Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

The other thing we have been making a point to do is get out and do some things with the family, while we are in the middle of a relatively safe eye of the storm. Took the kids to ski last weekend, we had some small parties with friends and family, and we contracted a private cooking class for just ...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

In one of the most Covid-aware cities in the US this is not happening. No requests for recent contacts, if t...

Re: Forthcoming Presidential Elections

Interesting point in that article about how the center has disappeared from the voting booth, as it is the ideological extremists of the right and left that tend to be motivated to show-up with a voluntary vote.

perhaps the voluntary vote is where chile took a wrong turn.
