I am very much at peace with my mortality.

Being at peace with mortality is a good thing because we are all a
little closer than we'd like, with far more good years behind us than
ahead. Someone once said that they were not afraid of death, it was
the dying that worried them. Dying from Covid, in an ICU, half
concious on a respirator, with tubes sticking out of your vital
orfices, seems like a particularly unpleasant exit plan. The few
people who recover seem to confirm that thought.


Unfortunately that is how most people die anyway. Pneumonia or COPD is
usually what they list as COD. The other options are not that
attractive either. "Old Age" is just a bad way to die. Get over it. I
suppose best case is a massive failure of the LAD (widow maker heart
attack) and the paramedics pronounce you at the scene.

In the mean time I am going to live every day out there, not hiding
under my bed.


Have you chosen your attire yet? I think you'd look good in a powder blue
leisure suit.

I had a tan leisure suit. I am old. My daughters saw a photo in one of
the albums, and their comment was “how could you let dad, dress like that?”

Without any serious underlying illnesses Covid is really not that
deadly according to CDC

https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vsrr/c...#Comorbidities

"For 6% of the deaths, COVID-19 was the only cause mentioned. For
deaths with conditions or causes in addition to COVID-19, on average,
there were 2.6 additional conditions or causes per death".

(click the blue "table 3" box)
If this upsets your scary narrative, complain to CDC.

I never owned a leisure suit. Stopped wearing bell bottoms when Uncle
Sam stopped making me and I never had a mood ring. I was a golf shirt
guy if it wasn't a T shirt ("Ban Lon" in those days but I did prefer
natural fibers over the polyester a real Ban Lon was)

That's one way to think of it. Another is that covid can kill you by itself. If you're older and have another "underlying condition", it can kill you even easier.

Or, I have a nail in my tire, but it's holding air. Covid comes by and rips the nail out, and now the tire goes flat.

Most reasonable folks would choose to NOT drive through the covid neighborhood with a nail in their tire.

The problem I see is that the government is paying hospitals to say it
was the neighborhood that caused your tire to go flat, not the nail.
With hospitals going broke, they certainly have the financial
incentive to ignore the nail.
I just talked to an old IBM buddy who is selling medical equipment now
and I was surprised at how many of his customers he said were going
bankrupt. He did say he would love to sell more ventilators and he has
plenty but nobody is buying.
I guess it is like hand sanitizer. Everyone thought that would be a
gold mine, now craft distillers are dumping in down the drain.

That is just what happens when we fall for everything we hear on CNN,
particularly in an election year.

No cable but they do get linked as the source for "news" by people who
don't understand it is an entertainment network, similar to Fox or the
Comedy Channel.
