I’m gonna get all anecdotal on your asses now to just demonstrate how much trouble this panic has been causing. Some homeless guy with his (pretty-nice, blue) scooter was sitting next to a church in our neighborhood. Me and my 8 y/o boy (me on roller-blades on the road and he on a bike on the sidewalks) passed him one way, then 30 minutes later were on the other side of the street coming toward him. My son would have passed 5 or 6 ft from where he was hanging out.
The guy started yelling loud as he could at me about us being too close, and “you can’t take a kid around, you’re tryin’ to kill me, get away!” or some such stuff. I wasn’t gonna take that and got on the sidewalk rolling toward him and telling him to shut the hell up. (We’d have been glad to go way around, but I’m not gonna take abuse like that.) He threatened to kick my ass, and I’m not at all a big guy, but I kept on coming.
The guy got on his scooter, as I was I telling him to f-off and such. Then he turned around 75 yards away and came at me in a game of chicken, he on the scooter and me on rollerblades, passed within 1 foot of me (apparently forgetful of the R0 data), as I tried to grab a sleeve to dump his crazy ass onto the road.
Then, I started rollerblading down the road after him in this neighborhood, let’s call it “Crestview” or something, just for fun, and, see now here’s the part that I just know blogger Steve Sailer would have liked, had I had been just a little bit quicker. I yelled “get out of Crestview” but without the “…Lebowski!” Opportunities like that don’t come often.
Yes, he was mentally ill, but all this hysteria had not helped that man one bit. Me neither.
This poor homeless guy really seemed to be under the impression that this Kung Flu is just like the Black Plague*. Where has this guy gotten his Coronhysteria ("Corona hysteria"?) from? IThe public libraries have been closed for a while so it's not from the internet there. It must be wherever he sees the idiot plate hanging, I guess - this Infotainment Panic-Fest has been on the air continuously for 6 weeks, on all channels. I just met a big fan today.
* BTW, I can't tell if some families whose houses we stopped by to say hello really got and appreciated the joke when I yelled from outside "bring out your dead". Not EVERYONE is a Monty Python fan.
