Since I'm waiting for this root canal I thought I'd revisit the school thing . 1st we know 100 % virtual is mediocre at best if not total crap in some cases and Looks like more and more evidence in real world data is that the virus in the vast majority of school reopenings has not led to outbreaks or mass spreading events.  Study out of Florida since school has been back in person shows actually a decrease in cases among 5 - 17 year olds ( leading to believe transmission has mostly been from family gatherings and social gatherings outside school where people get more lax with there mitigation). Red Lion school district in Pa has been open for 5 weeks in person with just 5 cases in those 5 weeks . All 64 Archdiocese schools in Md have been open for weeks with only a scattered dozen or so cases out of 25,000 to 30,000 . Extremely low infection rates . You won't here about the 95% of overall successful school reopenings main stream media.They cherry pick the extreme rare cases showing a kid fell ill or teacher and what they  also don't tell you is the proof of where they actually contracted the virus because they must likely didn't get it at school. New York public schools opening in person Thursday. Another incredible stat I heard was out of 46,000 positive college student cases only 2 hospitalizations( and that's with the petry dish dorms ) The ground truth science  says it's an incredibly low risk for in person when you look Nationwide .  Carroll county is supposed to start hybrid October 19th ( 2 days in school) . I hope they follow through with it and not kick the can down the road again . It's a darn shame Maryland doesn't have 1 single public school at minimum in a hybrid yet . Nothing supports any real risk to staff and kids for at least hybrid and I'd argue for 100% all in . Additionally many classrooms will be smaller due to families choosing to go private, homeschool,  100% virtue etc. Another example...My oldest daughter's huge gymnastics facility at the YMCA in Hanover Pa has been open since Late May with 50 to 100 kids sweating every day in 1 area for months and I've heard of 1 case ( yes , only one). Kids imo need to get back asap for there academic/ Psychological/ physical well being.  The Science doesn't support the continued 100% stay at home . Just my opinion 

To me it looks like college is the best place for the virus to be.. instead we locked down.. confining our elderly population to be indoors while the virus slowly meandered its way though the to the population killing the immune compromised.  The longer we stayed in locked down, the higher the chance that we have a second wave... as long as schools are closed, the more at risk people die.

Is this now the crackpot rant thread?

Not sure ...but I think my dentist was smoking a crackpipe while doing my root canal.  He messed up and said I need a "retreatment" which is code for he effed up and he said I have to pay again . If I did business like that I'd be out  of business in a week lol.

my dentist

I hope he isn't the one on Main St in Hampstead.  I know that guy fairly well and would hope that he is a good dentist.

Alot different from the 80's and 90's.

In 85 and 89 the redskins went 10 - 6 and missed the playoffs finishing in 3rd place.

Philly went 10- 6 in 91 and missed the playoffs.

There was a 20 year stretch when it really was the NFC east beasts but that was a long time ago.
