re: Is Coronavirus Spreading Faster in African American Communities? - Pettifogger
[quote]I think he's talking about Albany, Ga. They've had a large outbreak tied to a majority African-American church there. [/quote] correct I actually don't know if the victims there are black, but I assume so. They've had like 35 deaths in a 90,000 person county....

re: Is Coronavirus Spreading Faster in African American Communities? - Pettifogger
By way of anecdote, I've got some extended family that would be very ripe for COVID problems. Generally unhealthy, bigger, less sanitary, not proactive about medical treatment, multi-generations living on top of each other...all of it. The difference is they basically live in the middle of nowhe...

The reality is that dense AA communities are: -Probably among the most likely to have untreated or poorly treated conditions that are relevant to bad outcomes - diabetes, obesity, etc. -Probably the least likely to strictly follow public health guidelines, and in some cases, probably cannot do...

re: How do Falcons fans feel about the Gleason blocked punt? - Pettifogger
The game itself is memorable for us because it was just a fawn-fest for the Saints and everything went the Saints' way. Not that we don't understand why it was like that, but as I'm sure even Saints fans can appreciate, it very much felt like a no-win, almost preorchestrated situation for the Fa...

re: ISO new watch for $350 max... - Pettifogger
Citizen/Seiko/Tissot are all nice quartz watches that will do the job and last a while. I'm not a fan of the lower priced "nice" watches like Hamilton/Movado/etc. If it were me, my choice under 500 bucks would always be an Apple Watch, but I realize that may not be what you're after....

re: IHMA HealthData Projections Plummet for Louisiana COVID-19 Cases and Deaths - Pettifogger
[quote]There is no sense in arguing with him. He is going to die on the hill with the UW model no matter what. All I know is this. The UW model projected an upper range of deaths for AL of about 9,500 by end of April. That is like 1 in every 500 state residents dead. Any reasonable scientist or mode...

re: Where do you stand? Open it back up? Or keep it shut down? - Pettifogger
And the poor decisions of some will delay this for all of us. If you pack the bars for Cinco De Mayo, you're going to drive "normal" people away from resuming normal activities. What short-term gains are made from an initial burst of economic activity are going to be lost if middle class familie...

re: Where do you stand? Open it back up? Or keep it shut down? - Pettifogger
As much as it sucks for those of us tired of WFH, I think it'll be key for large companies and others that are well equipped to do WFH to allow that to continue for months. ...

[quote]NOLA is already into the downslope. [/quote] Yeah but NOLA is exactly the type of place that could get immediately overburdened again if things are opened up too soon. No offense, but it's not somewhere that I think will govern itself very well. I'm not advocating for more government ov...

re: Where do you stand? Open it back up? Or keep it shut down? - Pettifogger
[quote]Will it though? [/quote] Not sure what you mean there I think there will be a point where public fear can take the place of some of the governmental measures. I don't think everyone's going to go hop on a plane, and I assume plenty of sports are going to continue delaying or put some ...

re: IHMA HealthData Projections Plummet for Louisiana COVID-19 Cases and Deaths - Pettifogger
[quote](1) This new model run looks awesome for Louisiana/New Orleans. Even better news that it'll be pretty easy to see if we in line with the predicted decline in the coming weeks. Hopefully this isn't that stray GFS run where the track moves 200 miles to the east for some reason just to bounce ba...
