This has been a supremely frustrating day for me since I am traveling and must attend to professional business having nothing to do with the current outbreak. I is incredibly maddening to be away from fast moving events. I’ll return home Friday night. In the meantime I will do what I can late in the day and early in the morning, and if I can’t sleep, in the middle of the night. Since there are plenty of other places paying attention you’ll still be getting the latest news and I am hoping the enforced distancing may allow me to give a more detached view. That aside, I have a favor to ask of all of you.
Over the years we have accrued a loyal and knowledgeable readership and in the last week have acquired many more. I am always impressed by the amount of raw brain power out there (as well as the amount of raw nuttiness, of course), and since there is no way I can even read all the comments now, much less answer all the questions, I am hoping you will all help each other. When you are pretty sure you know the answer to a question, jump in and give it. Preface it with the name of the questioner so they can find it easily. Be responsible. Don’t guess, don’t grind your favorite axe, try not to flame. Be genuinely helpful and constructive.
We’re all in this together.
