COVID-19 Response

Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.

Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.

The Los Angeles Times' offers a four(!)-screener from Peter Wallsten entitled "Immigrant Issues Are Personal for Bush" (link).

Chronical editorial "Oakland may recognize 2 official languages -- and neither of them will be English" (sfgate . com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/chronicle/archive/2001/04/11/ED120412.DTL):
