  1. Lifting the lockdown doesn’t mean that the party is ending. It means the party is just getting started.

    And we have barely even started on the second- and third-order effects of this thing. I cannot for the life of me figure out why anybody thinks that 24,000+ is a good number for the Dow.

    I mean, if you want to stop doing these, I’m not going to complain. But there’s still tons of fun yet to be had from King Flu. I still read them.
