    Notable Coronavirus Victims

    Peter Sutcliffe was the first and, so far, only hit due to COVID this year. At least, in terms of official cause of death.

    Kanye West

    It's a play on "Don't Tread On Me," a phrase from the Gadsden flag. It was originally associated with the American Revolutionary War, a variant having been used by the Navy up until last year, but nowadays, it's most heavily associated with libertarians, the Tea Party, and other American right wing anti-government types, in addition to just being a well-known phrase in the North American popular cultural lexicon.

    Political Frailty

    Mimi Soltysik, the Socialist Party USA candidate in the 2016 American presidential election, has passed away aged 45 from liver cancer. He only got a few thousand votes. He's a fringe politician, but he's also the first of the many, many """notable""" (enough to get a Wikipedia page for his candidacy) candidates from the 2016 US Presidential election to pass away from what I can tell. https://www.commondreams.org/views/2020/06/28/interview-mimi-soltysik-1974-2020

    Coronavirus Playlist

    It's a vapid club pop song, but the lyrics "I am on top of the pedestal (Flu shot) / I am so sick I need medical (Puta)" being rapped over a Rhythm of the Night sample is too morbidly hilarious in hindsight not to post here.
