People in Italy are making REAL good friends with their neighbors with dogs because walking the pooches is the only real way to get out of the house.

I am REALLY lucky that I go to a small gym with an after-hours code that gives me access whenever I want. I was the only person in the building when I worked out yesterday. I foresee a lot of 2:30 am workouts in my future.

BTW, I'm married to a yoga instructor whose studio is closed for the immediate future. If anyone is looking for virtual yoga, I can certainly hook you up.

Not only grocery stores, but some drug stores and stores like Target.

Grocery stores here sell booze. But many are getting cleaned out, and if you have a spouse who works in an ICU, you are working very hard not to get exposed to sick people, because shit is going to go downhill soon.

Speaking of grocery stores, I suggested this to their manager last night, and they're doing it now. Yay me!

I could join one of those up the road from me, but that too is closed now.

I was at the gym yesterday morning and it was filled with many older people. That struck me a bit strange. They either don't care or don't know how this virus works.

This leads me to another thought... Maybe I'm wrong, but it seems we're doing all of this to save the over 70 set and those with heart and lung conditions. Maybe after this two week forced quarantine ceases, instead of letting everyone run amuck once more, we issue the following directive:

DEAR BOOMER: ONCE MORE, THE REST OF THE COUNTRY IS PAYING TO MAKE SURE YOU'RE OKAY. THE HEALTHY AND YOUNG HAVE SUFFERED LARGELY FOR YOU. PLEASE REPAY THE FAVOR BY STAYING HOME FOR ANOTHER TWO WEEKS. HELP US ENSURE WE FLATTEN THE CURVE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.

Regarding the sick and infirm, offer this:

WE'RE SORRY YOU HAVE TO STAY HOME WITH YOUR BOOMER RELATIVES. A NATIONAL FUND HAS BEEN SET UP TO MAKE APPLE'S AND DISNEY'S LIBRARIES FREE TO YOU.

Re: Objectively intelligent.

I will say this, being a HIPAA and healthcare lawyer for an academic medical center in the middle of a pandemic means that I have plenty of things to do while hunkering down in the house.

Also, WTF? I've been practicing HIPAA for 18 years. I haven't heard it spelled out in 17.5. People don't even misspell it any more with two Ps and an A.

Michigan closed all fitness facilities.

My wife laughed at me because I said I wanted to live in Singapore.

The Senate is actually going to pass this 10-weeks-of-2/3-of-pay-if-a-worker's-kid's-school-is-closed bill.

This is insanity. First, it leaves 59 million workers out in the cold, as they work for firms with 500+ employees.

Second, it's going to destroy a lot of mid-sized businesses that can neither shut down nor afford to pay it.

Third, every business that can afford to shut down for a bit is simply going to do so and lay off employees.

This bill is insane. It's going to turn this from a recession into a near depression.

If you're a mid-sized business with 50-200 employees, the number of people you're going to have to pay for 10 weeks, up to $200 per day, is going to break you. Because we all known, the schools are not going back in session this year.

Cost to Amazon, Wal Mart, Target? 0.000 Risk to them? 0.000

We are living in a banana republic.

I was going to reply to your earlier comment but got sidetracked. I did not mean to take shots at the pre-1946 old people. I meant to take shots at the selfish set born between 1946-1956. That's about the sweet spot in which all the boomers who've driven this wreck into the ditch were born.
