  1. TN average daily Covid deaths: We're back up approaching the ranges during the worst days, but nobody seems to really notice much. Guess because Omicron is so much less lethal, it could be so much worse if we were still mainly facing Delta, or some such sentiment. State health dept has made a change, and I don't know exactly what that entails. As of 2/5/22, they ceased daily totals in the main database available, and are now just posting a running "last week" daily average (which is 65, but only for "Weekly Summary: 01/30/22 - 02/05/22". So in short, dunno if data is going to be precisely available for entire month from here on out, we'll see. (2020) March 0.7 (first death 3/21/20 but averaged over entire month) April 5.8 May 5.3 June 8.0 July 14.7 Aug 22.5 Sept 23.2 Oct 29.0 Nov 41.9 Dec 74.3 (2021) Jan 88.4 Feb 62.8 Mar 15.9 Apr 9.7 May 8.1 June 3.8 July 5.9 Aug 25.0 Sept 56.3 Oct 37.0 Nov 27.4 Dec 50.4 * (2022) Jan 60.6 total TN deaths thru 2/5/22: 23,029 * TDH announced that the State Medical Examiner had determined that 2,499 deaths where Covid-19 was listed on death certificate as a contributing cause of death should be added to the TDH total. The bulk of those (2174) were added today (12/22/21). So for the 22nd, I only used the average of the other 30 days of the month. (No mention of when/if the remaining 325 deaths were added, so really, the Dec stat is overall a bit more "iffy" than usual. - OS
  2. See note regarding Dec totals at end. The Tennessee Medical Examiner threw a curve into things: TN average daily Covid deaths: (2020) March 0.7 (first death 3/21/20 but averaged over entire month) April 5.8 May 5.3 June 8.0 July 14.7 Aug 22.5 Sept 23.2 Oct 29.0 Nov 41.9 Dec 74.3 (2021) Jan 88.4 Feb 62.8 Mar 15.9 Apr 9.7 May 8.1 June 3.8 July 5.9 Aug 25.0 Sept 56.3 Oct 37.0 Nov 27.4 Dec 50.4 * total TN deaths thru 12/31/21: 20,881 * "TDH announced that the State Medical Examiner had determined that 2,499 deaths where Covid-19 was listed on death certificate as a contributing cause of death should be added to the TDH total. The bulk of those (2174) were added today (12/22/21)." So for the 22nd, I only used the average of the other 30 days of the month. No mention of when/if the remaining 325 deaths of that addition were added, so really, the Dec stat is overall a bit more "iffy" than usual, and only the total official death count reflects that large addition. - OS
  3. Sad if so, thanks in advance for checking. - OS
  4. Whose been to a Ktown gun show last couple times around? Does the unique feller with the unique Luger display still come? (have a friend who'd love to see that and talk to him). - OS
  5. Federal (or TN) law has not changed in that regard. As ever, you must not "know or have reasonable cause to believe" the buyer is a prohibited person (for all the various reasons). If it can be proven you violated that, certainly you can spend some significant prison time and big fine. No BOS required, although many sellers prefer that. - OS
  6. 480 TN Covid deaths first week of Dec. By far, the largest weekly death total here since the third week of January back during the height of this whole shebang. - OS
  7. I'm a right leaning centrist, and an American patriot -- and would fight to prove it. Though seems if it comes to that, I'll have to be shooting in more than one direction, - OS
  8. Well, that's certainly conclusive. Roosters believe they cause the sun to rise. After all, somewhere one is always crowing at daybreak. So, all the Conservatives who have taken it are actually Libs? Including hiz own eminence DJT? - OS
  9. Largely debunked, including by Indian government itself. One of many overviews: https://www.politifact.com/factchecks/2021/nov/12/facebook-posts/no-scientific-basis-claims-ivermectins-success-utt/ - OS
  10. The good news for November: daily death average still falling since latest surge max in September Bad news: more deaths in last two days of month than in any full week, and more even than that in first two days of Dec, so that doesn't seem to bode well. Nov 1-7 182 Nov 8-14 127 Nov 15-21 178 Nov 22-28 142 Nov 29-30 195 Dec 1-2 203 TN average daily Covid deaths: (2020) March 0.7 (first death 3/21/20 but averaged over entire month) April 5.8 May 5.3 June 8.0 July 14.7 Aug 22.5 Sept 23.2 Oct 29.0 Nov 41.9 Dec 74.3 (2021) Jan 88.4 Feb 62.8 Mar 15.9 Apr 9.7 May 8.1 June 3.8 July 5.9 Aug 25.0 Sept 56.3 Oct 37.0 Nov 27.4 total TN deaths thru 12/2/21: 17,399 - OS
  11. So, in this latest surge, Oct well less than the Sept peak. TN average daily Covid deaths: (2020) March 0.7 (first death 3/21/20 but averaged over entire month) April 5.8 May 5.3 June 8.0 July 14.7 Aug 22.5 Sept 23.2 Oct 29.0 Nov 41.9 Dec 74.3 (2021) Jan 88.4 Feb 62.8 Mar 15.9 Apr 9.7 May 8.1 June 3.8 July 5.9 Aug 25.0 Sept 56.3 Oct 37.0 total TN deaths thru 11/5/21: 16,509 - OS
  12. Henry Fonda, Clark Gable, Jimmy Stewart, James Cagney, Spencer Tracy, Marlon Brando, Humphrey Bogart, Gary Cooper, Gregory Peck, too many more to mention. Matter of fact, seems most of the male top stars of the 30s-60's went by their birth names. - OS
  13. Dunno how long he'd had the multiple myeloma, but it's basically a 6ish year death sentence, with plenty of misery on the journey -- and yes both the disease and the treatment make you uber vulnerable to all types of infections that most folks even of the same age would just shrug off. (My dad died of it, and actually lasted about 8 years from diagnosis). - OS
  14. Looks like we may have peaked on this wave last month. Small consolation to those and the loved ones of those who are still croaking daily, eh? Weekly TN Covid deaths: Sept 1-7 286 Sept 8-14 421 Sept 15-21 453 Sept 22-28 423 Sept 29-30 107 Oct 1-7 353 Oct 8-14 247 - OS
  15. Which was originally exposed by Oliver North and Chris Cox (among other board members serving at that time), after they gave Wayne a chance to resign before revealing; of course I give North and Cox beacoup more credence than Wayne baby. But Wayne was able to pull together enough of a coalition among other board members who can be summed up, as LBJ once stated, "I never trust a man unless I've got his pecker in my pocket." - OS
  16. I've been doing much the same for a couple of years, including to all ILA stuff which used to get the brunt of my bucks. Endowment member, btw. - OS
  17. How long will it take for most everyone in the state to have survived Covid, gotten the vax, or died from it? TN average daily Covid deaths: (2020) March 0.7 (first death 3/21/20 but averaged over entire month) April 5.8 May 5.3 June 8.0 July 14.7 Aug 22.5 Sept 23.2 Oct 29.0 Nov 41.9 Dec 74.3 (2021) Jan 88.4 Feb 62.8 Mar 15.9 Apr 9.7 May 8.1 June 3.8 July 5.9 Aug 25.0 Sept 56.3 total TN deaths thru 10/3/21: 15,323 - OS
  18. I got both the Pfizer booster and the Super Duper Geezer Flu shots today. All good so far cept noticed after I got home that the young lass at Kroger put the wrong label on my CDC card, sigh. - OS
  19. Well hell, one could even contract covid itself and get the vax before symptoms show. It takes a while for the vax to kick in, and I don't think there's valid research to show whether it actually can help cure a current case or not. - OS
  20. That's miles off the bell curve -- y'all confirmed something else isn't going on coincidentally to getting the vax? - OS
  21. Seems that usually suggests a handgun and/or lesser caliber. But ya never know from early reporting. - OS
  22. Currently the official policy recommendation and getting coverage on national gnus. Just one coverage out of many for anyone who didn't already know: https://tennesseelookout.com/2021/09/21/state-saving-monoclonal-antibodies-for-the-unvaccinated/ - OS
  23. Recently switched to the Hellcat after carrying a Kahr PM9 for about ten years, in Alabama pocket holster. - OS
