    Florida set back to back new records for daily deaths.  186 yesterday, 216 today.  And Disney is still open and schools open in a few weeks...

    I just can't understand how we're not only watching this happen, but actively encouraging it to get worse.
    I think it is explainable. The last four years there has been a war on science, facts, and the media. People of all backgrounds have been coditioned to distrust facts. For good reason, there have been major misinformation campaigns that blur the lines of what actually is true. I've seen people I grew up with (mostly POC in inner cities) who think it's either a hoax or a government conspiracy. Nevermind the rich people who don't want covid to get in the way of their profit sheet. 

    The U.S. is in bad shape and i don't have much hope things are going to get better. Think about how many people still refuse to wear a mask? Pure insanity.

    Kingpin

    Such a classic. Woody and Bill Murray are just A+ in this. The end showdown with the hair is just truly special. 

    I read the other day that Murray hit all three stirkes in a row in one take, and it caused the crowd to go wild. They also mentioned how he improvised just about all his lines in the film. Pretty crazy. Makes me want to do a re-watch (it's been many years).

    Don't forget that when the majority of people dying are people who would vote against you there is certainly less reason for the government to take it seriously. I'm quite embarrassed by the whole thing.

    Is this a joke? 6x as many cases as anywhere else in the world.
