Looks like we're going to set the death record for the second straight day. What's with all this talk about things leveling off? The UWash models said we were supposed to peak five days ago. Then it changed to Monday. Now Tues and Wed and it's hitting new highs when it looked like we'd be declining.

aww c'mon Space, you're a stats guy - you know that when you're developing a model on the fly for a novel situation and with incomplete data, the model's predictions are going to change every time you insert new data and/or revise the old data.  consider how much we don't know: infection rates (due to lack of testing), mortality rate, intensity of the outbreak (aka R0), distribution of immunity (antibodies), whether antibodies are even relevant with this disease, etc...  with so many squishy unknowns and tenuous assumptions, any wonder that the models' outputs change regularly?

a bunch of really bright ones decided it was ok to clog the streets of Lansing, MI to protest the stay at home Order there...  even managed to block an ambulance.. funny how the right to freely assemble only applies to conservatives

How do you know they were conservatives?

A conservative group made up of entitled white men and their wives who canít think for themselves is headed to our capitol to protest our governor's stay at home orders.

lots of Red hats and trump flags and calling themselves patriots (while blocking ambulances)

anecdotal, but i have an FB acquaintance who is a MI conservative and based on his posts and his like-minded friends this is definitely a highly partisan conservative movement.  they're protesting the fact that a Dem in power as much as the lock-down.  they just needed an excuse.

I was oblivious to the story when I posted my question but after reading a bit about it, the answer was obvious.

Well the first day of online school is cancelled because kids started spamming the site with porn and racist garbage and dick pics in their avatars. What a great country we live in. Instead of making the day up tomorrow (they have half their classes on Wed and half on Fri, so one 45 min session per week), they're just skipping it and starting Friday.
this is how it was framed on WTOP
Fairfax County Public Schools canceled all teacher-led instruction for the rest of the day amid widespread technical issues preventing students from accessing distance learning tools.
I liked your version better

School cancelled rest of week because of dick pics.

man...what is May going to look like if we are at 22Mil unemployeed right now
More than 5 million Americans filed for unemployment benefits last week, bringing the total in the month since the coronavirus pandemic throttled the U.S. economy to 22 million and effectively erasing a decade worth of job creation.

Well at least itís slowing

A lot of this is temporary unemployment

The concern is how to reopen parts of economy given Trump is doing nothing like he is supposed to be

That is going to be the dagger when our neighborhood pool closes. Family meltdown imminent.

Oh well thatís a good point. Sorry, when I hear pool, I just assumed we are talking about a temperature controlled saltwater pool.
