    Exactly what is the logic, with police refusing to answer other listed calls, of forcing them INTO close contact with people to stop HAVING CLOSE CONTACT? (not yelling, just emphasis).

    They closed the freaking park, which is right next to the police station, in our little burg. Many of our residents are in overpriced, low income subsidized apartments. The one thing they need is to get out in the open sunshine from their cages.

    As this progresses, how many suicides will we find in isolation?
    Next up will be the lawyers going to town. You caused my client harm by (fill in the blank). You caused harm by NOT doing (fill in the blank).
    I haven’t laid off any of my people. Just waiting to see what is going to happen to rates as the state dives into recovery. And the health Insurance actuaries are probably spinning circles trying to figure out how to quantify this.

    I heard the president during one of his press conferences just the other day, saying that they are working on a way to ensure that everyone can go to national parks, so that they can go outside and enjoy nature, while the covid virus is still causing the quarantine. But knowing that the governor is trying to stop people from hitting the state parks, while the national parks are looking to open, makes you wonder who will win. Especially since California has the most national parks of any state with 13.

    Why not? Welding the doors shut worked for the Chicoms.

    Sure the multi-use trails around here are getting a real workout. Our taxes pay for them and we’re all getting fresh air and exercise. Not acceptable. Might stay healthy.
    What is acceptable is being able to stand ass to ass with strangers in Ace hardware in their narrow aisles any day of the week?
    It all stinks.

    The Mayor of Chicago wants to close the lakefront, 27 miles of bike and walking paths, because people are using them.

    In the Good News Dept, a neighbor works in a 60 bed pediatric center at a nearby hospital. She said it normally would be near capacity with various flu and respiratory illnesses right now. Currently only 30% filled.

      Update: At 7:00 PM Central time, the Mayor has closed the lakefront, the Riverwalk, and all the city parks. She announced this using the Emergency Alert System that would more typically be used for a tornado warning, thermonuclear war, or another Dire Emergency. Panic much?!??
      No tornado or air raid sirens, though.

    NH’s govonor came just a hair short of going full retard today of completely shutting the state down. He ordered a “please stay at home if needed” order but stopped short of calling a shelter in place, “extended” all shutdowns until May 4th and “closed” all state parks, including the beaches. A lot of my research shows we’re the only republican led state under such strict guidelines and it makes Warhorse and I think our govonor is trying to kiss ass for a position in Trump’s cabinet.

Play nice.
