great song by elvis costello - always loved that one - his first 2-3-4 albums were all Incredibly goodstuffd with gems & instant classics.
waiting for the end of the world is what i seem to be doing right now as well.
living up in seattle we are seeing the corona virus "thing" unfold right in our midst.
i won't rehash the news - but it has been a slow response by the "authorities" that has
brought us to where we are now, darn - i just watch some news from foreign countries
to get a better hang for what is evolving around the world in "outbreak" locations...,
i'm thinking china - south korea and italy - those geographical areas in the outbreak zone
are completely sealed off - schools are closed - no one on the streets except for a brave few
no car traffic - ghost-town like vidos coming out of those locations -
and i kinda guess in 2 weeks or a month seattle will be somewhat similar, just how similar
who knows ?
luckily the virus itself spares children and young healthy adults - but the biggest public health issue is that the hospitals will quickly fill to capacity with the oldest and medically compromised
others - the end game is machine assisted breathing - respirators i think they call them, there are only so many of those spread out to serve the general need , they are gonna have to hustle to get
that issue solved -
other than that - waiting for... - i'm fine -
enjoyed the bloodwitch sampler - gonna have to decide which are my favorites and which are ?
