Telling people to Stay Home, without some assistance in getting food and water, is just crazy talk... The reason the Chinese COULD stay home during lockdown is that food and necessities were delivered.

This is obvious, but critical. Our Governor keeps saying Stay Home, but she doesn…

Its not quite so obvious as that. Those most at risk for dying from Covid are NOT the health care workers, its the elderly, and those in nursing homes.

My cousin in Belgium informs me they are treating the elderly and nursing home staff first, as those are most at risk.

Isn't …

While we can understand pressing people into service during these trying time, some decisions have been made which seem questionable, even dangerous.

Noteworthy is the Dept of Health using Emergency Rulemaking to lower the age of Direct Caregivers from 18 yoa to 16 yoa, for service …

How about us elders, over 80, who are NOT in nursing homes, and are forced to visit the stores, esp grocery stores, and pick up Covid?? Then, the doctors and the state want you to "stay home" because they don't want to get Covid from you.

Rather than concentrate on lawsuits, which comes with a host of problems, it would be more effective to change the incentive structure. For instance; stop giving the cops a minimum of 3 days, and often many more, off WITH PAY, after they shoot someone. How about WTHOUT PAY??? Right there …

So long as LANL, and others, get MORE money for messing up, why would we expect them to NOT mess up?? When, if ever, they get LESS money for messing up, they'll cleverly deal with the problem. At this point, it seems hopeless, as the incentives for LANL are to mess up, and run this game f…

The situation is tough for these stores, esp on the South Side, where the Covid is running hot. Walmart has a LOT of traffic, and their employees encounter more Covid in the surrounding area.

What might help, and has not been tried, is better MASKS, such as N95s, for the employees, …

That should not mean they have an absolute right to KILL someone who shoots at them!! Our firearms training sets the officer up to KILL, when in fact they could easily wound the suspect. European police training reflects that, as they shoot for the legs.

Also, with the now common us…

Typical Webber. More overhead and communicating His Commands to Us more effectively. As for input From the people, not so much.... All hail King Webber. He still has never had to answer for his role in the Elizabeth Dunham case. It seems his political career began only after her early and…

Looks like a blizzard of criminal charges given the facts related in the piece. Far too common with our police and DAs. The new DA really should deal with this aggressive overcharging, a feature of Serna and Padgett.
