  1. OK, thanks for this - interesting to see how others view this issue.
  2. And do you have an opinion of how she has performed relative to neighbouring S.D.'s Gov. Noem?
  3. Thanks for this. And is there a relevant metric by which you can see the consequences of her poor judgment - is it new cases, or something else?
  4. Ya, but what has the Gov. done wrong? That's really my Q.
  5. Why do you feel she has bungled this crisis?
  6. Ya, at this point it's working against him, that's for sure.
  7. What unprecedented qualities does it have that you're referring to here, and why do you think that would transfer to an inability of humans to develop immunity?
  8. That word, I do not think it means what you think it means.
  9. Not sure what you're talking about here. You don't think herd immunity applies to COVID-19? If so, why? There's little good evidence for this view.
  10. Ya, could be important. These trends might also quickly change in a given state. Issue as a whole might also fade from the headlines by Nov., or re-emerge and dominate the headlines. We'll see.
  11. Here's a primer, Pat. https://www.webmd.com/lung/what-is-herd-immunity#1 which even talks specifically about how it relates to COVID-19.
  12. Sure - I'm skeptical of increases in police force, militarization of police departments, and so on.
  13. I don't know, but either way this is an unusual case ('immunocompromized'). Herd immunity is about a significant % of people developing immunity, not everyone. Those who have immunity prevent the disease from spreading, such that everyone is protected. This is the idea with allowing herd immunity to develop amongst the young and healthy while simultaneously isolating the old and unhealthy - once the former are through it, they then protect everyone else.
  14. Not sure where you're getting your stats. According to this article https://www.theroot.com/here-s-how-many-people-police-killed-in-2019-we-think-1841183889 in 2019 there were 1,112 people killed by police in the U.S. The article you link to (I can't read it because it's behind a paywall) says 1,000 in the headline. This is in a nation of 320M+ people. The next question is how many of those killings are unjust. That's a good question, but police are obviously doing dangerous work dealing with thugs, robbers, gang members, and so on.
