    In my vein of trying to find up-sides. . .

    Maybe that will fix or help with our Social Security problem? :)

    Morgue humor I get and fully understand. As a 20 year veteran of the NYPD I am a past master at it.

    But this guy is not being funny. Not at all.

    All of these projections just like global warming are if we did nothing. They are unrealistic fictional worst case scenarios used to scare the population. Lots of measures are obviously being done.

    Sean, I know sadly.
    I see so many officers and firefighters with untreated PTSD.
    Best to you. The humor helps.
    We are buried in bodies.

    Actually, 240,000 deaths was the upper end of the best case scenario that was presented the past day or two.

    OK... go black for a moment... (no need to answer a single thing here... but points to ponder and I hope someone in power... is)

    How many body bags will be needed?
    Refrig trucks?
    Crematoriums ready and what max output is available daily?
    Crews to man all of the above distribution and ... sigh... collection?

    Or just business as usual?

    What did the Gates/Hopkins Event 201 thing conclude?

    Again, rhetorical... but do ponder and maybe research?

    300,000 die from obesity per year. Of course that is self-inflicted.

    I'm hoping this peters out soon as right now it is really ramping up in my area.

    If 240,000 die someone is going to have to pay. 3,000 died on 9/11 and the US went to war with Iraq among others.
