    My ability to recall lyrics from a song written in the 70's far exceeds my ability to recall why I walked into the kitchen.

    Believe it or not all levels of government have people that actually have to do, well you know, work. I guess rather than government "employees" the term should be government "peons."

    The CDC has been giving out bad and conflicting advice from the start. I heard someone say, 'In other times people were called to go to war.' In our time we're being called to just wait it out on the sofa.'---if you possibly can. What's so hard about that? If things blow over, great. If not and people the heed, the fallout will be much less than if people had just gone on biz as usual.
    I encourage people to be prepared for things but this is ridiculous. Runs on toilet paper? Really? I was just at the store and it was a madhouse. I think there is just too much of an overreaction.

    BTW, I went to the doctor today about a foot injury and while I was there I asked the doc what they thought of the whole coronavirus thing. She said people are overreacting. She also said unless you have immune problems or respiratory problems you really have nothing to worry about.

    First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.

    The mainstream media that have fanned the flames is comprised of corporations that demand a profit. If they can't start a tire fire everyday they wont make the money needed to appease their stockholders. As always at the bottom of it all is MONEY$

    They put me on a “Pandemic” committee at the college where I work. We have a large number of counties in our area, at least 2 have cases. The local University went to “online” classes at 1700 Today. We still haven’t done a thing, and won’t until Monday. My students are EMT and Paramedic students. All have been working EMS, or doing ride time one. So... chances are they have been exposed, I know 4 have. The school knows as well, btw. Still in class, no changes at all “because they wore masks”.
    Yes, they changed the protocol from N95 to respirators today, but we don’t have any for EMS. The state has yet to provide new cartridges for the Gas Masks we were issued in 2003. We still have the ones from 2003 though...
    I’m in SC, so it’s not just Cali

    I see you grasp the subtle nuance of this delicate situation. Thanks, Mr Slippy.

    You were asking a podiatrist about the coronavirus?! That's special.
    I asked my hair stylist and she said... You in danger, girl!
