The Denver Post just published a map of documented COVID-19 cases in Denver's neighborhoods.

My neighborhood, Washington Park, is the WORST!  (I live one block away from the park.)

My wife and I have been wearing masks on our daily walks in the park for the past week or so, but I have noticed that many pedestrians and most bicyclists out there are still not wearing masks -- especially the young people-- and the park has been unusually crowded since the local schools were closed.

We may have to start strolling on the side streets-- but even those are crowded now.

I tried wearing my mask while skating (Rollerblading) my daily 5 miles out there, but my sunglasses get fogged over quickly.  No can do.

"According to New York City Fire Department data obtained by The Daily Beast, EMTs  have reported 2,192 “dead-on-arrival” calls over the last two weeks. On average, the department handled about 453 of those calls over the same period last year. That data also showed that the number of cardiac or respiratory arrest calls has exploded, from 20 to 30 a day at the end of March and the beginning of April in 2019, to 322 on one day in April in 2020—with more than 100 calls every day since March 28. While 30 to 50 percent of those calls ended in a death in 2019, more than 50 percent of those calls have ended in a death every day since March 22 this year, with the percentage steadily rising to 75 percent as of April 5."

I read about this in an article Jeff Carter linked around two weeks ago now with a followup article a few days ago.  It seems like the only way to really stop this stuff is contact tracing and quarantining.  Will it ever happen here?

If anything, the number is probably understated:

This is what I thought.  Many people simply die at home or on the street.  As everyone knows, NYC is a jungle.  I was there twice, and I never want to go back.  My idea of a great place to live is Santa Barbara, La Jolla, Naples, Florida, Boston in the summer. 

New York? Yech. Remember Midnight Cowboy?

The whole thing is turning into a joke. The bluest of blue states, including my own, NJ, seem to have gone the most restrictive as far as letting people assemble. The only hint of Liberal principals is the way corona deaths are counted. Luckily, out here in the burbs, the local police are not playing the governors game. Gun permits are flying out of police stations at a very fast rate despite the surge in volume. 
 

There are lots of documents dropping the past 24 hours showing how the whole Russian collusion hoax should have been shut down a month before the 2016 election.

Some very powerful people; think Comey, Brennan, McCabe, Mueller and Strzok did some very bad things. No one should be surprised the country has been sent into a panic.

Maybe some experts in the area of American coup d’etats could look into whether Sara Strzok had anything to do with any of the predictive models that are better than 100% off the actual data, that tanked the economy nevertheless.

Like Russiagate and the Impeachment, the Pandemic Panic is not going as planned. 
 

The Deep States desperation is now their own death. History is being made.

One would think a bunch of JFK aficionados would be less gloomy, or at least a little suspicious of the Official Narrative. 

 

A Montana based physician has blown the whistle on how the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is exaggerating the COVID-19 death toll by manipulating Coronavirus death certificates.Dr. Annie Bukacek, MD, is a longtime Montana physician with over 30 years of experience practicing medicine. Signing death certificates is a routine part of her job.

Dustin Hoffmann had the showier part in Midnight Cowboy, Voight had a more difficult part. You could not do it technically like Hoffmann did.

Voight is one of the subtlest, most empathic actors in America.  If I had to compare him to someone it would probably be Christian Bale.

But compared to Bale, he mishandled his career. And that's an understatement.

That movie (Midnight Cowboy) and Taxi Driver are just disturbing on so many different levels.

 

Best NYC Themed Movies by decade they were set in.

1970s  = Taxi Driver. 

Runner Up - The Warriors

1980s  = Wall Street

Runner Up = Bright Lights, Big City

1990s = The Wolf of Wall Street

2020s = Escape from NY

Do The Right Thing = best NYC film set in the 80’s.  
Runners up: Wall Street, After Hours.

No way, Robert!

Nothing beats the Abel Ferrara 90’s NYC double feature —

Bad Lieutenant and The King of New York.

I think they're both great parts in Midnight Cowboy, but the proof of Voight's work is that Charlize Theron stole his Joe Buck voice and mannerisms lock, stock and barrel to play Aileen Wournos in Monster, and won an Oscar.

Just watch Monster and tell me I'm wrong.
