·        Poor Chris Hayes of MSNBC has had a rough week. Poor guy has had a tough time.

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act provides 20% more in federal aid to hospitals for coronavirus cases. The dependable data I’ve been seeing indicates that we are likely to end up with a fatality rate akin to a normal flu season.
