I think they managed to misspell their own band name #trait RT @TRAPTOFFICIAL: Problem solved. I now can ban every libertarian asshole who supports Jojoke on the trait Fb page... @Jorgensen4POTUS I still think you should have a talk with your supporters and tell them that harassing people in your name is a BAD look... Doesn’t reflect well on you

Well, call me subtle and bring on the stubble. Here's a before be continued. I just couldn't do it. Yet. I'm also trying to figure who I'm trying to look like NOW. I'm pleased so far with the parts of my face I've exposed, so there's that. Besides I'm now sure I could always be Rick Rubin by Christmas. Finally, I don't recommend you wear a black T when you shave off white hairs...
2.7 19:01 JUST IN: I will be putting on LIVE RADIO on the freshest of air (that is, KFAI) THIS Saturday, the 4th of July, from 3 to 5 PM CDT! I would LOVE to play YOUR request (so long as it suitable for air)! If you request it NOW, I will be WAY more likely to have it Saturday than if you call it in THEN! Offbeat, unusual, selections one usually does not hear on the radio will be greatly welcomed - although I can't speak for our listening audience, definitely by me! So GIMME BOTH BARRELS and then I hope you'll tune in to 90.3 or stream from KFAI dot org! Don't make me use any more exclamation points!

Are you passionate about racial justice + amplifying community voices? Do you have a strong connection to South Minneapolis? Do view the radio as a tool for healing + liberation? Then we want to hear from you!!!

#tbt I heard you liked photos of me well here's a photo of me. What did I say about this five years ago?

"Another fine all yellow ensemble for #tbt, but this time not with a banana, but rather with a legal pad AND a box of Wheat Thins AND someone found a coat hanger for good measure. Peak yellow. Peak Zimmerman.

This looks to be in the political library at UCR which can only mean it was during our big Model UN weekend. (I actually know this because I found this photo in a big stack of OTHER Model UN photos, another of which you'll see on another Thursday...)"

(c. I have no idea - let's say "spring time, early 1990s")

Chicken pox is a virus. Lots of people have had it, and probably don't think about it much once the initial illness has passed. But it stays in your body and lives there forever, and maybe when you're older, you have debilitatingly painful outbreaks of shingles. You don't just get over this virus in a few weeks, never to have another health effect. We know this because it's been around for years, and has been studied medically for years.

Herpes is also a virus. And once someone has it, it stays in your body and lives there forever, and anytime they get a little run down or stressed-out they're going to have an outbreak. Maybe every time you have a big event coming up (school pictures, job interview, big date) you're going to get a cold sore. For the rest of your life. You don't just get over it in a few weeks. We know this because it's been around for years, and been studied medically for years.

HIV is a virus. It attacks the immune system, and makes the carrier far more vulnerable to other illnesses. It has a list of symptoms and negative health impacts that goes on and on. It was decades before viable treatments were developed that allowed people to live with a reasonable quality of life. Once you have it, it lives in your body forever and there is no cure. Over time, that takes a toll on the body, putting people living with HIV at greater risk for health conditions such as cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, diabetes, bone disease, liver disease, cognitive disorders, and some types of cancer. We know this because it has been around for years, and had been studied medically for years.

Now with COVID-19, we have a novel virus that spreads rapidly and easily. The full spectrum of symptoms and health effects is only just beginning to be cataloged, much less understood.
So far the symptoms may include:
Acute respiratory distress
Lung damage (potentially permanent)
Loss of taste (a neurological symptom)
Sore throat
Difficulty breathing
Mental confusion
Nausea or vomiting
Loss of appetite
Strokes have also been reported in some people who have COVID-19 (even in the relatively young)
Swollen eyes
Blood clots
Liver damage
Kidney damage
COVID toes (weird, right?)

People testing positive for COVID-19 have been documented to be sick even after 60 days. Many people are sick for weeks, get better, and then experience a rapid and sudden flare up and get sick all over again. A man in Seattle was hospitalized for 62 days, and while well enough to be released, still has a long road of recovery ahead of him. Not to mention a $1.1 million medical bill.

Then there is MIS-C. Multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children is a condition where different body parts can become inflamed, including the heart, lungs, kidneys, brain, skin, eyes, or gastrointestinal organs. Children with MIS-C may have a fever and various symptoms, including abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, neck pain, rash, bloodshot eyes, or feeling extra tired. While rare, it has caused deaths.

This disease has not been around for years. It has basically been 6 months. No one knows yet the long-term health effects, or how it may present itself years down the road for people who have been exposed. We literally *do not know* what we do not know.

For those in our society who suggest that people being cautious are cowards, for people who refuse to take even the simplest of precautions to protect themselves and those around them, I want to ask, without hyperbole and in all sincerity:
How dare you?

How dare you risk the lives of others so cavalierly. How dare you decide for others that they should welcome exposure as "getting it over with", when literally no one knows who will be the lucky "mild symptoms" case, and who may fall ill and die. Because while we know that some people are more susceptible to suffering a more serious case, we also know that 20 and 30 year olds have died, marathon runners and fitness nuts have died, children and infants have died.

How dare you behave as though you know more than medical experts, when those same experts acknowledge that there is so much we don't yet know, but with what we DO know, are smart enough to be scared of how easily this is spread, and recommend baseline precautions such as:
Frequent hand-washing
Physical distancing
Reduced social/public contact or interaction
Mask wearing
Covering your cough or sneeze
Avoiding touching your face
Sanitizing frequently touched surfaces

The more things we can all do to mitigate our risk of exposure, the better off we all are, in my opinion. Not only does it flatten the curve and allow health care providers to maintain levels of service that aren't immediately and catastrophically overwhelmed; it also reduces unnecessary suffering and deaths, and buys time for the scientific community to study the virus in order to come to a more full understanding of the breadth of its impacts in both the short and long term.

I reject the notion that it's "just a virus" and we'll all get it eventually. What a careless, lazy, heartless stance.
