    41,576 new cases, about 4k more than last Monday. I wasn't expecting that.

    Texas: 3,819 new cases; 59 deaths
    California: 3,123 new cases; 31 deaths
    Tennessee: 2,489 new cases; 20 deaths
    North Carolina: 2,258 new cases; 3 deaths
    Illinois: 1,853 new cases; 14 deaths
    Wisconsin: 1,696 new cases; 4 deaths
    Michigan: 1,455 new cases; 15 deaths
    Fuck Florida.
    Kansas: 1,270 new cases; 8 deaths
    New York: 1,154 new cases; 18 deaths
    Utah: 1,105 new cases; 4 deaths
    Ohio: 1,071 new cases; 6 deaths

    First of all fuck all of you for not at least giving me a courtesy laugh for my joke a couple pages back. You bastards. Anyway, this is the highest Tennessee has been since the end of July, North Carolina's beginning to hit their highs from that period as well, the Midwest keeps Midwesting and it seems New York is pretty much going to be a permanent fixture on the list again now. The second wave has begun in Europe and it's looking like it's sweeping along the US as well--though admittedly it's hard to tell in some spots because the US is still largely dealing with the first wave thanks to shitty leadership. A 4k jump on an underreport day isn't fantastic news. Last week we had an 8k jump on Tuesday so ideally I'd like to see it remain largely unchanged. If it jumps up again tomorrow compared to last Tuesday then we'll be heading back into 50k territory regularly.

    Deaths were also higher than I anticipated, 423, meaning we hit 215k a day sooner than I expected. The total stands at 215,032. I'm still optimistic that we'll avoid hitting 1k daily totals this week but depending on how the next few days go in terms of cases the upward turn in deaths might also be happening sooner than I expected.

    Related news:

    Wisconsin's COVID-19 outbreak continues to grow--The positivity is still double the recommended amount meaning not enough people are being tested which in turn means there's likely a LOT more cases as yet undiscovered.
    Coronavirus worsens Arizona's teacher shortage --We already kinda knew this, but COVID-19 is exacerbating existing problems.
    White House COVID-19 outbreak shows the limits of testing; even the most accurate ones can miss the coronavirus early--For the "they get tested so they don't HAVE to wear masks!" crowd.

    Stay safe, folks.

    That's not an alternate reality, that's 2001 - 2009.

    If Herman Cain's twitter account is an example, they might keep fighting them even afterwards.

    Why?

    Trump is smearing Trump far better than Biden ever could, and his positive commercials are completely off the wall AWESOME.

    I watched just a little of his town hall. The bit I saw complemented his positive ads and presented him as forceful and knowlegable, and also someone who understands the needs of people in this country. And the part about Trump also being invited to do a Town Hall but so far not accepting the invitation was also a very strong anti-Trump ad in its own way.

    That's just his outer shell slowly vitrifying. Soon he will enter his chrysalis and begin his final metamorphosis.

    America 2020 is being directed by Ryan Murphy so yes, expect the twist in the final act to be the killer bees that were foreshadowed earlier in the year being instrumental him achieving ascension as the incarnation of Barry Goldwater that can only be sealed away with the power of K-Pop.
