Every thing that creepeth upon the earth: We make our first appearance

 
Australian fires. African locusts. Worldwide plague. Do we live in Biblical times or what? If the world really is ending, we thought it was time to prepare properly for Armageddon. By, you know, reading the damn thing. The Bible, that is. (Go back to the beginning here.)

Is the pandemic right out of the Bible? Maybe we ought to, you know, read this thing

 
Australian fires. African locusts. Worldwide plague. Do we live in Biblical times or what? And with preachers from one end of the globe to the other squawking that the coronavirus is right out of the Bible and that we should all be preparing for the end of the world, and with many of us bored out of our minds sitting at home with the kids out of school and even a trip to the corner grocery feeling like the Apocalypse, we thought it was time to prepare properly for Armageddon.

[Regarding this article: Texas Lt. Gov.: Grandparents would be willing to die to save the economy]

Will it take Italy’s disaster before Americans stop blaming the media for coronavirus?

 
Attorney Scott Pilutik wrestles with the news of the day, from a lawyerly perspective…

I’m seeing a lot of people whining about media overreaction, evidently believing that this is an overblown overreaction to a bad strain of flu. Well, I’ve read a lot of stuff and can do math and these takes, which the president himself has been floating, are dangerously ignorant. Dr. Drew Pinsky is not a legitimate health official.

At what point does not testing for a known pandemic amount to gross negligence?

 
Attorney Scott Pilutik wrestles with the news of the day, from a lawyerly perspective…

As of March 8, the CDC had only administered 1,707 coronavirus tests, that low figure rationalized by the idea that containment is still possible — simply test and isolate only those who had traveled between China or had been exposed to someone verified to have contracted the virus.
