Trash Bin Lease

From the humor department.  Watching CNN yesterday, I was reminded about this quote:

“Careful. People in masks cannot be trusted.”

-Fezzik (Andre the Giant from “Princess Bride”)

More humor:

Yesterday, the son-in-law claimed the federal response to the pandemic was a “great success story.”

Meanwhile, over 30 million in the USA have filed unemployment claims.

The son-in-law is nothing but a punk arse grifter.

The H-Town Mayor is proposing a $1.14 monthly lease for our black and green garbage bins.  Annually, that’s about the price of a Saint Arnold at The Yard.  So, for all these years, the black and green bins aren’t mine after all?  They belong to the city?  That doesn’t seem right.

The Astros sent me this yesterday:

Dear Valued Astros Season Ticket Holder,
While we all await the return of Major League Baseball and our Houston Astros to Minute Maid Park, we remain committed to maintaining safe and healthy communities. In support of our state and local officials’ guidelines, we realize this means the return of baseball to Minute Maid Park is unlikely in the month of May. We remain optimistic that baseball will return in 2020 and await future schedule updates from MLB. In the meantime, we are providing fans with an update on impacted games originally scheduled for March, April, and May.   
If your account is paid in full, you will receive an account credit for the value of these specific games. If you choose to use any of the credit for upgrades or additional purchases during the 2020 season, you will receive a 25% discount on those purchase. Any remaining credit from the 2020 season will be applied toward your 2021 season ticket renewal. Additionally, by leaving this credit on your account for the 2021 season, you will guarantee your 2020 pricing for your tickets.
If you prefer a refund for the value of these impacted games instead of the account credit package outlined above, you may request a refund by contacting your Account Manager in writing.

Here is a question.  If they don’t play any games at The Yard this season, what justification would they have for raising ticket prices in 2021?

The Baseball Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony scheduled for July has been postponed until 2021.

It is looking more and more like no MLB at The Yard this season.

Today is the last day of April.

Here is what State Rep. Anna Eastman Sent Our Yesterday:

Important Election Update:


I hope you, your family and friends are doing well and staying healthy. If you are on the front lines as a health care worker, first responder, grocery clerk, pharmacist, sanitation worker, and member of the vital essential services community, my heart and prayers go out to you.

Please remember to keep practicing proper social distancing and only venturing out for essential services. I know this is a difficult time.

And we have to adjust to doing things differently even as we keep living our lives- including our elections.

The Democratic Primary runoff has been rescheduled for July 14, and  we still have important races on the ballot. 

The Harris County Clerk is committed to conducting safe, secure and accessible elections.

All voters can now apply to vote by mail. 

In the next few days, Democratic Primary voters from House District 148 will be receiving from me a mail ballot application.

Out of concern for COVID-19 and community spread, I strongly encourage you to fill out the mail ballot application and return it.

Mail ballots make it easy to cast a vote from the convenience of your own home and avoid going to a voting location.

We don’t know when things will return to normal. We still have to vote.
Make sure your voice is heard.

Mark the Disability box, sign, stamp and mail the application.

If you know of another voter in your household who did not vote in the Democratic Primary but who wants to vote in the runoff, download an application here and make sure to mark the Disability,  Annual Application and Democratic Primary  boxes: https://www.harrisvotes.org/Docs/VotingInfo/Ballot%20By%20Mail%20Application%20-%20English.pdf

VOTE BY MAIL: The safe and Easy Way to Vote. For more information go to voteannaeastman.com

In Texas, Rep. Eastman is leading the charge to get folks to vote by mail in the upcoming Democratic Party Primary runoff.

Here is from the Chron today:

Harris County Commissioners Court on Tuesday voted to spend up to $12 million for an expected uptick in requests for mail-in ballots in the July primary runoff and November general election from voters concerned about contracting the novel coronavirus at polling places.

The three Democrats on the five-member court voted to give County Clerk Diane Trautman enough to send a mail-in ballot to every registered voter in the county over the objections of the two Republican members who said the clerk failed to justify the expense.

Trautman said her office is planning for any outcome in a lawsuit filed by Democrats and voting rights advocates seeking to force the Texas secretary of state to allow any resident to request a mail ballot.

“No matter what the courts and the state decide for the July and November elections, we must be prepared for an increase in mail ballots, which we are already seeing,” Trautman said.

On Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick’s description of Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo yesterday:

I am glad she ordered us to wear masks during the pandemic.

Patrick supports a guy who said a few weeks ago that infections would soon be down to zero.  There are now over a million.

The hard copy of the Chron was totally soaked this morning.  Ok.

Commentary is proud to be a part of State Rep. Anna Eastman’s effort on mail ballots.  She is stepping up and leading on voting by mail.

See here:  https://www.facebook.com/VoteAnnaEastman/videos/667092980782795/UzpfSTEwMDkzMTYwMDM6MTAyMTk0MTM2NTI0MjQ1NDc/?epa=SEARCH_BOX.

Stay tuned for sure.

Governor Greg Abbott laid out his plan to reopen Texas starting this Friday. Commentary really hasn’t seen any medical or public health experts say this is a good idea.  In fact, Texas Monthly has a piece today on not so favorable comments from some of these experts.  That being said, Cinemark said yesterday that mid-July is probably the earliest they would be open.  I don’t plan on dining out anytime soon.

The Chron E-Board came out in support of Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo’s order on masks.

That’s all I have today.

Vote by mail.

The Draconian Word

My good buddy, Rice political scientist Bob Stein said this in a lengthy Chron interview this past weekend about the push for voting by mail:

The Democrats should be careful what they wish for. If we ramp up voting by mail, we disenfranchise relatively more Democratic voters. Most of them don’t know how to vote by mail, have never done it before, are likely to make mistakes, don’t stay at the same residence, and won’t get a ballot.

I disagree.  I don’t know if Bob has ever voted by mail.  I have.  I find it easier than voting on the gizmos. When your mail ballot arrives, there is a set of easy to read instructions in different languages.  Depending on the number of races and candidates, you get a big arse sheet or sheets that you go through and mark. The big challenge is remembering to stick it in two envelopes and signing the back.

Over the past few weeks, I have watched intensely everything that is going on here, there and everywhere.  We have a virus in our midst that we don’t know how to stop.  Billions are being spent on trying to find treatments.  Billions are being spent trying to get folks tested.  Billions are being spent trying to develop a vaccine.  If you get it and survive, we don’t if you are immune to the virus down the road.

Close to a million in the USA have been infected and over 54,000 have died.

If someone close to you gets it and has to check into the ER, you only get to see them in person when they are well enough to be sent home.  If they don’t make it, you don’t get to be there for their final moments to hold their hands and tell them a final goodbye.

Social distancing, a term I had never heard of until a few weeks ago, is a reason infections and deaths are not higher.  A lot of folks aren’t venturing out, places are closed and people to people contact has been greatly reduced.

If we would have gone the Lt. Governor Dan Patrick route and kept everything open, a whole lot more people would have gotten infected, our health care systems would have exploded and collapsed.   A lot more people would have died.  What is so hard about this to understand?

Scientists and public health experts say that the virus comes out of the mouth of an infected person when they talk and then it hangs around in the air looking for another mouth or nose to jump into.

In order to help stop the spread, Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo issued an order for folks to wear masks when out in public.  The head of the Houston Police Officers Union called her order draconian.  What is so draconian about not wanting to get sick?

Chron columnist Erica Grieder had a column yesterday on Judge Hidalgo’s order and the negative reaction she got from some GOP types.

Commentary will say it again.  When historians look back at Pandemic 2020 in the USA, they are not going to look kindly at a sizeable chunk of the GOP leadership in the USA and Texas.

We have all played fast and loose in the past with the term draconian, Commentary included. I went and looked up the definition of draconian and it has to do with a severe set of laws, harsh and cruel.  I don’t think having to wear a mask fits the definition.

Fully opening up the economy right now, increasing infections, more folks getting sick, straining our health care system, and watching the body count rise, now that probably fits the definition of draconian.

I watched “What’s Your Point” yesterday and they piled on Judge Hidalgo over her order.  Commentary will say it again.  How come folks haven’t been able to buy a mask here in the H-Town area for weeks now? Why are folks lining up to get the free masks? I was disappointed host Greg Groogan never got around to asking his panelists about taking a few tablespoons of Lysol for the COVID-19 cure.

Channel 2’s General Manager Jerry Martin this morning in his editorial came out and endorsed Judge Hidalgo’s order.  Get on the program, folks.

I am sure it gets tiring for the Donald Trump supporters when try to defend the sh_t that falls out of his mouth.  Like last Thursday, when he talked about ingesting disinfectant.  Here is what Royko sent me Friday after my Lysol and Trump take:

I watched the briefing, and did not take it that way. He was generalizing, and broadly suggesting that there were more findings of applications of existing chemicals that might have a similar antiseptic action on the virus.

If he truly wanted to harm the anti-American obstructionists and anarchists, the body count would have been a lot higher.

Get concerned the moment there is a triggering event where either side declares that it’s time for a purge.

Ok. Thank you.

Friday morning, Trump’s press office said Trump’s remarks were taken out of context.

A few hours later, Trump said he was being sarcastic.  He wasn’t.

Still, folks like Royko are made to look (pick your facial emoji). Constantly.

I have nothing to say about the H-Town City Council Member who compared his actions to those of Rosa Parks.  Words aren’t necessary when a fella makes himself a national laughingstock.

Last Friday was supposed to be my scheduled appointment to get my hair cut.   It didn’t happen.  I have an electric beard trimmer in my possession, so a buzz cut is definitely an option at some point.  We will see what happens.

We have missed 28 regular season games. 16 of them at The Yard.

Lysol This

To GOP folks.  Your leader wants you to stick a flashlight up your arse and take a couple of tablespoons of Lysol to get rid of COVID-19.  For now, Commentary will stick to the less invasive Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo’s order to cover your face and social distance.

From the Daily Beast today:

Here’s a sentence you probably never expected to read—the manufacturer behind disinfectants Lysol and Dettol has pleaded with the public to ignore the president of the United States and refrain from drinking their toxic heavy-duty cleaning products. During the Thursday coronavirus press briefing, President Trump pondered, out loud and in front of several television cameras, whether injecting disinfectant into human bodies could be a good way to fight the deadly virus. On Friday, the maker of Lysol said that due to “recent speculation,” it wanted to urge people not to ingest their disinfectants. “We must be clear that under no circumstance should our disinfectant products be administered into the human body (through injection, ingestion or any other route,)” the Reckitt Benckiser Group told The Washington Post, adding: “Please read the label and safety information.”

A tragic embarrassment.  The failures of GOP leaders are epic.

It is funny.  The Lysol label says it’s “clinically guaranteed.” You know some MAGA folks are going to try it.

From the gruesome stat department:  Each US COVID-19 infection equals 29 US jobs lost. As of today.

Texas State Rep. Gene Wu was on the “Today” show this morning here: https://www.today.com/video/threats-against-asian-americans-are-on-the-rise-amid-coronavirus-crisis-82510405969?playlist=mmlsnnd_todayarchivesfriday.

Nice job, Representative!

Go check out Alicia Keys’ “Good Job” which she performed last night on CNN.

On the NFL Draft last night, I only watched up until the first pick was made.

Stay safe this weekend and look out for others.

You know the response would have been totally different if it was a Harris County Judge Ed Emmett issuing an order for us to wear face coverings.  Just saying.  It is something about a 29-years old Latina that threatens folks.

Commentary has said it before.  History will not be kind to many GOP leaders when Pandemic 2020 is revisited.

I said this on our family group text yesterday regarding Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo’s order on face coverings:

It’s not anyone’s intention to direct law enforcement to stop and frisk barefaced folks.  It is to highlight the seriousness of the problem and give retail folks the cover to turn folks away.

We have coronavirus out there attacking folks and some GOP elected officials and leaders are more freaked out and aghast at Judge Hidalgo’s order.  Ignoring the science and public health experts on face coverings during the pandemic is stunning.  Let it be known that GOP leaders were absent when courage and leadership was required.

Just ask yourself one question?  Why do you think you can’t find a single mask for sale anywhere in town on even online?   The public is way out ahead of some GOP elected officials and leaders on this one for sure.

Governor Greg Abbott is going to tell us when we can go to work and go shopping.  I think it is pretty clear that folks and businesses themselves will make that determination.  The smart ones will.

I finally scored me some hand sanitizer yesterday.  I am set.

Sylvia Lafuente (my sister) sent me this yesterday:

What happens to all the Astro ‘give aways’ for the 2020 season?

The stuff is stored in the giveaway warehouse.

I don’t have much to say about the Red Sox or the Astros or MLB.

Mil Máscaras

And on this Earth Day 2020, we are literally fighting for our survival.

From the Mil Máscaras Department from the Chron today:

Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo on Wednesday will order residents to cover their faces in public, county officials with knowledge of the plan said, the latest effort by local government to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus.

The new rules, which will require residents 10 and older to cover the nose and mouth when outside the home, will take effect Monday and last 30 days, three county officials said. Acceptable garments include a homemade mask, scarf, bandana or handkerchief. Medical masks or N-95 respirators are not recommended as they are most needed by first responders and health workers.

Hidalgo is expected to announce the face mask rule at a 3 p.m. news conference.

Why doesn’t it go into effect sooner?

Wouldn’t it be cool if all stores carried all the masks and hand sanitizers you needed?

Meanwhile, I was watching the H-Town City Council meeting this morning and Council Member Greg Travis was saying he can’t wear a mask because he has a sinus condition that prevents him from wearing a mask.  Maybe he ought to just stay at home for everyone’s sake.

The coolest mask I have seen:  State Senator Carol Alvarado’s Astros mask.

This fella is arguably the most dangerous man in Texas these days.  From the Chron:

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick said the country never should have been locked down and is blaming the “wrong numbers” and “wrong science” for devastating the state and national economies.

“Our country should not have been locked down,” Patrick, a Republican from Montgomery County said on a Fox News Channel program with host Tucker Carlson.

Patrick said while every life is valuable, Texas had lost only about 500 people, but the economy has been destroyed because of the stay-at-home orders. Nearly every governor in the nation issued such an order, including Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican who signed a stay-at-home order three weeks ago to stem the spread of COVID-19.

Patrick, 70, took issue with the science that has been cited to justify the lockdowns. He said at the end of January, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, was saying the virus wasn’t a big issue. Then weeks later, 2 million Americans were predicted to die, Patrick said. Then it was 100,000 to 200,000 deaths. Now it might be under 60,000.

“They told us, Tucker, follow the science,” Patrick said. “Well, what science?”

I sure am glad all this is going on the record.  The way a lot of GOP leaders have performed their duties during this pandemic is just mind boggling.

In today’s Flavor Section of the Chron, there are two stories on tacos.  In one, Chron Food Critic Alison Cook writes about the early taco days and mentions Las Cazuelas.  The eatery used to be in H-Town’s Northside on Fulton and Quitman.  It was a late night grub hangout.  I remember going there after a night of campaign sign making or sign putting up.

I made me breakfast tacos this morning.  Leftover French Fries from Pappa’s mixed in with scrambled eggs for papas con huevos, Kroger store made flour tortillas and turkey bacon with dashes of Tabasco.  Three of them to be exact.

Last night was Dollar Dog Night.

Everyone knows Commentary is from Baytown.  Baytown is close to the San Jacinto Battleground.  We were taught at an early age what happened at the San Jacinto Battleground on April 21, 1836.  Commentary will be one of the very few here in the H-Town area who gives a shout out to San Jacinto Day.  They don’t teach it anymore these days and that’s sad.

Governor Andrew Cuomo will pay a visit to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue today.  The Governor is too savvy of a politician to let himself be used as a photo op.

The Texas Tribune and Propublica put out a story yesterday about officials knowing that the spread was coming and still kept the Rodeo open.   They should have shut it down earlier.  Everybody knows that.

Of course, right now, the H-Town area faces other challenges.  We are getting clobbered for sure.

Wasn’t it just a week or so ago that a hearing was held on cutting production of oil in Texas?

I filled up my tank in Baytown Friday and I used my Kroger fuel points for 50 cents off per gallon and I ended paying 87 cents per gallon.  I took pictures of the price per gallon on the pump and the total I paid, like $10 for 11 ½ gallons of gas.  I thought about tweeting the photos over the past weekend, but I felt I would be rubbing it in to an industry that is key to the H-Town economy.  Heck, I grew up in a house – where my Dad still lives – that is three blocks form the world’s seventh largest refinery.  After the price of oil hit two cents a barrel yesterday, I didn’t feel so bad about posting the photos.

Speaking of Baytown, La Isla, was the nickname of the ‘hood where I grew up.  I have a lid with La Isla on it along with one of the City of Baytown’s symbols – The Big Oak Tree on Texas Avenue.  The tree is also in Senate District 6 along with a part of the San Jacinto Battleground. If I have to venture out today, I will wear the lid.

Quit the Gym

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and his daily chat is the Democrats’ response to the State of the Daily Sh_tshow.   Governor Cuomo has stepped up and demonstrated how to deal with a crisis.   He is effective because he comes across as speaking for all of the country’s governors – Democratic and Republican alike. His demeanor is very non-partisan which is what is needed during a global crisis.  The fact that he is one of our country’s most notable Democrats, makes it even better.  Donald Trump, meanwhile, plays the partisan card time and time again throughout this crisis.

I don’t get those that say where is former Vice President Joe Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi? Governor Cuomo is carrying our Party’s flag for now, doing an impressive job, and representing the Democratic Party well.

I had to give up my gym membership this past Friday.  I’ll be honest.  I haven’t been going much the last year and a half because of work and spending time in Baytown.  I went online to see about cancelling and the club had a cancellation link ready.  I appreciate that they weren’t trying to hide the ball and make it hard to cancel.

I read Governor Greg Abbott’s whatever plan Friday and opening gyms with social distancing would be in one of the opening phases.  How do you do that?  How many times at the gym have you gone to one of the weight machines and it is damp with the prior user’s sweat and you have to wipe it off?  Unless they figure out a way to self-sterilize the machine after every use, I am not going.  I usually went during non-peak times to avoid the crowds.  Monday nights were the worse, so how are they going to control how many folks they allow.  A lottery system?  Online appointments?  I joined in 1997 and I kind of felt bad about quitting.  I thought about staying thinking my monthly dues were helping take care of an employee, but that is probably not the case.  I will return when they develop a vaccine.

It is a crying shame to watch the images of health care workers in their scrubs confronting the dumbarse stay-at-home protesters.

A ton of folks were laughing at the Florida GOP Governor because he didn’t put on his mask the correct way a couple or so days ago.   I am not one to poke fun. I stumbled upon a mask here at my place (how it got here I do not know) about 10 days or so ago.  It took a while to figure out how to slip it on.

The order online and pick-up works as well as you can expect.  I had another experience this past weekend.  Everybody is trying.  I am not going to complain.

Ditto for the current state of online ordering and shipping.  I am still waiting on some items.

Commentary has been a pay-by-cash fella for the most part.  Groceries, takeout, and other stuff.  Not anymore.

We have missed 21 regular season games.

GOP voters want mail ballots. They want to vote and not get the COVID-19 and risk dying. Nothing wrong with that.

Voting-by-mail and mail ballots is not a Democratic Party thing. It is a common sense and safety thing during this COVID-19 pandemic.

Let me give you some background. Mont Belvieu and Barber Hill ISD are in Chambers County, right next to the eastern border of Harris County.  They are Baytown’s neighbors. Mont Belvieu is 90% White. Barbers Hill ISD has a 70% White student population. Chambers County went 80% for Sen. Ted Cruz in 2018.

The following story was the co-lead front page story in yesterday’s Baytown Sun. The other co-lead story was the judicial ruling from Austin on mail ballots.

The Baytown Sun is not the Texas Observer.

Here is the entire story from the Baytown Sun:

A state representative who asked the state to investigate the City of Mont Belvieu and Barbers Hill ISD over encouraging people to use mail-in ballots instead of in-person voting for the May 2 election  says Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton backs him up.  

Barbers Hill and the City of Mont Belvieu leaders strongly disagree and vowed to proceed with elections and encouraging voters who do not want to vote in person because of the coronavirus to apply for and use mail-in ballots.

“We will be upholding democracy on May 2 in a joint election with Barbers Hill ISD giving all eligible voters the right for their voices to be heard,” said Mont Belvieu City Manager Nathan Watkins.

Meanwhile, State Judge Tim Sulak, with the 353rd District Court in Travis County, said Wednesday he is going to ease restrictions on mail-in voting by issuing a temporary injunction that allows people afraid of getting the virus to use mail-in balloting for the July runoff elections. Paxton’s office is expected to appeal the judge’s ruling. 

District 128 Rep. Briscoe Cain sent a letter to Paxton’s office requesting a criminal investigation to see if either the district, the city, or both violated Texas Election Code provisions. Cain claims at least three provisions of the code could lead to prosecution for causing people to unlawfully apply for a ballot.  

Cain has pointed to an opinion Paxton released Wednesday in response to State Rep. Stephanie Klick’s request for guidance on whether Texans can say they are disabled out of fear of contracting COVID-19 and be able to use a mail-in ballot. 

“Mail ballots based on disability are specifically reserved for those who are physically ill and cannot vote in-person as a result,” Paxton said. “Fear of contracting COVID-19 does not amount to a sickness or physical condition as required by the Legislature. The integrity of our democratic election process must be maintained, and law established by our Legislature must be followed consistently.”  

Cain said Paxton’s letter vindicates him as well as District 23 State Rep. Mayes Middleton, who has also expressed concerns over Mont Belvieu and Barbers Hill using mail-in ballots May 2 rather than moving the election to November. 

“The AG’s letter clearly demonstrates the position that Rep. Middleton and I have repeatedly advanced,” Cain said. “The way these local government officials chose to put the integrity of their elections at risk is shameful.”

As far as the AG opinion, Watkins said nothing has changed on his end.

“The City of Mont Belvieu is in receipt of the Attorney General’s advisory opinion regarding voting by mail,” Watkins said. “The opinion in no way changes how the city approaches the upcoming election.”

Barbers Hill ISD Superintendent Dr. Greg Poole was equally as adamant about the May 2 election.

“The most basic tenet of the Republican Party is local control, and it is shameful a local Republican rep that doesn’t represent a single one of our taxpayers is seeking to undermine local control,” Poole said. “We have two exceptional entities governed by two outstanding boards choosing to legally hold locally-needed essential elections. Barbers Hill ISD will continue to focus on the safety of our students while keeping our tax rate one of the lowest in the Houston area.”

Although on March 18, Gov. Greg Abbott issued a proclamation allowing local officials to move their elections from May to Nov. 3 by suspending Texas Election Code provisions, Poole has stated part of the decision was made to continue with the May 2 election was in relation to a $277.5 bond the district called for in January. He has pointed to the district growth, saying they cannot wait to turn dirt on necessary improvements included in the bond. There are also two school board positions up for election. Mont Belvieu has a mayoral election between incumbent Nick Dixon and challenger Kevin Yeager. Two council positions are also up. 

Cain said he is sympathetic to both the district’s and city’s concerns.

“But encouraging people to vote this way is illegal, and they could open up the person illegally applying for it for prosecution,” Cain said. “I do not think a district attorney or a court would hold someone accountable for requesting a ballot based on disability when government officials are telling them to do it. But people should be held accountable for telling someone to do something illegal. Voters trusted them that what they were telling them was correct.” 

Stephen Chang, Texas Secretary of State spokesman, said his office had advised municipalities to move their elections. In a mass email sent by Chang, it references Abbott’s Executive Order GA 14 and states, “If you don’t move your May 2nd election, you are subjecting voters to health risks and potential criminal violations. Failure to postpone your election will put your election at severe risk for an election contest.”

Chang further stated while Abbott cannot unilaterally postpone municipal elections, he can authorize applicable elections entities such as municipalities to move their elections. 

Some cities say they are also going ahead with the May 2 election.

Port Lavaca officials said they are planning to hold its election May 2. The city’s mayor, Jack Whitlow, said if they move to November, there would be more polling locations since it would include both the city and county elections. He said it would be difficult to hire election workers to handle all of the polling locations.

It just makes sense.  It is not a Democratic thing versus a Republican thing.  It is a I don’t want to get sick thing.  Democrats and Republicans both see that voting-by-mail is civics social distancing.  It’s not a political thing.  It is a public health thing.

350 or so H-Town area individuals and businesses want the Harris County Judge and H-Town Mayor to ease the stay-at-home restrictions.  Some folks want to see the list of 350. I guess they want to know who else is waving the white flag.

I wonder how many of the 350 are public health or medical experts?
