    Reports are beginning to surface that the Postmaster General is actively attempting to slow down the mail.

    Sad to see the schools who have reopened are already struggling to contain the spread.

    The school stuff does not look good. Everyone should have access to daily tests that are quick and cheap. With the high case rate in many parts of the US, it’s the only way to return safely and snuff out emerging threats. Sound crazy? It’s not and there are tests out there that would accomplish this goal. But there has been no concerted effort by federal government to push for their production and widespread use.The end result will be too many schools rushing back without a mechanism to control inevitable outbreaks. It didn’t have to be this way.

    The lack of a plan or strategy can best be explained by 45's tiny hands being unable to grasp the thin strand of reality he remains tethered to.

    I give it until the end of the month when the K-12 schools will throw up their hands and say "we can't tell the difference between colds, flu, allergies, and covid - and no one can get a quick test, everyone go home."

    This may be a bit selfish, but one group that hasn't been thought about much is special needs children. Parents such as myself do not have alternative child care situations and are not certified in certain therapies. This pandemic has not, thankfully, effected us economically, but has only worked to socially isolate my family further than what we were due to the special needs.

    GREAT PERSPECTIVE!!! We are literally run by the Headless Horsemen and a staff with no one who finished higher than one from the bottom in class rank.

    Interesting numbers here for Iowa and HS sports that just completed. I know their numbers are never shown with many other states' numbers for high cases, butI'd be pretty pleased and encouraged with these figures if I were a parent, AD, Principal, coach etc in Iowa. It's a start:

    As we strive for a return to normalcy through sports and other sectors, perfectly illustrates yet another misplaced priority during this pandemic crisis.

    With over 72,000 small businesses permanently closed and millions of others affected or temporarily closed, forecasts a dark economic reality for many citizens. It also says how necessary the US needs to get the virus under control. Yet folks continue to blatantly disregard the requested protocols.

    Iowa HS baseball season ends tonight (only state where HS sports have taken place since pandemic) It wasn’t exactly smooth sailing with Covid but: - 94% of teams were unaffected - 96% finished season - all infections reportedly mild - fans were allowed all season

    Yeah people keep trying to “get back to normal” without taking the steps to ensure we can do so.

    Not surprised on the property taxes Bob. It is New Jersey. Love Haddonfield. My dentist at the time was in Moorestown. My time in NJ I have the memory of all of those buses coming and going on the Atlantic City Expressway filled with retirees from Philly and NYC and other places on their way to gamble in the casinos and eat in the fancy restaurants. Yes, they would bus people in every day and night. And Trump still couldn't turn a profit. You have to be a really inept businessman to fail at casino ownership with those house odds. Only Donald. He was considered a laughable joke even back then. I did see a lot of good floor shows in those casinos.

    One of the things we really miss is going to Manhattan on the bus--the only way to go. If we make it to NYC we will eat at Pergola des Artistes for the 40th consecutive year. I went there in Nov of '80 on a Wednesday and ate there the next night and it has been a drink on the house since that Thursday. It is a delightful place and

    everybody knows my name. I bore a resemblance to Phil Donahue and must have had 20 pictures taken by tourists during the '80's--my large ego ate it up! The restaurant is between 8th and 9th on West 46th.
    We are 92 miles from NYC and 18 minutes from Philly by train.
    Going back to taxes, I had a friend who was paying $42,000 in taxes and was sending his boys to a Catholic HS. The day he moved to Moorestown he was $30,000 ahead as his taxes dropped to $10.000 and his boys had graduated, so he was saving another $32,000 with no school to pay for. As much as I loved Indy and as much as I dislike the property tax here I still plan on staying here.

    Last but not least, the Trump casino was torn down last year. How could he not make money with a casino? It's very very obvious he was never a business man. I hope he is a bad memory after November!!

    As college players begin to realize how much power they have to control the money machine, concerns over staying safe during the pandemic will develop. SEC players met yesterday in attempt how universities planned to manage safety protocols once the students return. The meeting was leaked. Similarly PAC 10 has over 100 players who are saying they will refuse to play. Players are understandably worried about their health. Whether they actually decide to play is still an unknown. Stinks since I love college football but this is the reality.

    I only looked quickly at the PAC-12 thing, but it seems like they were making a pitch to be compensated (the same age-old argument of the last 15-20 years) but using the pandemic as their excuse. Didn’t seem to be overly related to their safety based on their list of demands. Maybe I missed it.

    I don’t ever want to hear another word about Joe Biden. This Trump idiot is so stupid he can’t even grasp the most basic concepts. He’s like a toddler whose parents explained one thing to him and when questioned he has no clue. No chance he actually did the work required to graduate from UPenn.

    I have never seen UPenn claim any relationship with him! For the matter Fordham also seems not to want to be associated him

    No fans for 500.

    “We didn’t buy the Speedway for one year, we bought it for generations to come, and it’s important to our reputation to do the right thing,” Penske said in a telephone interview.
