Appearances (That Will Not Be Happening)


March 13th, 2020 Posted 7:58 am

Due to coronavirus precautions, next Wednesday’s Southington Reads appearance has been canceled, with the possibility of moving it to a later date. Same with Book Mania in Florida, March 27-28. Maybe when things are back to normal we’ll find there’s been an uptick in book reading during this time.


Coronavirus and the Nation Within

Way too early to know the implications – if any – of this story, but something to keep an eye on. As for the total picture – something we’re totally unqualified to comment on – we are keeping calm. Partly because not keeping calm usually has a bad outcome, but mostly because we suspect the mortality rate is low. To calculate it they divide the number of deaths (probably a fairly accurate stat) by the number of cases – and that number has to be much larger than the number they’re using, for several reasons: some people are infected but asymptomatic and therefore unreported; some have mild cases and think it’s flu or a cold; some are afraid to identify themselves; some are known but unreported due to government incompetence or conniving. But the point: the bigger the divisor, the lower the mortality rate. Just the thoughts of a know-little – feel free to ignore.
