THE GOVERNOR SPOKE LAST NIGHT And it was a hopeful upbeat message, even as he was extending our statewide state at home order to April 26th. Watch it.
The Governor will hold a Town Hall tonight on 9News and you should watch it.
YES, WE CAN ASK IF WHAT'S HAPPENING IN CONSTITUTIONAL Constitutional scholar and Independence Institute Fellow Rob Natelson has been asking of the actions being taken by the Governor are actually Constitutional in columns like this one. We're talking about it today at 1. By the way, the conversation should not be construed as a discussion about whether or not staying at home is the RIGHT thing to do, just about whether or not the government has the authority to ORDER us to stay home. Big difference.
CAN GUNNISON COUNTY EVEN LOCK PEOPLE UP FOR STOPPING BY? First off, I totally understand the reason behind this order from Gunnison County. They have issued a public health order forbidding any non-residents from being there. If you disobey, you can be fined up to $5000 or spend 18 months in jail. For visiting.
THIS IS EXACTLY WHY YOU WILL NEVER HEAR ME TALKING ABOUT COVID 19 MODELS Someone sent me a model yesterday that was utterly terrifying in it's predictions and asked why I didn't share things like that. THIS article is why. Three models, three different inputs, three different outcomes. Maybe my personal experience with hurricane modeling has made me skeptical of the whole lot, but I just can't get consumed by models.
REMEMBER THE GUY WHO PAID EVERYONE 70 GRAND A YEAR? It was at Gravity Payments in Washington state when CEO Dan Price slashed his own million dollar salary in order to pay everyone what he believed was a living wage. Such kindness does not go unnoticed apparently. Now that the economy is reeling, his company was losing money hand over fist (like so many others) so he turned to his own employees to figure out a way to survive. They voted to cut their own pay. Some are going without pay. What a story. This company must be a great place to work.

TO THE GUY WHO SAYS WE AREN'T IN LOCKDOWN, PLEASE EXPLAIN WHY A DAD WAS CUFFED FOR THROWING A BALL Because it certainly feels like we are in a "lockdown" when three police officers cuff and place a man in the back of the squad car in front of his six year old daughter and wife for throwing a ball at a park. He wasn't arrested but what was the point? This is exactly why I'm talking to Rob Natelson today.
THE WHITE HOUSE BRIEFINGS ARE GETTING TESTY here is yesterday's.
EVEN PANDAS ARE USING THEIR TIME IN ISOLATION WISELY And two giant pandas in Hong Kong have FINALLY HAD SEX after living together and trying to mate unsuccessfully for over ten years. And you thought your love life was bad.
DUDE. This is really cool and super scary because if they can make Hillary Clinton into Hannibal Lecter what else can they do? Check out this deep fake video of Hillary in Silence of the Lambs. Jodie Foster does say the C word at the end, if you're sensitive to such things.
AND NOW, A PASSOVER GREETING FROM THE ISRAEL SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
COULD THE BASEBALL SEASON TAKE PLACE IN ARIZONA? That is one of the options that was discussed yesterday during a phone call between the players union and Major League Baseball. There are other things on the table, but moving all the teams to Arizona to play there in front of empty stands was one option.
THIS SEVEN YEAR OLD IS COMPOSING MUSIC DURING THE PANDEMIC And this one is for people suffering because of the Coronavirus isolation.

THE TIGER KING'S TIGER ARE RIGHT HERE IN COLORADO A bunch of the rescued big cats shown in the Netflix hit Tiger King live right here in Colorado. If you loved the show, maybe throw the Wildlife Sanctuary, which is incredible, a few bucks to take care of the cats. Donate to them here, and read more about the cats and how they got here in this article. I'm having the Executive Director on Thursday.
