1. All of this stuff–this self-isolation, this quarantine, this social distancing, this confinement; all the lock-downs, ups; all the virtual meetings, the telecommuting, the face-timing- all of this eau gazeuse dispensed from the candy-cane headquarters of advanced capitalism with Archie behind the soda fountain and Jughead in the shipping room, are being manipulated as distractions, as spectacles to deflect from the failure of these bozo-stock boys to organize and execute the fundamental requirement for any program to get a grip on an outbreak of a new disease– testing, testing, and more testing. Without the testing, nobody knows what’s working and what isn’t. Without the testing, nobody knows how acute or gradual the curve is; nobody knows the peak, the upside, the downside, or most importantly, the area under the curve.
