I'd appeal, based on your history. Blue Cross?
Yes.

I'll talk it over with the doc when I have my physical this year.

Have them throw a COVID party, and your whole team will be done by mid July, ready for kickoff in September!

One thing that occurs to me that is, in my experience, the handful of tough problems I looked into in depth had no simple one dimensional solutions.  Simple solutions are appealing of course, one can claim "IF only X had done Y in time this would have been avoided", but I think that rarely is true.  Part of this is the lack of reliable facts in many cases of course.  Part of it is that if something has a simple solution it is usually implemented, and resolved, before it becomes very "newsworthy".

I think this applies to the viral outbreak, the police situation, racism, climate change, the national debt, the problem with politics, you name it.  I doubt there are simple solutions despite what various Facebook memes might lead one to believe.

I was chatting with someone about the Convention of the States as a means to pass Congressional term limits, and I pointed out some of the vagaries and latitudes such a convention could in fact take.  It sounds like a nice simple solution, but probably would be nothing like that.

And even then term limits might not solve much of anything either...

A Convention of the States could easily turn into something rather scary.  The limits and procedures on such a thing are left very very vague in the Constitution.

I think it would be fun to see that portion of the Constitution at work, though.   I'm scary that way. :)

"FUN" = "VERY SCARY".  There are almost no limits on what could happen in a CotS.

Of course, one might think the Great Thinkers and Political Giants of today are better than what we had in 1787.

One might think that.  I certainly don't...

Just remember, the Constitutional Convention was supposed to tweak the Articles of Confederation, and completely rewrote it in a way that pissed off a LOT of people. 

I suppose a convention of the states would do the same.

Eh, I was told 4 months ago that 2-3 million Americans were surely going to die.  We're a far cry from that so I guess we're doing alright.

Yeah, in the sense that if I threaten to amputate your leg but only settle for two toes, we're doing alright...

I don't believe there's really anything at all we can do to alter the area under the curve, so I think we're doing no better nor worse than we would under any other circumstances, to be honest.

Areas that went on hard lock-downs early, didn't eradicate this thing and they're seeing case rates increase as they open up.  At this point I view this as inevitable.  

So the fact that it turns out the virus isn't going to be lethal enough to kill 2-3 million Americans, is about the best news we can expect.
