibly bigger) pile of bodies, and that will also crash the economy. possibly worse than now since many people's savings will have dried up by then resulting in a real recession.
