    I'm kind of thinking Donald Trump.
    But maybe Prince Charles.

    I wondering about Boris just now.
    A faulty hypothesis forming:
    A German scientist using Iranian physics and French mathematics.

    I just heard on NPR that Boris has recuperated and was sent home to self-quarantine like others who've recovered.

    I hope so.
    My, that's a quick jaunt through the ICU.
    Screw Trump's miracle malaria drug, let's all have what Boris is having.

    I was driving home when I heard the mention and just found out I got it wrong before. I guess focusing on the road is a bad thing when it comes to getting the complete story.

    I just heard an update here at home.
    NPR is reporting that Boris is still in the ICU, no ventilator required, and recovering nicely with simple breathing treatments. They also stated that he's expected to be released soon.

    Well, I guess it's Prine the way people are reacting. I can't remember ever hearing of him.

    It's not over yet of course.
    It could still be some unexpected actor or author or celebrity of any sort.

    There's even still time for it to be a highly corrupt politician holding high office.
    You don't wish it on anybody of course, but if it's got to happen maybe it could work out so that the planet is better off and the human race and civilization can start advancing again.

    Yeah - if it's got to happen, maybe it could be someone that at most; maybe 41.6% of voters might miss.

    Oh - and I think you are to be commended for listening to NPR or some other news source while driving.
    That rather makes you a role model - many people today might have been driving while watching NPR, or more likely, Fox News.

    I think it's hard to tell at this point with so many new celeb cases and deaths. Guess who hosted SNL's social distancing show from his home tonight? Tom Hanks. He recovered, but I feel like he's the American celeb poster child for coronavirus because he was the first big name American star who got it and I thought, "Oh, hell no." Every journalist, TV news reporter, late night talk show host, and average person had the same response. Some people were flippin' out too, but he also showed people it's not a death sentence. It's important that many people understood from that that the chance of death depends on lots of underlying health factors and how severe a person's symptoms are. He's in the high-risk age group but is otherwise in good health.

    Prine was much like Tom Waits. While he wasn't a big name himself, (to the general public) everyone covered their songs.
