40 degree day: hamsack: Was there a story there? All I saw was a 3 sentence paragraph that ended with "probably"

It's an opinion piece. It starts with crediting Trump with the idea and IMO it's all downhill from there.


Oh, and treating opinions as fact is a good part of what got us into this mess.

ArkPanda: Convalescent plasma therapy was the winner of the very first Nobel Prize for Medicine, and was very valuable for the first half of the 20th century.

I don't think FDR went on the radio to say "Give me your blood!" though. Trump may need to work on his approach.


It has been tried with COVID-19, but most recovered people do not have very high antibody levels, so their plasma is useless.
