    Default COVID claims another victim

    My closest friend of 35 years. It isn't over folks. I've played fantasy baseball with the same group of guys for 30 years. They all decided to gather in person this year for the draft.. a couple of us have moved so attended remotely. The draft has now become a spreader event. Five people have it, one is dead. I know this won't change any minds here, but this is as real as it gets. Don't let your guard down.

    Do NOT tell the Trumptopians about this. This is a Darwinian event that helps cull the herd.

    Sadly, many of them were openly discussing their love of Trump and making a big deal out of gathering with no masks. Pretty sad.

    This is a current event?

    What were this alleged person's age & underlying conditions/co-morbidities?

    Please post the DC if you wish to have a serious discussion, and next time, post in the proper forum.

    Well that is just dumb. I have a neighbor who I believe thinks I'm a snowflake because I back up from him when I talk to him. I really don't care. Gambling with Covid is just stupid.

    The mask/Covid thing and George Floyd death are the only points where I don't agree with my fellow patriots.

    Isn't your using the man's death as a way to bash Trump the same kind of heartlessness you accuse him of?

    America's future is bright, not white

    And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment

    I do not see any bashing of trump in that statement, and that is my response to his friend's death.

    I did use trump's supporters heartless attack as a way to bash trump... But that is totally different than using a death as a way to bash trump.

    Sorry to hear about your friend. You're right, my mind isn't changed, but I hope the rest of your friends recover.
