No, I haven't. I'm sure it's awful. I don't like for-profit prisons at all. I don't think they should be legal. Some reporting I've read has been surrounding for-profit work programs that are basically prisons for people who are convicted of drug offenses that are disgusting. But I always push back when for-profit prisons are seen as the issue in prison reform. I'd put it way down on the list. Blaming them, IMO, is often a way to blame capitalism when the actual problem is the power of the state.

But I get you were throwing that out there with some mischievousness. You're not one of those people. I'm just being difficult. 

ha. Well here ya go; try to enjoy the rest of the day, I guess.

so wtf is going on in Mississippi?   Why is it so bad there.  Do they all just slobber all over each other or something?  

It's kids.  Doubt they are that diligent with washing hands, covering sneezes and coughs, not touching a bunch of stuff, including each other.  Just young savages.

The Miss. outbreak is something that should be expected when school resumes I don’t care how many precautions a school takes. Want to see a spike? We haven’t seen anything like we’ll see when kids start school and bring the virus home. 

I agree we should expect it, but I hope it doesn't kick off a shitstorm with parents/grandparents.  The reaction could be drastic, and the governors could make some decisions that just tick more folks off.

The percentage of deaths occurring in nursing homes and assisted living facilities has crept up to 45%. It's getting worse, it was 40% a couple months ago.

Quick update. My wife’s cousin has taken a turn for the worse. Barring a miracle, she’s not going to make it. Pretty sad. Just 43.

Unfortunately, a final update. At 5:30 a.m., my wife's cousin Senta died at age 43. So very sad.

Thank you all for the well wishes.

So I found out my sister her husband and their  three kids have it. They only have sniffles and loss of taste and smell so far. They are all quarantined at home and bored stir crazy. Pray they get out of it with just minor symptoms.

My prayers are with them.
