Speaking of stupid, the Republican governor of Georgia Brian Kemp said he
didn't issue a stay at home order for everybody in his state until
yesterday because he didn't know until yesterday that somebody could spread
COVID-19 without showing any symptoms of being sick! Twelve states still
haven't issued stay at home orders and every one of then has a Republican
governor. And stupidity is killing people.
