…and declared 18 more months of quarantine:

You will be tested, whether you like it or not. You will be vaccinated, with his vaccine, whether you like it or not. You will not be allowed outside until late May at the earliest, and you won’t be allowed to gather in groups for 18 months, because that’s how long the vaccine takes. This is the plan, folks.

I enjoyed the part where he was anointed Emperor Zod, ruler of planet earth without a paper ballot. Where do you want to go today? It doesn’t matter, all yours freedoms belongs to him.

    Why do I feel like I’m in a horror movie? I can’t imagine Trump will allow this.

    Early on, user group stuff. Later at comdex. Doubt he would remember me. Back in the wild days when we all owned computer software companies.

    There’s no “doing this.” Bill Gates is not our emperor. He’s just sharing his opinion of what should be done, same as millions of other people.

    Yes. I thought he made a lot of sense, too. (I listened to about the first two thirds of the broadcast.)

    However, I think we should go back to work very soon, with only voluntary distancing, and accept whatever the consequences may be.

    I want to be an optimist. The Dems, supported by quite few friendly billionaires, were poised to attack, all media all the time, and of course the disease would have gotten worse. Why not pull back, let people smell depression, get some control on the disease, then before the end of April, go for it when everyone supports the idea of not causing a depression. We old folks can remain hold up.

    There really is not a thing called voluntary distancing for most of us. We go to work and do what our bosses tell us. If we die doing it that is just life or most likely business which only cares about my life in relationship to their bottom line.

    I’m sure that’s true for some people who have to be in actual contact with others for much of the day, who can’t wear a face mask or wash their hands frequently, who don’t spend time alone at their desk or in a vehicle. I don’t know if that’s most people or not.

    But none of us works around the clock, and we can certainly adjust our off-hour behavior to reduce exposure. I want bars and restaurants to reopen as soon as possible, but that doesn’t mean that everyone will choose to frequent them. I assume there will be a broad range of comfort zones, some people ready to step right back into life as before, others maintaining many of our new, more cautious ways.

    So work and home only. No out of work life distractions. Yes a capitalist dream come true. All work, no play.

    Hardly. But it isn’t about a “dream come true” right now. It’s about not closing down the country, at truly horrific cost, because an unknown number of people are going to die. We know now that it can happen again. Let’s prepare as best we reasonably can, but let’s leave people free to work and go about their lives, even when/if this thing flares up again in the fall.

    Without going to check, tell me: is that a man or a woman?

    Yes.

    My friend, in the early 21st century, even that is going out on a limb.

    I recently re-watched one of the great cold war movies, The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, and thought that the woman who chaired the Soviet inquisition panel, Beatrix Lehmann, might have been the same one who played the leading telepathic alien, above, in the original Star Trek pilot episode The Cage, which was filmed in 1965, the same year as The Spy Who Came in from the Cold.

    But I was wrong. The actress who played the alien in the last picture you posted was Serena Sande (1928-2001).

    I decided it was the way Ms. Lehmann wore her hair that made me think of the aliens from The Cage.
