Still Sick

Grr. We thought we had this figured out, then it kept right on going. At this point, about 60% of my skin is covered in lesions and this sucks. Tryanmax's Pharaoh joke wasn't that far off, though I'm pretty sure I'm not holding any group of people hostage in my basement.

I saw an interesting thing on ratings today. I've pointed out before that the NBA ratings falling as much as 50% meant people had rejected their woke stance. The leftist media bent over backwards to claim this wasn't the case, coming up with all kinds of BS ideas. There was no reduction in ratings... uh, yes, there was. This was the result of a Presidential election stealing eyes! Too much competition from, uh, reruns. It's Covid, no one cares about sports, all sports are down. You'll see, the NFL will crash too.

Well, the NFL is down all of 6%. It was down 15% in 2006 during the last election. So the election was not an issue. The NFL didn't go woke either. It pretended around the edges and then didn't, so don't believe this means people now like woke things.
What's more, it was already about as woke as it got because of the kneeling thing. So it makes sense that 6% is the Covid drop.

So why did the NBA suffer a 50% drop? It's best teams played a really exciting tournament. It's top viewed teams were in it and competitive. It's stars all played. It's next level had break out stars. This thing should have gone up, even with Covid depression. But it fell 50%. That's societal judgment on their politics. The question becomes now, can they recover?  I'm thinking not and I'm looking forward to the financial punishment to follow as profits crash.

As an aside, I will start writing again soon. Kind of tough at the moment, but I will. I'm seeing a lot of interesting things about the war between moderate Dems and the Democratic future. Things will be ugly.

Hope you're doing well!

Sorry to hear you're suffering so much. Here's hoping it clears up for you soon.

Oh, how miserable! I'm sorry you are still sick after all this time. I'll be praying for recovery to come soon and be complete. I hope you can enjoy the holidays and have a merry Christmas.

Thanks. At this point, I just wish I knew what it was. Fortunately, I think I found the right doctors. They brought in the whole team and started strategizing about how to figure out what it could be and then they ran a billion tests. So we'll see!

Thanks, Stacy. It's been so strange. It was strep then something else then a small rash and now this. In the meantime, I've been packed full of antibiotics, steroids and you name it, but nothing seems to work. I guess we'll see. At least the last round of steroids has reduced the pain. It was pretty intolerable for a while (in a literal sense), but it's down to about 6/10 right now.

Huey Andrew, gee that sounds really tough, and I am so sorry you are going through it. Yeah AOC is down on Biden big time. NBA has always bored me. I think guys like LeBron have hurt them. college basketball so much more interesting than NBA. Thanks to the Trump administration and private pharma for operation warp,speed. It may not be a panacea ... there is a reason it takes so long for approval, but under the circumstances, it’s a start

Stopped in to see if there were any updates. I hope you are doing better.
