Very tricky billing here. Not the first time either, this billing when I did not order. To cancel, do this, it says. BUT THIS TIME NO OPTION OFFERED TO DO EITHER!

Trouble is, I hear it’s a good flick and we will watch it. Cheap too. But it’s the principle of the thing . . .

Great service, but yet and still . . .

Coronavirus tests delayed by Covid-19 contamination at CDC lab

Boy. Is this the CDC we’ve been hearing about so much these days? Listening carefully to their advice?

Chicago Newspapers

CDC to the rescue? Not quite.

A delay by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in quickly making coronavirus test kits available was the result of “a glaring scientific breakdown” at the CDA central lab, The Washington Post reported.

The Post reported that CDC facilities that assembled the testing kits “violated sound manufacturing practices, resulting in contamination of one of the three test components used in the highly sensitive detection process.”

James Le Duc, a virologist and former CDC officer who now heads the Galveston National Laboratory in Texas, told The Post that the situation was “really a terrible black mark on the CDC, and the impact was devastating to the country.”

Flash: Washington bureaucracy is not always dependable.

Which Way Now to Fight the Coronavirus — Should We Stay Or Should We Go?

Doctors’ advice very important, but not absolute deciding factor . . .

One part of this arrangement is for sure, and it’s not the extent of virus threat.

Texas will be the first state to begin re-opening its economy. In the next few days more retail shops will reopen for pickup and online purchases. State parks will reopen. It’s far from normal, but it’s something.

One million Texans have filed for unemployment, overwhelming call centers. 22 million Americans have done likewise. This level of joblessness is simply unsustainable, but it’s still growing.

We cannot look solely to the CDC for solutions. No more than a doctor decides if you live or die. He or she gives options. You the patient, in this case you a whole country, decide.
