R&A is short for the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrew's, governing body of golf outside the US and runs the British Open. And yes, it's the golf tourney I was talking about.
Cool thanks.  

And yeah, if the Olympics were canceled, then it was pretty safe to assume the large international golf tournaments are going to be canceled too.

I don't think we'll see any international sports until September at the earliest.

We still have little testing available in Iowa. We look so clean as a state. I think my secretary had a 50% chance of having it and recovering. She tested negative for flu and strep 2-weeks ago, but she didn't qualify for another test when she had a respiratory condition and she is mid-30s two weeks ago. Her 12-year old daughter brought it home from school and recovered quickly. Secretary had it a week or so. She was in here 1.5 hours 2-weeks ago. I insisted she go home, but I relented to her pleas because she is a single mother, for 1.5 hours, as I had dictation on queue.  After which I reminded her of her liberal vacation benefits she could burn. I asked her to leave. I am a one man law office. 

We still have little testing in Iowa. Our governor closed schools early, but we have no stay-at-home order.


As the availability of testing increases, health officials said last week they expect the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 to rise. Local health officials estimate they'll be able to test up to 60 patients a day for the novel coronavirus at a drive-thru testing site that opened March 27 in downtown Sioux City.

*  Half of us are going to come out of this quarantine as amazing cooks.  The other half will come out with a drinking problem

*  I need to practice social distancing from . . . the refrigerator

*  Still haven’t decided where to go for Easter/Passover . . . The Living Room or The Bedroom.

*  Every few days, try your jeans on just to make sure they fit.  Pajamas will have you believe all is well in the kingdom.

*  Homeschooling is going well.  2 students suspended for fighting and 1 teacher fired for drinking on the job!

*  I don’t think anyone expected that when we changed the clocks we’d go from Standard Time to Twilight Zone.

*  This morning I saw a neighbor talking to her cat.  It was obvious she thought her cat understood her.  I came into the house, told my dog . . . we laughed a lot.

*  So, after this quarantine, will the producers of My 600 Pound life just find me or do I find them?*  Quarantine Day 12:  Went to this restaurant called THE KITCHEN.  You have to gather all the ingredients and make your own meal.  I have no clue how this place is still in business!

*  My body has absorbed so much soap and disinfectant lately that when I pee it cleans the toilet.

*  Day 12 of Homeschooling:  One of these little monsters called in a bomb threat.

*  I’m so excited . . . it’s time to take out the garbage.  What to wear, what to wear?

*  I hope the weather is good tomorrow for my trip to Puerto Backyardia.  I’m getting tired of Los Livingroomia.

*  Classified Ad:  Single man with toilet paper seeks women with hand sanitizer for good clean fun.

*  Day 12 of Homeschooling:  My child just said “I hope I don’t have the same teacher next year.”  I’m offended.

I’ve reached that age where my mind goes from “You probably shouldn’t say that.” To “What the hell, let’s see what happens.”

https://www.al.com/news/2020/04/new-death-rate-projection-less-dire-for-alabama-no-longer-worst-in-nation.html

New projections released Sunday from the Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington paint a less frightening picture for Alabama as the state continues to face the COVID-19 pandemic.

Last week the IHME model showed Alabama could see the fourth highest total deaths from the novel coronavirus, and the highest death rate in the whole country. In the new projections, Alabama would be 16th in total deaths. The state would fall from first to 21st in deaths per capita.

The new projections show Alabama could still face anywhere from 378 to 1,996 coronavirus deaths by the middle of May, with a mean projection of fewer than 1,000 dead. Compare that with last week’s estimates, which were updated on April 1, and showed a mean projection of more than 5,000 deaths.

The projected death rate in Alabama fell from 11 in 10,000 people last week to a projection of fewer than 2 in 10,000 this week.

Excellent news.

This country values human lives. There absolutely would have been honest reporting of data. We also have a far better healthcare system. From China and their WHO (Wuhon Health Organization) buddies, you get this:

  Does anyone here on this board believe we'd have been open about it? 
.
If you're honest with yourself, it's a rhetorical question.
On this Board ?hell yes - did you even have to ask that?This board would have pulled the fire alarms,it's why I come here

It is an interesting take.  

Many with true good hearts and insight think long term and view them as the same.

I like him and nearly always disagree with him.
But I've got to ask this question:  say the virus started in Missouri.  Does anyone here on this board believe we'd have been open about it?  Been transparent?  Honest?  Would our current government have done anything China didn't? 
.

Lol wut?

You do realize that the CCP disappears and murders its own citizens whenever they please and they completely control the media?

A coverup here on that scale wouldn’t have been possible here. Period.
