Choices
Author: BobR    Date: 03/04/2020 13:13:58

Yesterday's Super Tuesday election is a slice of where America is right now. It tells the story of a cautious America shell-shocked after 3 years of the disastrous tRump regime. It shows an electorate who felt "Berned" last time, and not willing to risk it again. In short - Biden brought home the bacon - and almost 300 electoral votes. Sanders gained less than 200. Warren is struggling with only 25 and couldn't even win her home state.

This - to me - says that while a lot of America would like to see some changes, they feel that going with the "safe" choice gets us going in the right direction. There's a lot of talk about Biden being a "moderate" (the Bernie-cult would use much less friendly sobriquets). While there was some initial thought that Warren would sap some "progressive" voters from Sanders, it seems that his Bernie-or-bust fanatics are not as prevalent as everyone (particularly themselves) would believe.

Today's the day - a good chunk of the country is voting today in the presidential primary, this Commonwealth included.

Are we here again?
Author: TriSec    Date: 03/01/2020 13:29:55

Good Morning.

I'm pretty sure most of us on this blog lived through the 80s. A disastrous pandemic swept through a narrow subset of society those four decades ago now. Remember this?

Fever Friday?
Author: wickedpam    Date: 02/28/2020 14:13:30

Feel like pop culture has been warning and preparing us for these pandemics for years. Think my whole bend toward scifi and fantasy was because Poe's Masque of the Red Death was horrifying, mysterious, and elegant. How could a story about a masquerade ball in a castle to lock out the plague not intrigue a kid? It also didn't hurt that on Saturday afternoons was the Creature Double Feature and would play movies like the Vincent Price adaptation.

The Storm Before the Storm
Author: BobR    Date: 02/26/2020 13:49:50

Last night was probably the last big debate for the Democrats. Sunday is the South Carolina primary, and the following Tuesday (one week from yesterday) is Super Tuesday, where voters in 16 states/territories cast their ballots. This was the last chance for the candidates to make an impression.

Things went mostly as expected. With Sanders being the current front-runner, he was the primary target for the other candidates:
