Can't wait for the virus that dissolves people into horrible blob monsters that can lump together creating larger blob monsters and people start arguing over their right to become a horrible blob monster.

Move comes amid White House pressure on the global health organization to move quickly to reduce stigma around the virus' name.

To be fair, the disease didn't originate with monkeys, they just called it that because the first discovered animals with the virus happened to be monkeys.

we are down to just a few dozen reported cases.

Can we start sleeping with each other yet?

I'm not raging against a change in the name, or even this particular change, but I am going to say changing the name is dumb, especially this particular change.

Then I'll shrug and go about my day.

Every new DJ on a Tulsa radio station:  "Hey, do you remember Hanson, that one hit wonder from the 90s?  They're from here in Tulsa!"

Everyone in Tulsa: "We know!  And they're actually from Sand Springs.  They run a grocery store and a food bank, do Code For America, run and headline Tulsa Brewfest every year, have their own brewery, and routinely play stuff they've never put on albums at least once a month at a random bar.  They're good people!  Just don't pla..."

New DJ:  "Pretty wild, right?  Anyrate since you haven't heard from them in a while, here's Mmmbop!"

Tulsans: "God damn it."

I feel like I should know where Tay's Music is but it isn't registering with me.  The dance party scene is in the part of Greenwood that survived the Tulsa Race Massacre and you can clearly see the overpass that the MLK, Jr. Memorial Expressway runs on in the background.

I've heardthat it's likely going to be simmering around in the background for quite a while.

The dozens of cases you're talking about are ones that are noticeable enough be bringing people to their doctor or clinic to get checked out, or serious cases that land someone in the hospital.  Or ones that are being watched for, like household transmission from other confirmed cases.

Still leaves a bunch unaccounted for.
