I don't survive pay sites. You'd think they'd drop the f*cking wall during a National Emergency.

Whatever. ProJo sucks anyway.

That's what happens when you touch the strippers.

Doctors at both places decided his symptoms did not qualify him for the coronavirus test

Better than not being sponge worthy, I guess.

"It's alarming when I hear people minimize it as a simple cold," he said. "It almost killed me."

YEAH, Kendall Jenner.

Don't know if it's true everywhere but for my local paper any articles that provide useful information about the virus are free to all.

A human interest story related to the virus maybe doesn't qualify, idk

Is it that hard to survive Rhode Island?  And are corona virus talks like TED talks?

keep your superstitious nonsense away from me and send in a stripper, a much better sight than some crusty old man as I slip these earthly coils

Sorry gang but unfortunately, I'm afraid that injecting ourselves with dead internet memes won't protect us from this virus.

Well, people should NOT minimize the risk but the fact does remain that the majority of cases are mild.  It all depends on how it was presented and I will not insult my brain cells by looking up anything Kendall Jenner posted.

/Yet I read threads here.  Hmmm.

Projo recently decided to make content related to covid-19 free to the public. This article was published just before that decision, but I think they are changing the settings. I couldn't view it earlier, but I can now.

They've also been hemorrhaging staff, and are mostly administered these days by the Boston Globe. It's kind of remarkable that they've even got enough staff to get things up on their website.

I use outline.com for one-offs. I don't mind watching ads but wish that someone would come up with a paysite that would covers multiple sites for occasional articles from various sites. I don't feel getting a monthly subscription for something that I would only use a couple of times a week.
