#7213: Just taking it easy

Sunday I put the lawn mower back together. Yesterday I tested it.

It won't let me pull it backwards. I think the drive belt is too short. I'll have to swap in the original belt to see if that makes a difference.

Anyway I was able to get the front and sides cut in sweltering heat, so it's fine.

Today's big task was to wash dishes and make chili, both of which I accomplished handily.

As ever more cases of COVID-19 are found via testing, the death rate continues to decrease. There's a graph there showing the number of deaths per week over time. This isn't a percentage; it's a raw number. X many people died last week; Y many people died this week.

The number of deaths is declining even as the number of cases goes up.

Of course, this is a bad thing because it means this stupid crap is coming to an end.

"Fewer people are dying, but it's not a good thing!" Yeah, because the election's coming, we know.

They're desperately trying to gin up a second lockdown, because the first one didn't work. I don't think people will go along with this one. See above, "rioters & looters".

"Who is Mary Trump?" The President's niece. "Mary Trump...does not know and has barely ever spoken to her uncle." Of course that doesn't matter; what matters is that her last name is "Trump" and she's related to the President and so that is supposed to lend legitimacy to her long-distance psychoanalysis of him.

Please note that if this book said the opposite about the President from what it tries to say--an attempt to help him, rather than to harm him--this wouldn't be news at all. THe media would be ignoring it.

A guy killed a 96-year-old woman with a pitchfork. No word on whether or not it was one of those evil black semiautomatic pitchforks with a shoulder thing that goes up.

USA Today tells the Democrat to wreck the economy in order to be rid of Trump.

Never forget what the Democrats want for you: "They want you dead, and if not, at least broke, hungry, sick and homeless."

This is your dear leader, denizens of CHAZ/CHOP/WTF-Ever. A whiny little crybaby bitch.

Anyway, that's all I'm going to do today. A few links, a few words. I'm in full-on summer mode. I think I played WoW a little bit over the weekend but not very much, and haven't since whatever day that was. (Monday, I think.)

Oh well!

    Had another opportunity today to play Pat Metheney's "Spring Ain't Here", because it snowed for most of the morning. But yeah, "global warming"…

    Some fatuous pinhead on the radio said that Chicago was ready for "looting and other forms of protest". But you know what? It's fine. We no longer…

    See, the tacos I make at home blow away any tacos I've ever had anywhere else. Lettuce used to be necessary, but now it just gets in the way, so I…
