Saturday. Still February. Leap Day William is rising from the Mariana Trench.
Feburary 29th has been lucky for the Celtics. Fingers crossed for tonight.
Robin Wright describes how politics played a role in allowing the coronavirus to spread in Iran. The Ayatollah downplayed the virus and accused his enemies of exaggerating the threat ahead of an election. Hmmm. The Pope is sick. Hopefully it’s only a cold. One of the cruise ship passengers who caught the coronavirus wrote an article about how it feels to have it. Not so bad, it turns out. Here’s a short video that visually illustrates how the virus spreads between people. And the new cases on the west coast show that person to person transmission is already happening in the US. It’s probably going on in other places around the country as well. I’m guessing we’ll start seeing them pop up increasingly in the next few days and that next week’s market opening will be rough. But as the spread grows and the world doesn’t end things will normalize. But first, let’s get the testing problems fixed.
RIP, Freeman Dyson.
Sports betting is coming to Massachusetts. It was only a matter of time after the casinos opened. But it does seem that the legislature has taken a slow and thoughtful approach in writing the law.
And if you’re in the market for a new ‘around-town’ Harley, you’re in luck. It’s entry level at $13k. (I’d rather spend that on Leica gear.)
