Re: The new constitutional vote and the social crisis

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

American public continues to be selfish. Man flying while sick with a pending corona virus test. Before landing, results came back positive. No matter what governments do (except China’s prison-like system), people will infect others and essentially not care. https://www.cnn.com/travel/amp/jetblue-p...

Re: junking an old car

So I still have the car. About a half hour ago, 2 guys showed up asking about it. They didn't speak much English, and I don't speak much Spanish. But I think they said they could tow it away.

Re: Corona Virus!

The other one I don't get is why contact tracing has not entered the digital age. U.s. spent trillions of dollars to chase handful of guys with ak-47s living in caves, and that tech is not being applied to this problem?
