    I had a very interesting conversation with my B-I-L this evening, regarding hospital capacity and ventilator availability.
    Let me preface this by stating we don’t get along very well (I guess that’s the in-law code), but when it comes to medicine, he is a very successful physician and quite loved/respected by his patients and staff, he has a history of saving patients lives when many of his colleagues didn’t want to take on the high risk.
    He stated that the problem with hospital capacity is because, today, hospitals are run more as profit businesses than care facilities, that most are sized to be 89% filled at all times to make the real estate as profitable as possible – thousands of dollars per square foot, in comparison to businesses like Costco which have huge warehouse-like facilities that are only filled with customers for so many hours per day. And that is the reason why hospitals can so easily be overwhelmed by the current Covid19 cases.
    He also stated that the current rush to manufacture ventilators is ridiculous, not only is there nowhere near enough technicians to run/monitor them, there is nowhere near enough room to install them – the vast majority will sit in warehouses collecting dust.
    Then we joked about how many ventilators will be for sale on Ebay, along with toilet paper in the next few months.
    -Just wanted to share. Be well, my fellow Treepers!

    Okay. All that money everyone was noticing going to the Kennedy Center that was in the Care Act? President Trump appointed Jon Voight and Mike Huckabee as Trustees!

        No – but it does make it move into the oversight of at least two individuals who are very MAGA, very much have the ears of the President, plus there are a total of 10 people of which these two are part of it, that President Trump has nominated so am of the thought that this group will act as the eyes, ears, policing any shenanigans that Pelosi thought they might be able to get away with,

        so then again, in that respect, yes, it makes it a compromise that was needed to get the deal done but oversight the deal makers were not counting on, so maybe not ok but doable.
