COVID and the Death of Common Sense

Dennis Prager tells of one time he heard the news outlets warning of a huge blizzard. He left for his destination early, allowing plenty of time.

No blizzard. He got to his destination with lots of time to spare. When he asked people at the hotel, they all knew there was a huge blizzard on the way. Because the news outlets trumped what they saw looking out the window.

(John Hinderaker) Why are so many panicked over the Wuhan flu, a relatively minor disease? Of course, COVID can be deadly, like virtually all diseases, but if you are 25 or under it is less lethal than an average seasonal flu, and it is overwhelmingly the very elderly and infirm who are at risk.

Multiple Myeloma Cure Cloud

This summer, the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation started a project called the Cure Cloud. Patients with the disease can create an account in the website and sign up to have a “liquid biopsy” performed. This doesn’t replace the traditional process of sucking bone marrow out of your pelvic bone, since it’s a presence/absence test. But it does let researchers characterize the patient’s chromosomal aberrations.

This information is then matched with the patient’s course of treatment, and helps researchers determine what treatments work best on which aberrations. This supports what’s known as “precision medicine”.

I opened my account and sent in my consent for the blood draw, and hope this will lead to a cure. That would be nice.

For myself would be even nicer.
