I saw his next HR: Bottom of the 1st, on Opening Day 1978, the Reggie Bar game!

For the record, I ate mine.

The Game 6 blasts:

It might be called a success if you don't care about all of the deaths...

and I suspect that Mr Tegnell doesn't really care all that much, given some of his comments along the way. (He rationalized the deaths being as high as they were at one point because the figures included nursing home deaths. Those pesky old people.)

Right now, Sweden's deaths per 1 million of their population is 152. That is the 11th highest number in the world, per worldometers. (The US number is 121.) They are in the 21st position in the world in terms of the number of cases.

Compared to their immediate neighbors as of April 19, 2020, 18:38 GMT:

Cases - Deaths - Deaths per 1 million
Denmark 7,242 - 346 - 61
Finland 3,681 - 90 - 17
Norway 7,036 - 164 - 30
Sweden 13,822 - 1,511 - 152

Gov Pritzger joins Wellington the penguin (and pals) for a social distancing PSA at Shedd Aquarium

During the coronavirus lockdown, Chicago's Shedd Aquarium has been taking some of their penguins on excursions to other exhibits in the place. They post videos of the trips, in which Wellington, a rockhopper penguin is the breakout star. So the governor decided to recruit him and a few of his roommates in a good cause:


Wellington looks like he's in a permanent state of 'whoa, we're not in Kansas anymore' during these trips!

I'll give this a try..

(Note: For the sake of simplicity, assume that this relates to someone who is entitled to receive (and keep) the full stimulus amount.)

The money that is being sent out relates to a federal action taken in 2020, which they need to put on the books, so to speak. They're going to do that through the income tax filing process for 2020, which actually takes place next year.

So, a tax credit will need to be shown for this item when you do your 2020 tax return, that you file in April 2021, because it was revenue that you received that year. But since you already received this specific cash in 2020, this new tax credit won't generate any more cash being sent to you in 2021 to settle up your 2020 tax return. They don't want people surprised by that. I think that's all this means.

FYI As far as I can tell from looking the tweet referenced, those screenshots are not coming from any federal government documentation. I saw at least 2 different sources being suggested in the tweet replies. So the paraphrasing by the source may be the problem.
