...according to people like Bill Gates, it looks like an April reopening of the economy is no bueno.
What exactly did he say? When does he expect the lockdown to end?

It was this article/video.

He goes into into a fair amount of detail regarding his thinking.
When Bill Gates speaks, I listen! He DOES do his homework before he says anything. He's the anti-instinct decision maker!

Smith, thanks for the link. I agree with Vinny, it was an excellent interview. Also depressing.
I'd also add that I believe that Bill Gates is the type who Under Promises But Over Delivers compared to our politician prototype who Over Promises But Under Delivers.

I could not believe yesterday how self-congratulatory they were towards one another because for one of the rare times they acted like the rest of us do. Look at a problem and solve it rather than taking fixed, rigid positions because.....that's just what I believe.

Which of you can identify who is in this picture? I nominate Dualstow for getting it first.

And, how many better ways could the virus be transmitted than by those water suppliers in the picture!!??

On the first page I thought this is not going to be a good book. Why is he telling us about this random guy on the internet. Then the big twist.

I just finished the book tonight. It's one that deserves to be read more slowly and studied so as to put into practice what the book proscribes.

I decided I need to have a permanent reference copy. The copy I read was a library copy. So a short while ago I purchased a Kindle version. While I'm rereading it it will then allow me to send out excerpts of it to various places.

I saw a lot of descriptions in it where my organization is making errors of "intelligence" Hopefully, with this new found knowledge, I can assist in correcting those errors.

But primarily I read it to correct some of my own errors in thinking (something to which I'd guess Libertarian666 (and some others here) believes is WAY overdue!).

I think she’s the one Vinny was posting about this morning.

Yes. Friday afternoon. Just after I'd seen it live.

Is there an equivalent chart looking at deaths or hospitalizations? Total cases is more of a chart of how much testing is being done.
