All I know is this thing sucks. And it’s cost everyone a lot of money. It really hurt everyone I know who runs a business. Badly.
This is part of what bothers me about our country.  We measure EVERYTHING in dollars.

Pandemic?  How much is it hurting the economy?  
Hurricane?  How much did it hurt the economy?
War?  How much is it costing?

Hell, watch - a freakin' asteroid is going to crash into Dallas/Ft. Worth and guess what the story will be:  the damage to the local economy.

It's pretty revealing.

We "broke containment" last night to cook a fancy dinner for my wife's friend who just finished chemo for breast cancer. It was 6 people (three households).


Grilled some filets, had some comfort food sides, set a fancy table, and generally tried to make it especially nice for her.

F'ing nightmare. We were comfined to the kitchen because one of the couples has a 3-year-old and we had to confine the 80-lb puppy to his "jail" in the kitchen, and of course cook. Instead of people actually being *NORMAL* and hanging out in the kitchen, they all just sat around in the living room while we worked our asses off cooking. Everyone was annoying during dinner, and then of course when my wife and I were trying to clean up, nobody offered to help. 

But worst was that as we were going through dinner. We got to hear the stories about all the social interactions they've had, including an event the previous night. All the time while we were paranoid that we might give the recovering chemo patient COVID, so we have tried to be extra-careful for the last week. Great to hear that she was out and about the night before. 

By the end of the night my wife was like "when can we move to Austin?"...

In my experience in other countries, this is rather common everywhere.

Arizona is way down over the last month from where they were.

Impressive, they did close gyms and bars and larger gatherings.

Anyone want to predict what'll happen when bars open back up (and schools go in-person)?

We don't really know about schools, but when bars reopen, same thing that's happened everywhere else in the world that has done that.  The numbers go up.

You know, I always thought I liked you, but sometimes you're just really cruel.

Arizona didn't roll back all that much, bars and gyms and groups over 50, or somesuch.  They didn't lock down.

Georgia appears to have topped out and nothing has changed here at all, legally.

Florida is down as well, not new mandates or limitations.

And then there is Sweden ....

My own personal ignorant theory is that the lockdowns and other steps helped other areas avoid being New York et al as the virus spread through the country, so other regions got hit in a relatively minor way in the first wave. But I'm very concerned a second wave could hit, and be more uniform across the country.

First of all, I don’t really think that is true. The human side  of tragedies is always covered and it certainly has with this pandemic.  There has been intense focus on slowing the spread and the lives lost by this.

Secondly, to ignore the financial suffering people have incurred would be naive.  It’s real and it deserves to be talked about and taken into consideration.

No we don't.  That's just another one of your gross generalizations to fit your "I always see the worst in my country" mentality.
If we did measure EVERYTHING in dollars, everything would be wide open and we'd have 400,000 dead instead of 160,000.

Yeah, I don't hate my country.  I love that when someone isn't extreme enough for you, you put words in their mouth to be that extreme.  Fun.
