Happy Good Friday, everyone. Hope you’re all well and safe.

From Cassandra, a bunch of good reads: David Bowie’s final years, how to comfort an upset friend, and a story of Kentuckians driving out Illinois carpetbaggers (“This is how we do it in Kentucky, baby!”).

If you’re wondering how your county/state is doing in terms of social distancing, there’s now a scoreboard you can consult. There are a lot of mitigating factors, obviously, like the population of essential workers and how far away one needs to travel and whatnot, but it’s an interesting site.

Have a safe and spiffy weekend, everyone. See you next week.

I think I sent you the wrong article re: the Illinois grifters. I just watched the video included in the post and it leaves so much out, so so so much. I wonder if they edited it after broadcast, thinking it kind of goes against the #luvtheguv vibe? In any case, here is a better rendition, but it doesn't show the woman who chased after the carpetbaggers yelling, "This is how we do it in Kentucky, baby!"

I think I like it so much because it reminds me of the documentary Harlan County.

Stay well, my friend.
