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.

Plus, profits for those who employ you now or in the future. NeoLiberalism is anti-American but it pays well. MT @MrWalterShapiro [to Trump's "Esperanto" tweet] Trump is proud that someone in his Cabinet speaks a global language that is supposed to inspire peace and harmony.

Crow that to a normal person, they'll think you're nuts & they'll know you're a lil' Honecker. Just like Twitter employees. MT @LItalianoVero [bio crows about "ridding Twitter of Ed & Brian [Krassenstein]"]

Still don't quite understand why Biden doesn't run against Hillary. Is there some dark planet force at work? http://t.co/qs0unNmUTH

@kausmickey Why Biden might not want to run: Age, fear of being three-time presidential loser and lack of policy differences with Hillary.

@mrwaltershapiro Seem like insufficient reasons. He'd have fun. He cld win. And you don't think he thinks he'd be better Prez (true or not)?

@kausmickey One other thing to remember about Biden -- he has a visceral memory of 2008 when he was broke and Obama and Hillary ruled TV.

@MrWalterShapiro @kausmickey just aren't many Dems who oppose HRC.

@richardmskinner @kausmickey Polls and observation point up Hillary's popularity with Democratic base. Media more bored than Dem voters.

.@MrWalterShapiro: Kaus' business model is to write about things but not actually try to solve them. *Not* stopping amnesty makes him money.

I spent most of my twenties hoping that Lauren Bacall would knock on my door and ask if I had a light. Nada. But that's why I'm not Bogart.

@JohnJHarwood I was married in my thirties and didn't think that my continuing Lauren Bacall fantasies needed to be shared with the group.
