    I cope by listening to a lot of music. I find the band Deicide to be especially poignant at this time. I am also getting into the symphonies of Penderecki. Then of course the usual suspects such as the Allmans, Skynyrd, Motorhead, The Beatles, Pantera...

                Y'all may have the blues at a time like this, but that is no reason not to play them.

                  The States (9 deaths per million) just passed Iran (33 deaths per million) in total number of deaths. And it looks like they'll also pass France (46 deaths per million) by our sundown tonight.

                    The U.S. now has 50% more cases than Italy and the U.S. numbers are rising...
                    Perhaps it is (as Trump claims) because the US is doing a huge amount of testing.
                    I am no fan of Trump (FAR from it actually) but regardless, the number of cases is rising as one might predict
                    considering the lack of preparedness of the US and soon they will be overrun [my opinion].

                    They will need a big helping of luck.

                      I'm not sure what you are saying? Is the USA worse off than Italy? Is that it?

                        Yes. I believe they are in far worse danger than any other country.
                        Their health care system is not equipped to handle that kind of case load (indeed, few places are able to handle this).

                          Fortunately, with all this self-isolation/clampdown/working-from-home going on everywhere ...there will be a baby boom sometime in late 2020 - early 2021 :))))

                          HA!

                            I agree with Kerry. The USA health care system will soon be overwhelmed. It is starting now, first in New York City where they won't see the peak until 2 weeks. So it is getting very ugly very fast. But it will spread to other major cities in USA as well.

                            Their pain and suffering will easily eclipse that seen in Italy and China.

                              I suspect the divorce lawyers will be busy too.
