Well done! I am among your despised boomers ("drunk at the mall with their grandchildrens' credit cards"?; had to look up NPC in the urban dictionary). The innumeracy of the populace stunned me. I read John Ionnides article early in Stat and latched onto that like a life raft- used to search his name weekly to find anything else he was doing. https://www.statnews.com/2020/03/17/a-fiasco-in-the-making-as-the-coronavirus-pandemic-takes-hold-we-are-making-decisions-without-reliable-data/ (and found and followed some of his like minded colleagues-see below)

Despite my boomer-hood, I found the "boomer remover" tag amusing, I protested (lockdowns) for the first time in my 6 decades, and I have not returned to church. You expressed your disappointment with "faith" so sharply (If I had your way with words, I could express better the depth of my appreciation for that accurate and damning judgement of the church's response. Apparently the people in buildings are not "the church" as they didn't prevail against the threats of government and the flu, let alone the gates of hell).

As a nurse, I signed the Barrington Declaration early and as a Florida resident, I was pleased that DeSantis seemed to be able to weigh math and science accurately and keep our schools open and open up businesses and parks. Loved his roundtable discussions with Jay Battacharya, Martin Kuldorff, and Sunetra Gupti.
