When I want to be lied to by a clown I’ll watch a McDonald’s commercial, thanks.

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Columbus-based Battelle’s system that can decontaminate thousands of masks a day, according to a statement from the company.
Battelle on Sunday night said that the approval is for the use of the technology at “full capacity.”

Good news, Ward. Thank you.

But it is pretty funny your posting this immediately after complaining about the lack of source in mine.
My source was identified and its info quoted directly.

Since you can’t differentiate between identifying a source (you didn’t) and providing a location (you did), there is no reason to think you know anything about anything you try to express in a post.

Not knowing what most words mean does give reasonable explanation about how you can claim to believe much of the bullshit you post. Language acquisition during extreme old age and decrepitude is especially hard, but you should still try because knowing what words are and what they mean is the foundation of clear thinking. You could really use some clear thinking about now.

Kid is a sad echo of the fascist wank machine.

He provides a glimpse of the thoughts of people obviously too vile to converse with.

He’s also illustrative of how a miseducated individual can be taken by chumps.

He’s the third or fourth SF, depending on how you see Edwards. I’d say Edwards is a SG so Bey is third behind Deni and the kid from Auburn based on Hype.

It depends on how much teams like guys like RJ Hampton and Ty Halliburton along with some of those 6’10” centers who seem to shoot & put it on the floor somewhat. Bey seems out of the lottery, but gone in the strata between that and our second pick.

Ball & Bey would be a pretty good round 1. If packing the LAC pick with the second rounder gets it done, is that good enough for an entire draft?

Trump has convinced most of the nation it is time to douse him in gasoline and strike a match. He’s really sealing the deal with his recent press appearances.

He’s not the type of grifter to stop campaigning to address a national crisis or one to grow even a vestige of a human heart.

Trump and republican governors are ensuring we get at least 20-30 million cases on the low end. 

Trump is running on incompetence, red ink, and body bags in 2020 as the face of the deadly and repulsive republican brand.

I'll try to tune in when I can.
As ridiculous as it sounds, I won't have a working proxy server that gets me to youtube until the new month starts.  China really starting killing my old free proxy server back in October, and I've used other half-ass proxies since then.  I really need to just pay for a more reliable proxy server.

The thing about Amare was he relentlessly put pressure on the rim.  He was going to go over or around folks and try to jam everything.  He was bouncy as hell.
Toppin looks thin in the legs and a little awkward in the still photos I've seen.
Also is 22.  And a poor defender.  If he is equal to John Collins, I'm interested.  But we don't need another bad defender really.

Haven't seen him yet ...

Here's another mock draft, this one from
Has medium length write-ups.
Never heard of the writer.

Thanks for the Mock, Bo.

It sounds like Saddiq Bey out of Nova should also be on the radar.

Edwards and Barrett at the wings wouldn’t be bad at all. Gives Frank some quality scorers to set up.

Between the uninsured, the undocumented, those who shun institutions, and those who avoid medical attention for financial reasons, we have a nation within the nation about twice as populous as Italy with no healthcare system within which the virus will incubate and evolve indefinitely and will likely be the source of secondary and tertiary outbreaks.

We are in a middle of a prime example of how having huge holes in your health care system (welcome to Hell, Dr. No) can be far more expensive than just covering everyone all the time. You have to point this out republicans because they can’t process arguments based in any way on valuing human life.

Bo, if you get the YouTube’s where you’re at, check out Toppin both cause Dayton was really fun this year and I’d like to hear how Toppin does for you vis-a-vis the eye test.

The article was nice to Ball. He has a nice package to build on and if he’s survived Dad, he can probably hand the weeble and wobble of Berman and Dolan and their influence on the life of the team.

I like Deni, Toppin, Okongwu as guys to plug right in. Deni to start as SF on day 1.

I hear beefs about Toppin’s D, some about reaction time (slow hips, high stance a la Amare) more or less offset by smarts and anticipation that lets him get on and off ball blocks and make spectacular passing lane plays. He’ll need to work on his lower body and stance a lot to reach his potential. The more concrete beef is that at 6’9” 220-225, he gets bullied by real size centers. I don’t see us asking him to do that unless he at some point packs on some weight to his core and thighs.

Offensively he’s kind of an Amare-Tatum hybrid on the college level. The guy plays with energy & feel and he gets buckets.

Okongwu is an advanced and mobile player for his size who just needs to get his 3 stroke on to be a solid long term starter. Unlike anyone on our team but Mitch he can rim protect. Unlike Mitch, he can score on the move from a bunch of spots letting him either give a different look at center or form a super defensive interior by playing him with Mitch.

In Deni you’re getting a Multitool SF.

Simply: the US Gov't failed to prepare and plan and protect.

Nothing we were to do in late January was stopping this thing.

Translation: we did essentially nothing in late January to try to stop this thing.

It's about how it's handled now.

Like a trump kiss up contest with governors as contestants and thousands of Americans’ lives on the line driven by federally created scarcities and confusion.

People are fucking dying.  It's sad as hell.  And disrupting.  And scary - in whatever way you get scared (little, lot or batshit nuts).  Many of those who get through it will need to keep talking, rehashing, etc.     Some will be total dicks.  Others will just move on.  And LIVE.
I’ve got you down for the third and fourth items from the end of your list as past is prologue.
Good night.

Thanks. Think better in the morning.
