Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

We've been told all along follow the science, follow the data. Here's a chart for Illinois excess deaths. Back to the normal range.

Re: Maximum Bond Upside

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

It is quite a grand experiment. The hardest thing to break seems the thinking a positive test = near certain death. And there will always be news stories showing this. I have faith it will end.

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion
