    The big tennis tournament at Indian Wells has been canceled. This is a huge event.

    Dude has been on an absolute tear lately. it's like he knows he's going to get coronavirus and die and he just has so many jokes that he needs to share with the world beforehand.

    RJ:

    1. We don't fucking care about some tennis tournament besides Wimbledon or the US Open.
    2. They're cancelling stuff everywhere, including in the places where we live, but we're able to restrain ourselves from posting it.
    3. There's no need to post the same information about a tennis tournament on both of the coronavirus threads.
    4. Wash your hands (and brush your teeth).

    The answer of how many tests have been sent in the press conference wasn't bad, if it's true.

    The presser tonight...was surprisingly reasonable.

    Sounds like testing is going to ramp way up this next week, which means we will have a huge spike in number of cases but also a huge drop in the mortality numbers. Sounds like labcorp has a testing protocol ready to go.

    Each state now can conduct tests on their own withour having to send everything to CDC for verification.

    Sounds like economic relief via a payroll tax holiday, and also protections for hourly wage workers will be announced tomorrow.

    When I say "reasonable" I mean it wasn't fraught with boot licking. It was concise and direct.

    Pearl Jam postponing their spring tour. Probably the first of many canceled tours.

    Had tickets to Nashville and Denver.
    Not surprised, considering Seattle is like US Ground Zero.

    Impressive Fermi estimation.

    Hope you are right. They canceled Raleigh in 2016 for HB2, so thats logical. Would be great to get 2 NC shows.

    Yeah Id read rumors they want to hit swing states in the fall, but I guess the fall tour could now be next spring if were all still alive then.
