Reports are DCI will likely not survive in the same form if at all. The regional circuits are gone and the private sponsor shows are few if any. A committee has been formed to map various conting

If "normal" means "continuing to be encouraged by the CDC to wear masks and practice social distancing," then I agree completely. These guidelines were just published today: https://www.cdc.gov/c

Unfortunately, my gut feeling tells me you may be correct.  Unless school districts decide to allow for outside groups (Corps) to use their facilities during the off-season (camps) and during the summ

I hope so.
But, as they say in Texas ‘You  can hope in one hand &  spit in the other & see which one fills up first.  
I suppose as well that ‘normal’ requires definition - I define normal as like we were in January 2020   

After /911, we said people would never fly again. Now we take our shoes off and go through a scanner and get on airplanes by the millions.
The human race is very resilient, we adapt like no other species. We will adapt and move forward. And the news media will go back to their normal jobs of having to sell ads without a panic attack.

My parents lived through the polio pandemic, we had a president who is in a wheelchair paralyzed because of it. Parents would not let their kids swim in public swimming pools, or drink out of water fountains. And this was when there was a realistic chance of getting polio, and being paralyzed for life or dying within months.This was decades before the advancements we have in medical science today. We got a vaccine, everyone took it and still takes it today, and no one even thinks about polio anymore.

People die from all sorts of things, including one of the many strains of influenza that spread all over the world every spring. We could manufacture vaccines for all of the flu viruses every year, and all mutations, but the cost would be in the trillions and therefore doing so would be financially infeasible.

We accept that people will get sick and some will die. That is life. Always has been and always will be. The fact is the vast majority, over 98%, of people who contract Covid 19 recover fine and most don’t even know they contracted it.

The unique aspect of this virus is it is three times more contagious than the flu and it takes three times longer to recover: 3 weeks vs 1. This is likely due to the fact that the human race has no immunity to this particular strain. So if you have diabetes, heart disease and/or are obese, it is far more likely you will develop double pneumonia—which is what almost all fatalities result from.

The unique aspect of this virus is that its killing 40k Americans each month. The fact that we can rationalize that into some sort of normalcy is disappointing.

40,000 Americans are not dying from this each month.

What's an extra zero and a little exaggeration when you're trying to make a point?

Math is hard, mistakes are easy, accuracy is optional.  Heh.

Wow trying to lessen this tragedy by arguing over numbers and making jokes about it.

Think I’m stepping away from dcp for a while. Only difference between what is going on now and death of my wife is she caught the regular flu and not coronavirus

That’s not exactly how I’ve heard it. But close enough. 🙂

I’m not arguing about numbers, I’m stating them.
