I had a dental appointment today, and I give enormous respect to the dentists and the dental assistants who are continuing to work. No matter what precautions they take, they'll be at high risk of getting sick.

I had an appointment last week that ended up getting moved two months, but if it hadn't I was thinking of asking them if I should postpone. Regular checkups (while it wouldn't bother me in particular) seem unnecessary under the circumstances.

Over 860,000 Americans have already voted, compared to fewer than 10,000 at this point in 2016

Voting matters, every single fucking time.

Depends on what you mean. Unless you live in a really small town your single vote is highly unlikely to decide any given election at that level or higher.

Admittedly, however, all the people who might think that way can make a significant difference in any given election (witness the difference between voters on a presidential election vs state-only).

There’s also voting trends that make a vote feel useless. Take my state, NJ, which has consistently voted Democrat in every presidential election since HW’s 1st run.* That means not only is my vote likely not to matter, but even in the highly unlikely event that NJ goes say 50/45 popular majority, still all 14 electoral votes will go Democrat and my vote still literally won’t be reflected.

*Ironically, we have a high number of Republican governors which just shows that in my state (as with many others) voters can’t be bothered except once every four years despite the fact that most experts will tell you that political power most affects your day-to-day life the closer it is to you.

Melania Trump reportedly refused to leave Covid-19 isolation in order to keep from infecting Secret Service agents

Quote:
Melania Trump did not visit the president in hospital because she didn't want to expose Secret Service agents to the risk of coronavirus, according to reports.

Quoting an anonymous White House official, NBC News reported the first lady remained in isolation on the weekend over concerns of spreading the Covid-19 infection.

"She has Covid," the official told NBC News on Saturday. "That would expose the agents who would drive her there and the medical staff who would walk her up to him."

Ms Trump tweeted her support for medical staff and caretakers on Monday morning as she gave an update on her condition, saying she will continue to rest at home...

I wonder how many of Trump's supporters will read that and think highly of the First Lady, while totally missing the fact that, intentional or not, this is an obvious rebuke of the behavior of her husband, who apparently thought nothing of exposing the people involved in driving him around outside the hospital so he could soak up the adulation from his adoring fans.
