On the upside, I guess, we're living through a memorable period of history. Future economics textbooks will include figures (full chart here) like this, and we can tell our grandkids how it was back in the wild COVID times:

Once this passes, the jobs numbers ought to recover a lot faster than after the last recession. But for now: yikes!

And this is why Dan Acheson is DCI Executive Dir and not you or me, and corps representatives voting membership makes the decisions about the season, and not you or me. They've been doing this fo

Contracted for my third season of World Class, pretty much everyone I have talked to wishes for the cancellation of the season.  I am fine with reevaluating another week or so, but they need to act.

I see Florida's governor just announced that visitors from New York and New Jersey must self-quarantine for two weeks.

That's rather like the travel policies in China described by JustEnjoyIt above, and possibly the right call.

Although the virus is probably well established in Florida's population at this point.

Forcing people from New York and New Jersey to self quarantine is probably against interstate travel laws, but it would be a long time before it could be challenged in court. We also can’t forget the great job he did with the Spring Breakers not too long ago.

That said, has anyone else started to see comments suggesting that it's not worthwhile to take these extraordinary measures that hurt our economy just to save the lives of a few million older people?

 

Honestly - No. I have not read any such comments.   I have a 25 year old daughter putting her own personal health at risk for the sake of a few “older people”.

When the "Cadets 2020" thread gets bumped to the second page of DCI World Class Corps Discussions, Mr. Acheson, it's time.

God Bless her.  She’s doing noble work.

But, they do walk amongst us.  I’ve seen Boomer Remover a few times on social media.

I didn’t see it.  I watched a puppy show on Animal Planet at 7. 

Set the dvd for midnight.

Ooops, I thought this was maybe a thread talking about requiring all DCI corps to consistently enforce the same set of safety rules, along with hiring and firing practices for "faculty".  

The same part of me that uses reason as a basis for thinking assumed the season would have already been canceled.  Silly me.

I was honestly watching a puppy show.  There were corgi puppies.  SO adorable. 

Have watched a fair amount of “Too Cute” lately.
