    I sure they’ll find something to do to pass the time in paradise.

    Wow! An answer to COVID-19. Drown it.

    This is what you get with a Journalism degree and not an ounce of common sense or self-awareness:

    “the Maldives, a nation composed of more than a thousand tiny, idyllic islands in the Indian Ocean, like a trail of smashed crystals scattered on a slab of blue glass. ”

    That’s two examples of “turgid prose” cited here on realclimatescience.com in less than 36 hours. It’s an epidemic – no! wait a minute! – a PAN-DUMB-IC that is digesting the scant gray matter between the ears of international journalists.

    Clearly, it’s worse than we thought!

    Are they mocking all those who are using masks? Certainly looks like it to me. Quick twitter mobs, they need to be doxed and shamed!

    Lucky them. I was in Bali just recently and enjoying uncrowded waves but got home (Perth) just before they closed the beaches there. Now serving enforced solitary confinement (thanks Aus Gov) for 2 weeks. 6 days to go before liberty!
    Keep up the good work Tony.

    Why would anyone want to go somewhere that the locals admit is full of unsavory and decrepit businesses? I avoid even run of the mill dives.
