"Blue canary in the outlet by the light switch..."

Unexpectedly sunny this afternoon. We made it to 67˚F, and it's currently 62˚F.

I did not write today.

As of 4:30 p.m. (CT) this afternoon, there were 157 confirmed cased of Covid-19 in Alabama, 71 of them in Jefferson County, 17 in Shelby County. One of the Jefferson County cases is from Leeds. It should be noted that one of the state's central testing centers is out of the test, so...getting accurate numbers is going to be even harder.

Today, I made an apple pie. Tonight we watched Westworld and Vikings.

Here are a few things I posted to Facebook today:

“Only when it is dark enough can you see the stars.” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

I actually just saw several scraps of human offal rejoicing that Italy is suffering almost a thousand deaths a day from Covid-19...because said offal doesn't like the Catholic Church.

If you're the sort of creepy motherfucker who's rejoicing that any particular group is especially likely to suffer death by Covid-19 because you imagine that serves your agenda, please "unfriend" me right now. I do not want you here. I want no association with you. You are scum.

You heard it here.
