    Smallpox comes to mind as well. I’ve walked through the graveyards in England where the plague visited. So far this is mild.

    This ‘plague’ has the intrigue of an election year the catalyzing factors of the Information Age and the dangers of geopolitical entanglements.

    As one whose life is enmeshed in public gatherings I have far too many conflicts of interest. Navigating these seas could require jettisoning many things.

    May we all be blessed with the mind of Christ as we make daily choices.

    BD,

    “As one whose life is enmeshed in public gatherings I have far too many conflicts of interest. Navigating these seas could require jettisoning many things.”

    I hope you speak to that more specifically…I’m trying to decide what is non negotiable as a person at high risk…

    Amen X 10 Michael. Especially 1-10.

    I recently did a wee bit reading about the Black Death plague. Astounding. Upwards of 60% of the population of Europe perished! Current estimates for the fatality rate for my age group is around 1%.

    You know though, sometimes people really annoy me. Here is Georgia, just the mention of a tropical storm or any snow sends people in droves to the stores and they hoard milk, bread, and gasoline. What the F are people going to do with 8 loaves of bread and 4 gallons of milk if they are stuck in their house for 1.2 days because of a few snow flurries?

    Sorry for the near cursing. Sometime I just can’t stand dumb people.

  4. Dan from Georgia says:

    Fatality rate of Corona virus for my age group. Sheesh. Typing in anger not good.

  5. Michael says:

    Dan,
    I hear you…thankfully, the attitudes seemed pretty upbeat here…nothing too crazy.

    Between my daughter the critical care dialysis nurse and my daughter the substitute teacher (her BIL has the virus, is in isolation, intubated and being given remdesivir) I am learning just how seriously the healthcare and education folk are taking this coronavirus… must be because they really don’t know what they’re dealing with ? ? ?
    If Michael was my son, i think i’d not want him out and about PERIOD! Do i hear an amen? Anybody?
    BTW, Michael, now you folks have me worried about running out of TP. LOL
    But we do live in the devil’s domain for the present and he is not a nice guy… God give us Faith, calm minds and always the blessed hope… Rejoice in His will? Amen

    No hand sanitizer to be found in my area. Tough for my teacher wife who wants to replenish her classroom supply.

    Second Em’s suggestion of putting Micheal in protective isolation. Don’t want anything more to happen to our beloved PhP. Do they make hamster balls in his size???

  8. Michael says:

    Hamster balls ? 🙂
    I’m pretty isolated, but it’s still amazing how many times a day you have contact with people even when you’re a hermit like me…

    Spanish flu epidemic of the late nineteen-teens…ditto. We Americans love our drama and our outrage–both hot with extra onions.

  10. Pat Nobody says:

    On the other hand, I don’t want a cold with a 1/50 chance of killing me. The death rate for Michael’s and BD’s age group is much higher than 1%

  11. Pat Nobody says:

    To your admonition to trust the technocracy – remember that to the politician, a good crisis is not to be wasted, as stated by Churchill and more recently Rahm Emmanuel.

  12. Em says:

    I want one of those giant hamster balls … I could just roll into the river and float out to the highway.. Scare everybody to death. 😂

  13. Nancy Holmes says:

    Okay–I just checked and there is such a thing on YouTube, Em. Since there is a wide selection to choose from, I’ll just point folks in that direction and they can decide which one to watch. “Giant Hamster Ball”–go for it!!

    “One of the most irritating aspects of human nature is the need to find someone to blame for everything. ”

    Hmmmm….. could it be that we all have a bit of the accuser of brethren in us?

  15. Nancy Holmes says:

    It’s okay if we blame Satan, isn’t it?

  16. Muff Potter says:

    1) What the does the Bible say about the coronavirus?

    Nada, zilch, zero.
    But if ya’ try real hard, you can make it say just about anything…
