The official news about the coronavirus coming out of China is not pretty. Less, than 77,000 total cases being reported as of this writing, and the increase fairly well flattening out. The one thing we can be sure of is that the Chinese government lies even more than does our own. I figured that they were downplaying the problem by a factor of maybe 10 or 12. I am deeply grieved to report that I was a raging Pollyanna. For my next act I will become a raging alcoholic Joe Btfsplk.
Time to hit those prayer bones, people. Hard, till you crack the floorboards.
