"We can't lock ourselves at home and live our lives as hermits," Broecker said.

Speak for yourself. I've been doing exactly that since March 18.

Aside from walks around the neighborhood for exercise, and trips to the grocery store, I've been in my home, focused on some self-improvement projects and not letting the coronavirus use my body as an incubator.

If everyone had done this back in March, we most assuredly not have 150,000+ dead from COVID-19 today, and we'd probably already be embarking on safe reopenings for some businesses.

I especially like how he made a stab at quarantining, by quarantining for half the time he should have been, then getting bored and calling it good.

Fark you.

Because of assholes like this guy, I've locked at home and living my life as a hermit for months. And will be doing so for months, perhaps even a year, more.

All because assholes can't see beyond their own needs & wants, or can't get over their own YNTBOM syndrome, or just plain couldn't give a shiat and will do whatever the fark they want even if others sicken & die.

And this person is supposed to be an educated, intelligent leader? Are you farking kidding me?!

Most admin staff in academia are actively bad at their jobs, from the assholes at the top to the C-students at the bottom that make sure nobody gets paid until six weeks after they start.

This alone should tell us, we can't count on sending kids back to school at any level and still keeping young people safe, because there will always be a lowest common denominator in the faculty.

I've been doing it since the end  of January, when the president tried to stop people from China from coming to the US. (Biden called that "racist," IIRC). However, there was no way to prevent US citizens in China from returning home. The airlines didn't get the message and continued to jam people into planes like sardines in a can.

Purdue University, where Bush budget hatchet man and former Indiana governor Mitch Daniels found his post-politics home.

I actually thought he was far better as governor than a lot of others, he fought against the evangelicals and elevated biotech. He was a former CEO of Eli Lilly after all. He created the Healthy Indiana program that guaranteed low income families health care for kids if the families followed recommended things like vaccinations and regular checkups and taking meds as prescribed.

For all of that, though, he is still a business class Republican. Hiring someone with this mentality is right up his alley. When the ACA passed, he had a temper tantrum and ended Healthy Indiana. He's not going to stray far from what the investors want.

Don't forget that the horizontal part of that graph near the end isn't because # of cases actually magically stopped growing for no reason, but because the administration yoinked the reporting away from the CDC and is overseeing it themselves now.
