    Not only do I know zero people who have died from COVID, I donít know a single person who has/had a confirmed case of it.

    I think one of my coworkers had it (she had most of the symptoms), and Iím not sure I didnít have it back in January, but no one with a confirmed case.

    Apparently 11 people in my town of 20,000 or so have died, and they all lived in the nursing home.

    That's why I asked him where he lived. I already knew.

    I can't speak for RKC's intent. But I can respond to your plea for "unity." As I already said, rural people prefer to be left alone. But urban voters in the US elect True Progressive Believers whose interests and passions and goals are inimical to many of the values rural people hold dear. At least in Illinois, the lockdown of churches has not been opposed by urban pastors and churches. But several rural pastors and congregants have attempted to bring suit or get restraining orders against the rule by executive edict that should have been done by the legislative branch.

    I'll take you at your word when you say YOU don't go to the ballot box to elect officials and representatives that intend to screw over rural people. But you do elect those who represent your own interests. Which often as not, come at the expense of rural life. After all, why should you have any interest in voting for someone who has concerns about hog or milk production distribution or infrastructure? That's just one example. People vote their interests. Elections have consequences.

    My grandmother is in Barnegat. 87 years old, I think. She's been doing her grocery shopping and stopping at McDonald's for coffee for weeks now. She has 4 arteries over 85% blocked. I don't think she gives one flying fuck about the virus. She's living what's left of her life unafraid. I'm very proud of her.

    My mother and step father tested positive. However, neither of us or anyone that we personally know have died from it. The only report that I heard was that my friend's college buddy in NJ lost his 87 year old father to it. To his credit, he owned and operated diners his entire life and decided to keep working, which I can respect.

    I'm in North NJ (Morris) and contracted it myself in mid-March. I've heard several people at work got it as well although don't know who they are.
