Why I Have Nothing to Say About the Extinction-Level Event Going on Around Us All

I am not a physician nor an epidemiologist.

I've been so unsociable as a habit for so long that right now the greatest impact on my life from the Chinese disease pandemic is caused by other people who would have had no impact on my life whatsoever under normal circumstances. How's that for a kick in the head?

Even just going to the store is such an ordeal that I had gotten in the habit years ago of buying large amounts of consumables so that I can avoid going back for as long as possible. And yes, that includes what you think. It was fine when I was the only one doing it...

I saw a model output for a low-population-density state out west that anticipated the spread of the Chinese disease tapering off starting in the latter half of next month.

Let's all hope so. And let's all hope there's an effective vaccine and sufficient treatment resources if/when it comes back.

Our retirement savings are still down by almost 20% from before people started acting like it was the end of the world. If we could just get that turned around...

Yeeaaaaahhhh..... that'd be great...
