Did Cobb get that new coroner's office built or are they still working our of the trailer in the parking lot of the E911 building? I assume Feckless Kemp must have prioritized it and got it both started and finished before he reactivated the viral spread of the virus. Right? Right?!?!? Wait wait wait, I have the perfect solution: Tucker Frump and Feckless Kemp can both pardon the Tri-State Crematory guy, and we can send all our corpses to Tri-State. Problem: Solved!

More than 4000 new cases today reported in Georgia.

Day 151 and Kemp does nothing.

Your facts come from but you lack figures. Miss JoAnne and her fact fanboy won't take this seriously without figures! But at least they say they might potentially be convinced, unlike Tucker Frump and Feckless Kemp It'd be nice to use the sliding last 2 weeks numbers to extrapolate unknown/unconfirmed cases (10x?) and come up with a probability that a random person you encounter might be positive. My guess for that in Cobb is about 1 in 10 currently. Given that number and the Pert Shampoo level of viral spread, we might all have had it by fall!
