  1. Yes, we are fortunate to live in a community and a state in which our elected leaders have taken an intelligent and realistic view toward this pandemic.
  2. To paraphrase a well-known U.S. senator: "I'm sick and tired hearing about your damned potholes." Haven't read so much about potholes since my freshman class in political science. If I remember right, the textbook said that in local elections, where there are often no issues of importance to debate, you can always count on potholes and garbage pickup to attack an incumbent opponent, since there will always be potholes in the streets and trash cans waiting to be emptied. Seems some people around here never got beyond that freshman level of political science. There are important local issues to
  3. Two stores in Chapala have what you're looking for. One is the jewelry store a few doors west of the Arbol de Cafe on Hidalgo. The other is the curio shop next to the Cucumber restaurant on the walkway in the plaza.
  4. Yes. But I think you're feeling an oxygen rush from the dense, humid air. I know I am.
  5. This is well documented. I just took a look on Google and discovered that the U.S. has done the same with Guatemalans and Haitians. There is a long list of articles on the subject. You may want to look that up for yourself before being so dismissive.
  6. And the U.S. is also guilty of deporting people known to have tested positive for CV to Mexico.
  7. Meanwhile, a large segment of the population both here in Mexico and NOB claim that the two governments are purposely inflating death totals in order to make the pandemic seem more serious than it is. What would these governments gain by inflating these figures? Absolutamente nada!
  8. Generic drugs tend to be weaker in dosage by about 20% when compared to brand-name drugs. If you are using drugs that have a dosage measured in milligrams, this is probably close enough. However, if you are using drugs measured in micrograms, you should stick with the brand-name version.
  9. I happened by the east end of the bike path (at the fountain in Chapala) late this afternoon and was truly stunned to see eight or nine bicyclists in just the first block of the new path. Two them were headed west and the rest were headed east...rush hour on the bike path. In contrast, street traffic was stunningly light.
  10. Mudgirl...sometimes a measure of good sarcasm is how many people actually fall for it.
  11. "Fool me once, shame on you/Fool me twice...can't get fooled again." --George W. Bush The original post makes a glaring error in its statistical comparison. It compares statistics of an event that ran its course in 1957 to a current event that is still in progress. Although we may have a good idea of how many people died during the 1957 event, the death totals from the current event are rising and may continue to rise for some time. We do not know how many people will eventually die from the covid pandemic of 2020, which makes it impossible to calculate a rate of death to use for compa
  12. Lots of information, both pertinent and germane to this discussion...
  13. Like most diseases, covid-19 has a disproportionate adverse effect on the oldest and weakest among us. In our society, we tend to warehouse these people in nursing homes and elderly care facilities, where they are trapped like sitting ducks with no way out. All it takes is one caregiver or visitor to introduce the virus to all of those in the trap. While an individual may not become infected from the first exposure, repeated exposure within these closed environments leads to near-universal infection among the lot of them. I have seen estimates as high as 25-50% of all deaths from covid-19 occ
