  1. City of Pittsburgh followed suit as other major cities and cancelled the St. Patrick's Day parade.
  2. I know this isn't the political thread so I won't comment other than to say this has been a problem in the US for a couple of years now.
  3. I absolutely agree with you but it makes sense to get the tests to as many hospitals, urgent care clinics and doctor's offices as possible. Every infected person that you can catch and self-quarantine away for a couple of weeks would be help limit the exposure to the rest of the country and every data point would be helpful in learning more about the virus and identifying hot spots. I admit I am not this administration's biggest fan but I don't think it is asking too much to get as many tests in as many hands as fast as possible.
  4. If you have a fever it better be something with more cowbell.
  5. Steelers officially get 3rd round compensatory pick for LeVeon Bell. Also, Steelers will be facing the Dallas Cowboys in the HoF game on Thursday August 6. I am seriously thinking of taking a road trip for that...
  6. Pittsburgh's St. Patrick's Day parade draws about 250-300k people if the weather is good. Just heard on the radio that it is a full go for Saturday.
  7. I don't think there is panic but there is a higher level of concern over Coronavirus because of the unknown factor. Ultimately it may or may not turn out to be as deadly as the flu but we don't know that at this point and that is why it is getting the reaction it is getting. I do think some of it is an overreaction but sometimes it is better to err on the side of caution. Not everything in this world revolves around Trump although he sure seems to think that it does.
  8. What a surprise: the president is making himself a victim again and it is the big bad media's fault. What a XXXX!
  9. I am just reiterating what I heard from two scientists that know a whole lot more about this than I do. Take it or leave it as you see fit.
  10. Yes this does nothing for the pandemic and not sure it does much to ease fears on wall street or consumers. Seems like an odd response to the crisis but what do I know?
  11. I was listening to Sirius XM which has a station dedicated to the pandemic 24/7. Yesterday they had two virologists that disagree pretty strongly with you. They both said that when all is said and done the likely fatality numbers will be sub 1%. Now don't hate on me, that is what they were saying and they seemed to know what they were talking about.
  12. I have a close friend that was a huge Tea Party guy. When Obama was in office all he ever talked about was the importance of a balanced budget and getting the deficit under control. Now he is Trump guy and he doesn't care about deficit spending anymore. I can understand why he voted for Trump the first time: he hated Hillary and Trump was making promises that he would balance the budget. But after 3 years of deficits under Trump you would think my buddy would be outraged with the president - nope, deficits are not a big deal anymore. Mind blowing
  13. well it IS a hoax dreamed up by the Deep State and Fake News Media to make Trump look bad.
  14. The city of Pittsburgh has a huge St. Patrick's day parade. So far there are no known cases in the area but I wonder if they will cancel if that changes in the next few days.
  15. I am 61. Well stocked on supplies. If I get word to work from home I am fine with that!
  16. Lots of great songs to choose from but the one that instantly came to me was the studio version of Maybe I'm Amazed. Written, produced, sung and every instrument played by one man.
  17. Typical Trump tweets. What a great leader we have.
  18. The book was okay. I enjoyed it but not as much as most Stephen King books. The TV show: a big meh. It started out strong but quickly ran out of gas. None of the changes from the book were an improvement IMO.
  19. All that needs to happen is to have one player on one team become exposed to the virus. That would quarantine that team for at least a couple of weeks. Then it happens to another team a week or so later. It would absolutely wreak havoc on the schedule.
  20. No offseason buzz thus far. Dionte had a nice rookie season with sub-par QB play. If Ben comes back from his injury I think Johnson has a good chance to have a breakout season.
  21. I think acceptance by all that matter that there is such a thing as climate change and man's actions do make an impact would be a great first step.
  22. Will the people that recover from this need the vaccine?
  23. Not sure about Biden but Trump had done nothing in his promise to replace Obamacare with "something terrific". Anyone counting his 2016 campaign promises have to give him a zero on that one.
  24. I think the federal government should forgive everyone owing income tax this year so we can use the money to buy TP
