#1 I saw a medical sort on the Iranian news coughing many times and at first not covering his mouth. He appeared on another televised program doing the same thing. This will be repeated over and over and the numbers of infected will explode. He indicated he had the contagion(test results) later on the show he was being interviewed for. The person doing the interview was unprotected.

#5 Don't you love how many significant figures they quote ("as high as 18,300 people") for WAG guesses?

#6 ^ Always, and I'm not even a geek. Say, if you're the james who sometimes posts a blog link, thanks for that. Never visit without being tricked into thinking, and the leisurely, low-key vibe really appeals. Reminds me of... dunno... dropping by for coffee after-hours with a flunkie in a Really Important Lab, back in the days before access cards and omnipresent video and all that crap, and learning all kinds of interesting things without having to feel (very) stupid.

#9 Thank you for the kind words. That's pretty much the climate I aim for. And there are so many interesting things in the world...

#10  kind words

Kinder if I hadn't implicitly called you a flunky, which word I intended to apply solely to low-ambition friends of my low-ambition past, back before I [swell of laughter] set the world on fire.

And there are so many interesting things in the world...

That's so much like something my mom would say that, reading it, I heard its echo in her voice. No wonder I like your stuff. Thanks again.
