  1. Sturgill Simpson tested positive. Judging by his post, he seems super fortunate. https://pitchfork.com/news/sturgill-simpson-tests-positive-for-covid-19/
  2. Died from coronavirus complications. https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-country/john-prine-obit-253684/
  3. My earliest memory of Fountains of Wayne with the perfect song for the times then and now.
  4. I wasn't the biggest fan of his play-by-play, but he was amazing as an analyst to John Rooney. Extremely nice guy when I met him a few years ago at an event at the school I was working at at the time.
  5. In 2003 Fountains of Wayne was on before Wilco on the same stage at Summerfest. Fifteen year old me was out of my mind happy.
  6. RIP Adam Schlesinger. One of my musical heroes. https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/fountains-of-waynes-adam-schlesinger-dead-obituary-coronavirus-975786/
  7. His lawyer, Josh Grier (who I think is/was Wilco's lawyer as well), says he is not in a medically-induced coma: https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/fountains-of-wayne-adam-schlesinger-hospital-coronavirus-975653/
  8. Pretty sure that’s Sue’s favorite song.
  9. Instagram stories are up for 24 hours, then gone.
  10. Chicago Public Schools clearly does not have a plan. My school has over 900 people in it. My wife's school has 5,000 people (students plus staff) in it. My school still does not have any hand sanitizer. They say there should not be any unnecessary visitors to schools, yet on Tuesday thousands of people will be entering over 500 schools that serve as polling places. What about kids that need to eat? CPS received federal funding for a waiver to do a meals on wheels program. So many districts around the country are shutting down schools. It seems Chicago Public Schools knows what the right thing to do is, they just constantly choose the other option. Me and my wife both fall into the vulnerable category (auto-immune and diabetic). I am starting to get worried (doesn't help I have major anxiety/depression) and am frankly pissed off at the response.
  11. I would like to give a hearty middle finger to Lori Lightfoot. No gatherings of over 250 people. That’s the lunch period in my school. My wife’s school has over 4,500 students in it.
  12. Good luck and I hope everything will turn out ok.
  13. MLS has suspended operations for 30 days. The NHL is putting suspending the season "on the table" to owners and no one has spoken out about it yet. Looks like the MLB is suspending operations as well, with an announcement coming shortly.
  14. As a teacher, I'm starting to worry a little. Children are disgusting, especially middle schoolers. Also, Rudy Gobert is a fucking idiot.
  15. I haven't been this excited about a White Sox team in years! I'm hoping for 80-85 wins as the floor, just missing the playoffs. If they make the playoffs, that'll just be icing on the cake. Over/under on Astros players being beaned?
  16. At this point, she's just in the race to kneecap Bernie Sanders, having put out a press statement that she's staying in the race until the end of March, even though there's no path to the nomination for her.
  17. Both Buttigieg and Klobuchar drop out, with Klobuchar endorsing Biden. Biden has barely visited any Super Tuesday states (https://www.nytimes.com/2020/02/26/us/politics/joe-biden-california-super-tuesday.html). Warren has backed out of her pledge to not take SuperPAC money. Tomorrow should be an interesting day.
  18. If this shit gets pulled, another 4 years of Trump. Headline: Democratic Leaders Willing to Risk Party Damage to Stop Bernie Sanders https://www.nytimes.com/2020/02/27/us/politics/democratic-superdelegates.html
  19. You are absolutely correct. The Supreme Court alone was all the reason I needed to vote for Clinton in 2016.
  20. Pretty sure student loan debt goes through the Department of Education.
  21. Nope, but the conversation will be front and center. Also, I want some progressive judges, and with Ruth Bader Ginsburg aging, I’d like Bernie to pick a Supreme Court justice. I’d also love for my student debt to be wiped so I can you know, spend money and contribute to the economy. I also feel that Bernie isn’t bought and paid for by corporations/banks.
  22. Just trying to make a point that Sanders is electable. And Biden won’t stop lying. Now he is saying he was arrested in Apartheid South Africa for trying to see Nelson Mandela. The person who he was supposedly traveling with said that never happened. He lied about being a part of the Civil Rights Movement and now this. He has to know that it is just about over for him.
