Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

Just how accurate is this test any way? I'm starting to hear that the test they are using will give a so-called positive result if you have antibodies in your system for the common cold. https://uncoverdc.com/2020/04/07/was-the-covid-19-test-meant-to-detect-a-virus/ Scroll down past the first coupl...

Re: Schools and Covid

In this morning's news, Washington's governor Inslee has declared that schools will reopen in stages, in a manner sensitive to social inequities. White children will be the last to go back. I'm kidding you not.

Re: Texts vs. Emails vs. Phone Calls

During most of my professional life, people actually wrote letters . It was only during the final few years that e-mail had become popular, and even then it was resisted by many of us in the legal world because it was both insecure and unreliable. Entire cases could be dismissed, or orders of defaul...

Re: HCQ does work

When scientific rigor has gone out the window and all we have left are variations on the theme of fraud, I'd suggest that the bar is disproportionately high when it comes to hydroxychloroquine. Note that the CoVid-19 vaccine has been not only declared "safe" but has been mandated by at least two uni...

Re: The effects of COVID-19 on Dentistry

I think I would have been tempted to respond, "Dr. Kellogg, how were your grades in dental school?"

Re: Where would you move?

How about Sand Point, Idaho? Or Sequim (pronounced "Squim"), Washington? Jackson Hole, Montana? Chapel Hill, North Carolina?

Would you need to be near a university, or would this be a retirement thing?

Golden CO, 1977: woodsy, sparse with the occasional coyote; 2014: fairly dense suburb.
And it neighbors Rocky Flats, which is radioactive as hell.

Re: Where would you move?

Just don't remember those areas well enough to comment, and it's been so many years. I'd love to take a road trip and find out!

Re: Where would you move?

p.s. how about Colorado? Especially the Denver area toward the mountains. It so happens I've got family there. Denver is a pit, but the Rocky mountains to the west are wonderful. It's been decades since I was there, but Boulder used to be a wonderful college town; not sure how it's fared over the l...
