Here are the twitter links to the two CDC studies on Covid transmission:
This one was from last week – a CDC article about a study in Hong Kong.
This one came out this morning – in re an outbreak in a call center in South Korea.
Diane Napper is running for MN State Senate in SD63 . Check out her website. Help out if you can.
And if I can’t convince you to “socially distance” yourself for the duration of the public health crisis, hopefully this excellent article will. It’s a long, it’s a long, technical read – but the uphot is, the difference between a flu-like .5% death rate, and Italy/Iran/Wuhan-like 3-6%, is keeping the rate of infections down to what the health system can handle. That means lowering the number of infections at any given time, so the heatlh care system can keep up.
It’s literally a matter of life and death.
Wash your hands – often. Wash down surfaces. Don’t sneeze on people – sneeze into a hanky or your elbow or anything but open air. Enjoy some alone time. Stay home from work if you can, and keep your distance if you can’t.
We had a couple calls to action on this week’s show.
Opioid Law Reform
Here’s the link to Rep. Munson’s fact page on opioid law reforms and his “intractable pain” bill, HF3746, which will reform the blunt-force abuses in MInnesota’s prescription opioid laws. The current law forces professionals – doctors, physician assistants, dentists, pharmacists and even veterinarians – to be far, far too cautious about helping people with long-term, intractable pain.
Please – call your legislators and have them support HF3746 (and its upcoming companion in the Senate).
The Truth about Coronavirus
And here’s Dr. Cathaleen Madsen’s piece on the realities of dealint with the Covid19 virus – and, really, all viral epidemics. Read it and be informed – something the mainstream media, in its lust to undercut the Trump administration, will effect only as a last resort.

Well, it seems at least one tradition is on a “pause” for the foreseeable future.
AM1280 and the NARN won’t be out at the State Fair this year.
Fifteen straight summers, the NARN guys and I worked out at the Fair. The station took a different route this year.
Which on the one hand is fine – no need to add “getting to the fairgrounds” to all the other show prep stuff.
On the other hand, it means I lose the big benefit of being with the station at the Fair: having an air-conditioned room with a fridge full of water to retreat to when the crowds get to be too much. That, along with getting to meet the audience face to face, was one of the highlights of whole “show at the Fair” experience.
I’ll have to come up with some other side hustle that offers that…
