If he is Dr Sugarcoat, does that make you Massively Mystified Mike?

Are you really trying to compare something said on the 1st of April about a new virus that acts in ways we don't fully understand to something being said today?? Over 90 days later? In what world does that make sens…

Harder than a simple "pay more money" strategy.

Many of the organizations already do loan repayment, and use the heck out of that to recruit. The max the federal system lets them sign up for is a 3 year stint, with up to $50k paid directly to loans a year for a total of $150k over t…

You've illustrated my point about holding on to a past data point and ramming it home. Each of your date references say "March" and not "April". It totally matters what our public health officer says, in the moment he says it. I'd have to assume that public releases of information or medi…

There is a penchant for looking to, and locking perspective on, past comments made by anyone involved at the county regarding covid. This thing moves fluidly: what Dr D stated on the 20th isn't intended to be in perpetuity the truth no matter how much you want it to be. Note that on the 2…
