    US ranked #1 to best deal with a disease outbreak

    I was looking around for more information about the cause of test shortages, and ran across this article that hinted at an improvement in the availability of Covid-19 tests. Read down to "more tests coming" https://www.webmd.com/lung/news/20200330/covid19-testing-hits-second-wall-lack-of-supplies

    Why Bernie is not dropping out

    Well - maybe the DNC will actually do something smart, and convince Cuomo to take a stab at it.

    There’s a Memo, Because of Course There Is

    I don't think I understand what you meant by the bolded part. Can you explain?

    I'd suggest instead that it's a tragedy. A lesser tragedy than 200K deaths, but still a tragedy.

    I don't see how a death toll that large could EVER be seen as a "win", and the thought of anyone thinking that makes me a bit sick to my stomach.

    Nope - my perspective is based upon my time spent wearing the uniform between 1983 and 2012. I think that things changed drastically after you left the service, and that given the period of your service, I better understand your hesitance to accept my description. I'm not at all suggesting that the individuals in the military don't get stuff wrong, and said as much. We are in agreement w/r/t appropriate public disclosure - but, I DO reject the notion that handling issues in house equates to "cover ups". I appreciate your perspective, but, don't think that we're going to be able to come to agreement.

    Prine Experiences His Song??

    I don't recall who made the observation that John Prine was this generation's Mark Twain - but, I think they were right. I'll miss his songs.

    If you mean me, then you are categorically wrong. I’m not the only guy who knows what I know, not by a long shot. Try reading - ya might find reason to expand your perspective. Guy, I wrote, and meant, "the other guy in every discussion." Note your last sentence that assumes my perspective is limited by limited reading or inexperience. I wouldn't want to get in a trivia contest with a 30 yr vet but I have served, I'm from a military family, and I live in an area with big bases on 3 sides and the local news covers, you know, local news. But according to you, I'm categorically wrong. Get real.  Here's your comment to Mid: You are passing judgement without making the effort to inform yourself. I don’t think I can help you. See the point? Someone upthread said that folks were either career guys or troublemakers. Interesting take. And fits the literature if not Guy's narrative. Speaking of troublemakers, I was surprised that you'd drive a 10 hour round trip for 5 minutes of kicking big mouth AJ's ass. Then, I realized I could share gas and driving to insure his ass got kicked, if needed. We could pick up Clean along the way. AJ wanted a go with him recently. AJ is the new Jack only he's on the "right" side for this board.  Bottom line really is that our experience forms our opinions. That is all. If you were in the military, then I apologize for thinking you uninformed. I have to ask, though, if you were in, *when* were you in? As the perspective you hold of self-policing seems to be completely out of line with my experiences.

    Improbable

    If ya don't mind my asking, how are you doing that? 3D printing a male mold and then laying up the CF?

    Withheld from who? Do you think that YOU are the only appropriate arbiter of wrong and right? I’m not bustin your stones, but I think that you do lack an understanding of the accountability standards that the military holds itself to. if you think I’m missing something you intend, then spell it out - I don’t intend that anyone accept what I say simply because I said it - but I won’t afford consideration to anyone who’d discount what I say just because I said it either.
