Tweedledee, Tweedledum and Tweedledumber

DeBlasio And Cuomo Blindly Follow Murphy, Nix Restaurant Indoor Dining

Because Cases Are Spiking At The Other Ends Of The Country

New York City will not allow indoor dining to resume next week as originally scheduled due to growing coronavirus outbreaks in other parts of the country, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Wednesday.

“We see a lot of problems and we particularly see problems revolving around people going back to bars and restaurants indoors. Indoors is the problem more and more, the science is showing it more and more,” de Blasio said at a press briefing.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Monday he would consider delaying the city’s reopening of indoor dining areas and would make a final decision on Wednesday. The governor is scheduled to hold a press briefing later.

De Blasio said outdoor dining, which was allowed to open on June 22, has “unquestionably” been a great hit and “outdoors has been working.” The city will allow its beaches and some outdoor pools to reopen starting Wednesday, he said.

The percentage of people testing positive in the city has remained steady at around 2%, which is a “very very good number,” de Blasio said. The figure has remained below the city’s threshold of 15% since early May.

New York has allowed regions of the state to reopen in phases. New York City is expected to begin its “Phase 3” reopening on Monday.

Personally, I don’t buy it. This smacks of punishment for even thinking about not obeying their almighty authority. And I’m getting really tired of it. Who wants to bet that fellow tyrant Wolfe over in PA does the same thing next?

Remember how the whole point of the lockdown was to flatten the curve, to delay the onset in as many other places for as long as possible? It wasn’t to prevent anyone from catching it ever. Well, that delay happened. And now it’s those other places’ turns.

I’m sorry for them, but I doubt that their cases came from people visiting from the former hotspots, and I doubt that their spikes came from a few hundred young folks going out to bars for a night. But it might be very insightful to see who it is who is getting sick now, and whether they were some of the thousands involved in any of those massive protests (a question these contact tracers are NOT allowed to ask), or if they just got back from a trip to Mexico (or just snuck over the border from there). And let’s get some age data for a change too ... because if the vast majority of these new cases turn out to be healthy people under 45 years old, then STFU. They’re in the really low risk zone, and 99% of them will be better in a week or two.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
