For a global event, they should have used GMT, there are large parts of the world where 8PM Est is a silly time. 1AM UK, 2AM Paris, 4AM Egypt, 8AM Perth Aus. For example 3pm GMT = 10AM Est, 6PM Egypt, 10PM Perth Aus

It's almost as if the entertainers, performers, ball players, etc realize they have no actual value in society unless they keep their "brand" going.

While folks like first responders, Nurses, Doctors, grocery store workers, bus drivers, and all the other people who get paid squat to prop up society just keep running to the danger and keep getting paid squat.

And guess what happens when it's all over? They'll keep getting paid squat. After the hospitals empty out, and the trains are running again, and there's no shortage of TP, or someone to pick up grandmom at the morgue there's space in now. They'll forget. they always do.

And GaGa will wow us with another meat dress, or something with the virus printed on it it at an awards show like any of these people are really important to the day to day functioning of society. Like they ever were.

Like anyone is crying a river over Kobe Bryant NOW. Now that 76,000 people have died world wide in 3 months.

Together at home. Yeah, real nice. Life's REALLY HARD in your multi million dollar palace.

These people don't really care. It's the same self serving tripe as always. Gotta keep the spotlight on them...
