  1. For the benefit of anyone on here who may live south of the Mason Dixon line, Pittsburgh Dad bases his character on his Dad when he was growing up in Pittsburgh and the beer on the top shelf of his refrigerator is Pittsburgh's "Iron City" beer.
  2. The "P.A." after his name refers to "Professional Association" - the Pennsylvania lawyer ads are not that funny
  3. If Trump orders everyone to go back to work - and Wolf orders only essential workers go to work - like Wolf and a number of other Governors have already done - which order prevails - the order from the President or the order from the Governor? Trump of course has the National Emergency Act power to order nationally that non-essential workers must stay home and not go to work - but under what Act could he order that all workers must return to work, especially if a Governor has declared a state of emergency in that state?
  4. Allegheny Patient at Jefferson Hospital 1st fatal covid-19 case in Allegheny County Jacob Tierney And Megan Guza | Saturday, March 21, 2020 11:15 a.m. Email Newsletters TribLIVE's Daily and Weekly email newsletters deliver the news you want and information you need, right to your inbox. Allegheny County recorded its first coronavirus death on Saturday, the second death in the state since Pennsylvania saw its first case two weeks ago. The person was in their late 60s and being treated at Jefferson Hospital, officials said. County Executive Rich Fitzgerald said the family of the deceased asked that officials provide no further information. The death came as the number of positive cases statewide jumped nearly 40% from 268 to 371 in one day. In Allegheny County, health officials reported three new cases, bringing the county total to 31, four of which are hospitalized. “Does that mean we’re heading in the right direction? I don’t know that we can even say that,” Fitzgerald said. “It’s only one day, and it’s a very small sample that we have. We may see some higher results in the days to come.” Dr. Debra Bogen, incoming county health director, said residents shouldn’t feel that social distancing efforts aren’t working because of the increase in positive cases, as there is a lag of five to 10 days. “This number will certainly increase in the coming days, in part because we’re now increasing testing but also because we have community spread in our region,” she said. Bogen and Fitzgerald both urged UPMC to begin to “wind down” elective surgeries and hospital admissions “as much as possible.” Both state and county officials have asked hospitals to halt elective procedures as another avenue to staunch the spread of covid-19. UPMC officials have said that while there is community spread, there is not widespread community transmission, which Dr. John Williams, chief of pediatric infectious diseases, defined as “many people (being) infected with the virus in a community, often in different areas. Matt Brown, chief of county emergency services, said medical facilities, ambulance crews and others involved in mitigating the impact of the virus are in constant communication. “This crisis is very challenging, but we are operating within our lanes as we do for every disaster,” Brown said. He said preparations for the virus began weeks ago, and that included coordinating on the needs of EMS and other medical facilities, “confirming that they were all in good shape and had no … unmet needs.” That includes personal protective equipment like N95 breathing masks. He said the county is still able to procure those materials, and they are able to go to the state or federal government if need be. “That is really what we monitor day to day, hour to hour,” Brown said. Fitzgerald said the county has set up an email address for companies, organizations or individuals who can donate personal protective equipment. “(This) is strictly to try to help make sure that our first responders, our medical professionals and others who are on the front line have some of the protective equipment they need,” he said. Elsewhere in the region, positive cases continued to grow. Butler County had its first reported case Saturday. Westmoreland County’s count remained unchanged at four, while Washington County had two new cases, bringing the total to five. The state’s first coronavirus death was reported Wednesday. The victim, Carmine Fusco, was a resident of Bath, Northampton County. He was one of four members of a New Jersey family who died from covid-19, The New York Times reported. Others who died included his 73-year-old mother and two siblings. Seven family members in total have been sickened by the coronavirus, the paper reported.

  6. World Health Organization confirmed dogs can’t get Corona. Therefore all the quarantined dogs may be released. W.H.O. Let the dogs out.
  7. Nine years ago I was in the process of scheduling a tour of Egypt - it had to be cancelled because of the Revolution. So I waited until things were back to normal and one year ago I scheduled a tour of Egypt departing this Friday - it was cancelled yesterday afternoon because of the Coronavirus. Wondering now if I will ever be able to Walk Like An Egyptian.
  8. I bet there was poo falling from the sky for 4 blocks from that little poo-dle.
  9. I remember the Sunday Edition of the C-E in January more than 10 years ago reported and had photos of large paw prints in the snow at T L and a T L resident who had previously lived in Colorado identified them as being mountain lion paw prints. And I don't think that they were made by the Penn State Nittany Lion mascot.
  10. My prior post shows at :58 the handshake that Trump could have used!
  11. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi broke congressional tradition by introducing President Donald Trump as only "the president of the United States" during the State of the Union address on Tuesday evening. "Members of Congress, the president of the United States," Pelosi said, introducing Trump in front of the joint session of Congress. Previous House speakers have introduced the sitting commander in chief by saying they had the "high privilege and distinct honor of presenting to you the president of the United States." I wonder what kind of expression would have been on Nervous Nancy's face if she had had to stick with congressional tradition?
  12. It was obvious that Trump had told Pence in advance that he would not be shaking hands. If Trump were to offer to shake the hand of Pelosi, especially the night before the impeachment vote, it would be fake on his part. And Pelosi knew he would not be offering to shake her hand since he did not offer to shake the hand of Pence before her. So she tried to put him on the spot by extending her hand - but he did not fall for it. And you could see the frustration building up in her more and more during the speech - and Pelosi had to release all that frustration by tearing up her copy of the speech. Trump was in control of the impeachment battle and he was in control of that room - Pelosi was about to lose the impeachment battle and she lost control of her emotions at the end of the speech. All that made Nervous Nancy get even more nervous.
  13. It looks like PETA has now moved on from Punxy to J.Lo: "But PETA’s problem with the garment had nothing to do with the design or its meaning. The animal advocacy group noted that “This flag could have flown without killing birds.” They used the message to caption a split photo that showed both J.Lo performing in her designer cape and factory workers examining featherless bird carcasses."
