Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneus thoughts and observations.

Just saying but if Governor Andrew Cuomo's disastrous COVID-19 policy of putting infected patients into nursing homes did cost 10,000 lives - that's well over three times the number of people who died in the Twin Towers on September 11th...  Prediction - any Power Five Conference college that does not allow football in the Fall of 2020 will have a new University President by the Spring of 2021... "To bankrupt a fool, give him information." - Nassim Taleb (note to self - never play poker with Nassim)... Disney World to reopen in mid-July but among other conditions they will require patrons to wear face masks. Little kids being forced to wear masks in the Orlando heat of July and August? No fucking thank you! Someone should start a DisneyWorldMeltdowns Twitter feed now. That or you'll see everyone pretty much ignore the rule after a week of operation. My money is on the latter... "Science is the belief in the ignorance of experts." - Richard Feynman. When this is all over I think the phrase "experts say" will be equated with "bullcrap"... In other space news Virgin Orbit had an "anomaly" on Monday's attempted launch. I'd rather have a delay...
