Fun Fact

While the average religious leader can expect one retweet for every 500 followers, the average musician only sees one retweet for every 30,000 followers.

Dissenting (lonely?) view on coronavirus. Numbers do not support a pandemic verdict. Large expansion of US or world cases unlikely. Fear overreaction will cause countless dislocations of its own. Criticisms always welcome https://t.co/ou1PvF7rpY

"Preparation was our first chance. When that failed, a national strategy was our next option… If all we have left are miracle cures, that’s a nation that needs to look at itself in the mirror." β€”@ASlavitt https://t.co/X40uPFN0mb

When we can make the journey from the Greatest Generation to the Kindest Generation, the virus won't stand a chance. /end

Does the 80 years that passed change our country so much that we can't get back to that. To the simplest thing in the world. Caring about everyone who dies whether we know them or not. It feels hard because its new and it feels easy because we all know how. 21/

People will respond better to being asked to sew masks than to wear them. But Beshear believes we all have that decency in us. We are still the country that sent young people to Normandy where we lost 6600 on a single day. 20/

Its a choice we will not find on Twitter or Facebook or in most of the political rhetoric. It will come in the active doing. Beshear said something else: "Its harder to ask people to do nothing than to do something." 19/

That version has people yelling herd immunity or turning our backs or justifying suffering for others but not inconvenience for ourselves. But the other choice is the easiest in the world. 18/

Like the bedtime stories we've all read to our kids, there are always 2 choices: in this case, the indifferent path where we let 200,000 become 300,000 or more & grow angry & resentful that it is robbing us of some of our life. 17/

In fact, we cannot possibly win without kindness. (Yes we may be trapped in a bible story or an Aesop fable where after years of neglecting people who have been at risk, we now have to SEE them & care about them.) 16/

Beshear says this our great generational challenge. Ask him what the key is to winning the war on the pandemic and he has an answer. "We have to become the kindest generation," he hold me. 15/

Beshear is one of the 2 highest rated governors when it comes to their COVID-19 response. He governs a state where he is in the minority party in a state relatively unhealthy. Given all of that results have been mercifully good so far w/ about 1000 deaths. 14/

But if many people already feel safe, as we discussed above, why would they wear a mask? I had this conversation with KY governor @AndyBeshearKY today. 13/

A mask of course does 2 things. It protects the people in your vicinity and you from the virus. And, if we all do it, it reduces the spread and gets us back to normal more quickly. 12/

So I promised you a "key" to not making that 200,000 become 300,000 or 400,000. You expect me to say a mask. And that's the funny part to me. Everybody at this point knows what we need to do. Apparently its not that simple.11/

The whole way we look at the pandemic and its relationship to ourselves was one of the most fascinating parts of my conversation with @edyong209 here. https://t.co/D0qPN6X7tP. If you don't read Ed religiously in @TheAtlantic too, you simply need to. But listen if you haven't.10/

We like being out of the disease chain. Its as if its not happening. And we are apparently ok being in the middle of the disease chain, passing it to others if we don't worry about being harmed ourselves. 9/

COVID disproportionately impacts people who can't escape it-- farmworkers, prisoners, homeless, Black/Brown communities at a higher rate, immunocompromised groups. And so, if you don't happen to be in one of those groups you feel safer. 8/
