Meanwhile, 'outside'...
Author: TriSec    Date: 04/18/2020 11:57:07

Good Morning.

While we've been sequestering ourselves and ignoring most of the outside world of late, some strange normal things have been happening in New England.

A Pewter Lining
Author: BobR    Date: 04/15/2020 12:56:07

The coronavirus pandemic has completely dominated the news over the last 2 months. Day after day, there's been bad news after bad news. Here at FourFreedomsBlog, we've been writing about it fairly consistently. It's a dark cloud which hangs over us all.

However there are some bright spots too. Not exactly a silver lining - more of a pewter lining. In some small ways, the environment is recovering, and showing us what could happen if mankind shrunk its footprint.

One of the most polluted areas on the planet is China. "Made in China" is seemingly ubiquitous on labels, and their air shows the result of that. However, since the lockdown there brought a lot of traffic and manufacturing to a halt, air quality has improved tremendously.

Now I am become Death; the destroyer of worlds
Author: TriSec    Date: 04/14/2020 11:31:31

Good Morning.

Consider for a moment, the words of President Lincoln:


With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation's wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan.

Different Places

Good Morning.

Waaay back on February 1, before any of this started, I jumped in my car and drove down the Coast to Lake Worth, Florida.

Every Day
Author: BobR    Date: 04/08/2020 13:03:23

Every day brings more news on the Coronavirus and little else. I could write about the increasing number of cases (about 30K per day in the U.S.), the increasing number of deaths, the declining number of available hospital beds, or the dwindling supplies of equipment for healthcare workers.

I could write about the bad behaviors, particularly pResident tRump holding his ego-feeding daily briefings, and railing at reporters who ask him real questions. I could write about people who ignore medical advice, and get together in groups with strangers. I could write about the shoppers who won't keep their distance and hoard supplies that are needed by others. I could write about that small percentage of scientists who provide contrary advice, like the epidemiologist who suggests we end lockdowns and self-distancing (trigger-warning - this link is from WND).

Good Morning.

'tis true; we've all been living under a rock for the last few weeks. But unless your internet is down, you're aware of the controversy swirling around the USS Theodore Roosevelt.
