Scooby Doo: Mystery Incorporated

I’m pretty full up on pandemic misery, fires, catastrophic flooding, murder hornets, earthquakes, and other biblical signs of the encroaching End Times, so let’s talk about something else today.

I spent the past weekend and part of this week binging Scooby Doo: Mystery Incorporated, the 2010-2013 Scooby cartoon, and, um. Well. That was a thing I did. Not sure it was a good thing?

Pandemic Notes: 5/19/20

An impressive swath of Michigan is underwater this morning – much of it in the area where I used to live and where my friends and family mostly still live.

The US has suffered 80,000 known, confirmed deaths from COVID-19. That’s 80,000 dead in about three and a half months. More, actually, because we’re undercounting and under-reporting COVID-19 deaths all over America.

Despite that absolutely appalling number, MAGA cultists protest over stay home orders. Governors in red states insist on ending stay home orders in an attempt to curry favor with the mad king we elected president.

Notes below. Updates through the day.
