6. It's saddening that someone in their family has to die....

before so many see the light. There was a case in Ohio discussed on DU elsewhere today where a 60YO man said the virus was a hoax and he just died from it. The obituary in their local newspaper said his memorial would be conducted on-line and asked everyone to observe safe distances. Sad, and this guy had a college education and ran a business.

I see Boris Johnson changed his tune and it will be interesting to see how that plays out with the UK's re-opening and if it affects Trump's attitudes at all (I doubt it).

Statement from a Dem politician in South Carolina from article I posted:

“The tragedy is that we have lost workers but the workload has increased. We have fewer workers doing the job of many,” said state Rep. Gilda Cobb-Hunter, the top Democrat on the House’s budget-writing committee. “These budget chickens have come home to roost and all of us will pay for it.”

I did some environmental work in SC years ago and the DHEC discussed extensively in the article also covers industrial air and water pollution. It's quite evident from the article the agency has be severely whacked since my days there, so that means air and water will take a far back seat for many years (if ever).

Sadly, their DHEA will remain toothless so long as the Federal EPA has been weakened, thanks to Trump. It's sickening to read how the Rethug DHEA heads speak so proudly of their budget cuts.

SC has a very large number of poor people and they will suffer the most, with many case not even reported. SC is also an extremely racist state. I witnessed it in detail.
