    When conservatives realize they cannot win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will abandon democracy.

    Of course he'd think that. That is what he'd have done if he was in the position to take advantage of the situation.

    New Yorkers who break social distancing rules will now face fines up to $500

    Populations and densities (per square kilometer):
    • Seoul - 9,733,509 - 16,088
    • Seoul metro area 25,514,000 - 7,325
    • New York City - 8,398,748 - 10,715
    • NYC metro area - 19,979,477 - 579
    • Los Angeles - 3,990,456 - 3,124
    • LA metro area - 13,131,431 - 1,045
    • Chicago - 2,705,994 - 4,572
    • Chicago metro area - 9,533,040 - 339

    List of largest cities - good source of stats

    So NYC is comparable to Seoul.

    I guess anything is "comparable" to anything, but IMHO 579 isn't nearly the same thing as 7325.

    California received "170 broken ventilators" from federal government, governor says

    California Governor Gavin Newsom said the state received "170 broken ventilators" from the federal government's national stockpile in a press conference over the weekend. Many states have been experiencing a shortage of ventilators — a life-saving piece of equipment used to help treat coronavirus patients.

    Newsom explained on Saturday that the ventilators came from the national stockpile "directly" to Los Angeles County. But, "rather than lamenting about it, rather than complaining about it, rather than pointing fingers, rather than generating headlines in order to generate more stress and anxiety," Newsom said the machines are being fixed in-state.

    The machines were brought by truck to a facility operated by green energy company Bloom Energy, according to a press release from Newsom's office. Newsom said the machines were dropped off at 8 a.m. Saturday and will be "back into Los Angeles all fixed" by Monday.

    But Seoul proper has a similar population and somewhat greater population density when compared to NYC proper.
