Deep behind the corn curtain life is very quiet. The University shut down, and the governor of IL has us on lockdown. It turns out that he is quite impressive and seems to be up on all aspects of the situation. The mayor of Chicago has become a sort of folk hero with memes of her shutting down the town all over FB. I'm finishing my second book on the years that the bubonic plague hit the City in the early 1900s. It confirms Twain's statement that while history does not repeat itself, it sure does rhyme. Ironically, this time it seems that the City's leadership got it right unlike the folks down in DC. see Black Death at the Golden Gate: The Race to Save America from the Bubonic Plague and The Barbary Plague: The Black Death in Victorian San Francisco
