    I love some good chi, we have a "decent" all you can eat here, but 180 miles to Alb there are a few great ones, I'm told. When I go to Albuqurqee I usually have other food.
    No offense intended, but when I am in Alb-a-turkey, I am eating "New Mexican" or BBQ. They may have a better Chinatown than San Francisco, but I would never know it. I ONLY eat "New Mexican" and BBQ there.

    There is a New Mexican place right outside one of the gates for Kirtland AFB. I do not know the name of it, but I know how to find it. It is some kind of fixture in ABQ. The place looks like a dive from the outside, but inside it looks like a fine dining place from 1978. But, my God, their food is OUTSTANDING! If you want, I can look up the name as I keep all my old receipts from past trips and I have at least a dozen from this place.

    Fox news is reporting the FBI has ordered $40G in hand sanitizer and facemasks. I think if we see additional government agencies starting to stock up we can then assume things are starting to get ‘real’.

    If $40G is $40,000, that’s less than $1000 per state........ small potatoes! But! What do they really know?

    Is anyone doing anything about that liberal virus? That's the real killer.

    Alright.. I don’t get it. When this first started I thought the worst... now I’m reading that this virus is no more deadly or even less so, than the flu. Naturally I didn’t trust the chicom reporting and reports of cremations in china were bothersome but now that the virus is world wide and being studied I would have anticipate some “truth” to come out. Well... I’m waiting.

    But again what I’m reading from publications around the world is that despite the probably unwarranted panic and quarantines, the death rate is still less than or about equal to the flu.

    So what’s with the big deal and panic quarantining around the world. As the meme says... convince me.

    I’ve seen some articles that claim this virus is very fast mutating and that it is possible to get reinfected with a mutated strain after beating the initial virus. The chinese doctor that originally sounded the alarm died of an alleged reinfection. He was in his early 30s. The mutated strains are supposed to be more deadly to younger people that the original. Problem is that the chinese have most of the data and they ain’t sharing! I’ve stated it before, China didn’t quarantine 50 million people and shutter 1000s of businesses over the flu.

    Right, and watch what they're doing not what they're saying. I'd bet the WHO will declare it a pandemic soon and there will be many, many, more cases in the US in the next few months.

    Personally, we've started using hand sanitizer religiously after shopping and being mindful not to touch our face. Had to swap out the little alcohol squeeze bottles I kept in the trucks for the larger 8 oz pump ones. Have N95 and surgical masks, but if it actually gets bad enough that it's time to wear them in public, I'll just lock the gates and stay at home until it blows over instead.

    Good practice against flu too.. which, unless some staggering truth come out the next few weeks, is more deadly than this virus.

    The dilemma with all of this is that there is zero independent scientific corroboration for any of this. So far, antidotal.. and only antidotal.. evidence from other counties (SK, Iran, Italy, US) indicate a mortality rate less than or equal the flu.

    Now, we may see, over the next month or so, that evidence and a declaration of it’s severity re: death rate, but for now, I wouldn’t hold my breath over it. Yeah, be safe, be prepared, follow the reports and look for independent scientific corroboration.

    I do agree with the observation about why the chicoms would quarantine 50mm people if its so mild. However it could be a result of how they handles the SARS outbreak.. on didn’t handle might be a better description.

    Current mortality numbers are only accurately based on numbers of deaths outside of china. We have no idea how many have actually died in china cause the chicoms lie! OK, consider this. The virus gas been raging inside china for 1 to 2 months longer than it’s been in other countries. Before we believe the published 2% mortality rate, lets see what the death rate is in the USA in a couple of months.

    This morning it is being reported that there are serious outbreaks of the virus in Italy and South Korea and they can’t identify the sources. S Korea has gone to “code red” and is giving local authorities the green light to close down mass transit, public gatherings and quarantine whole villages. Italy has closed schools and colleges.

    Again....... no government takes these steps for the flu. We are not being told the truth about this virus!

    hand washing is more important than the masks...
