    And therein lies the rub... or lack thereof.
    If there's community spread (and at least one case is suspected of being such), social isolation will be key.

    I’ve been researching Poverty In America and came across this quote by Laurel A. Rockefeller. I think she speaks to all of us.

    “Just think how much better your life could be if you and everyone around you learned what our parents, grandparents, and great grand-parents from the Greatest Generation learned: we are all connected, every life is valuable, every life (human, plant, and animal) is precious, every viewpoint is valid. When we transcend our petty momentary desires, we find ourselves and our world enriched. Empathy evolved among humans because it fosters life. We need each other and we need communities. Let us all endeavour think before we speak, look at life through the view-points of others, and care about those around us.”

    Hey Tom, thanks for the quote. I was also thinking about our ancestors lately. Namely, I was thinking how much better people are going to be eating during the quarantine. When I went shopping today, i noticed a lot of canned vegetables were missing from the shelves and I thought "well, good for my adipose American brothers and sisters. They'll be eating more at home and grazing less at McDonald's. They'll be eating a lot more like our ancestors and that's good." My motto has always been it my great-grandma didn't know about this food, I shouldn't put it in my mouth.

    These aren't your nan's cans. With all the sodium and additives for canned, flash frozen is by far a healthier alternative assuming one has the means to keep things frozen solid. by the looks of it, people will definitely be doing more home cooking, which on balance should be better for a number of reasons... including staying in and not becoming a vector.

    Nutrition is on a sliding continuum. For you and I canned vegetables would be a step in the wrong direction. For members of the Fast Food Nation it would be a step in the right direction.

    I’m not certain that that view ever was commonly held but it is a view that I hold and I wish that more people did too. Thank you for drawing this book to my attention. It seems to me that folk mostly cling to their own dogmatism and believe that the only allowable and valid view is theirs.

    I never did learn to use one of those, but my feet stay pretty clean. Outhouses! That’s the answer! But, heck, we don’t have Sears & Roebuck Catalogs any more either!

    Modern times indeed!

    My friends,
    As a retired health care employee, there's nothing hoaxie or fake about this. If you're offended by the flurry of media attention, pick up a book and educate yourself about what is a pandemic and how populations are affected.

    We are SO fortunate to have all of the professional news media (not OPINION mongers like Fox, etc.) researching and reporting along with real experts.

    There NEEDS to be up to date information available so that we can make decisions based on the most accurate information available at the time. I don't consider the Rose Garden "praise-the-leader" session in any way informative. Put on the real scientists, medical officials, and people who have to deal with everything on an minute to minute basis. To that orange stained narcacist... shut up.
