An On-Line Publication of the Anonymous Anything Society
Once upon a time I read that one can prove
anything by the use of statistics. Sunday programs and the Sunday
morning press (printed and electronic) are full of numbers, many of which
are offered by officeholders and other public servants, such as heads of
health departments. I'm going to ignore the writers of things dealing
with sports and see what stats will evolve in a sampling provided by
politicians, healers and a cross section of readers of things that make
their way into the public domain.
First this revelation: I was an iron-bound member of the
Republican party for 73 years. (Until 2016) I crossed the straight party
"ticket" line once or thrice in all those years. I'm literally scared
to death that COVID-19 may punish me for that loyalty.
I now push my opinions each week on owners of 70
different e-mails, two of whom repost my "blatherings" (a word derived
from a Scottish Gaelic dialect spoken by Appalachian coal-miners
of my youth, that means just what you fear it does).
I have no idea how many people read this blog, but this past
week I harvested 44 responses from readers, about half of whom reside in
Pima County, Arizona. Something like eight percent of them are apt to
infect us, if they have not done so already.
Conclusions: According to the highest public official on
earth (Donald J Trump), he is a Stable Genius whom God has blessed with a
miraculous cure. The throngs who attend his Super-Infection gatherings have
to wish that one of these days, the present plague is just going to
wither-away -- as our President so predicts. Or, maybe it will not.
