Between The Desire And The Spasm, Between The Potency And The Existence, Between The Essence And The Descent, Falls The ONT

So, no negative Wuhan Flu stuff tonight. Instead, I'm going to try and have any flu stories be positive. Lets start off by checking our horoscopes, shall we?


America. Fuck Yeah!

What does America do best? We answer the call, baby. To steal a line from John David Khan's wonderful American Heart, “The greatest liberator, innovator, cultivator, freedom knows”. Fuck it, let's just start off with the song itself:

US Lab Unveils Portable 5-Minute Coronavirus Test

Answering the coronavirus: exponential American innovation

American innovation, responding to a nationwide (and global) crisis. Want more? US Biotech company has a vaccine ready for live testing. In just 6 weeks! All across America, distilleries have turned on a dime to produce hand sanitizer. We all know the Mr. Pillow story, you can't have missed it, the MSM is outraged that a company run by an unapologetic Christian is retooling to make masks. Everywhere you look, the private sector has responded to the call by running towards the sound of gunfire, and as an American, I couldn't be prouder. The American eagle, she has sharp claws, and in times of need, we break out the file.

America, Don't Ever Change

So, sports broadcaster Joe Buck offered to provide a play-by-play commentary to videos people would send him. Seems like a fun thing to do to alleviate boredom during lock down, doesn't it? Well, you'll never guess what happened.

A) People asked him if Tony Romo was doing the same thing
B) Nobody Responded
C) He got in trouble for using tapes with implied oral consent and not express written consent

And the winner is.....

Yeah, like that's a surprise.

Sad News

Daughter, grandson of ex-Maryland Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend missing on Chesapeake Bay

It was windy here yesterday, the bay would have been choppy as hell, not a good place to be in a canoe unless you really know what you're doing. Two things:
