About Me

65 years old. Lifelong democrat. Saw JFK in New Haven CT on election eve 1960. I was all of 5 years old. Cast my first vote for Jimmy Carter. Stayed up all night at the English Speaking Union I London to watch the returns. We celebrated the results about 9 AM London time. I cried the morning I learned Bobby Kennedy had been shot. I don't think I ever quite recovered, although President Obama's election helped a lot. These days I'm a moderate democrat and a cultural conservative. I miss the world of good manners, fancy dress and dancing cheek to cheek. Big TCM fan.

I hope you can read the whole thread.
I'll try to synthesize a little. System is not overwhelmed with numbers. A lot of incidental cases of people coming in for other reasons and testing positive. No big demand for oxygen as in other waves
System strain at the moment is because of health professionals being out presumably because of testing positive. Still early.
At least that's what I get out of it.
