The Editor:  Is this hard times, LL ?

Answer Cat:  It is hard times for the people with the Wuhan Flu.  Most who die have other health complications.  It’s part of life, but still sad.  Mostly it is an inconvenience and problems caused by the closing of America.

Here are some people who had hard times.  They kept the dream alive so America could get better.  This is/was the greatest generation.

These people had some hard times.  Kids in these photos were fighting in the first video. Click to get started.

America’s new job is to restore our economy.  We aren’t going to the moon or building a railroad, this is more important.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Eye on the Milky Way

Explanation: Have you ever had stars in your eyes? It appears that the eye on the left does, and moreover it appears to be gazing at even more stars. The featured 27-frame mosaic was taken last July from Ojas de Salar in the Atacama Desert of Chile. The eye is actually a small lagoon captured reflecting the dark night sky as the Milky Way Galaxy arched overhead. The seemingly smooth band of the Milky Way is really composed of billions of stars, but decorated with filaments of light-absorbing dust and red-glowing nebulas. Additionally, both Jupiter (slightly left the galactic arch) and Saturn (slightly to the right) are visible. The lights of small towns dot the unusual vertical horizon. The rocky terrain around the lagoon appears to some more like the surface of Mars than our Earth.
