That figure seems awfully high to me too. But can't we agree that of all of the people who are unhappy with Comrade Bill, some of them live in NYC? Regardless of which way the newspaper leans, look at the front page of tomorrow's NY POST.



As best as I can see, about 5% of city residents left, but many upper class NY residents have winter condos in Florida, and summer houses elsewhere. Thousands of college students left when schools were canceled. It's not that they have permanently left. It's that they sheltered elsewhere. My Sister wanted to send her kids down to their Palm Beach condo, but they didn't want to go.
No mayor is universally liked, but DiBlasio won re-election pretty handily and would be a heavy favorite if he runs again.

Chances are they hadnít paid their May 1st rent yet. So the security deposit they left covers that.

Itís an opportunity for them to start a new life and spread the virus in a new state.



Hah! You don't Know NY'ers.

They are more likely to point out the NY civil court is closed and there is a moratorium on eviction right now and settle down for the free rent

As my professor's used to say, never say all.

So all NY'ers may not be happy with Deblasio.

But there are no city hall protests (and most definitely not with armed citizens) here. So I base my statement on that

Here is one rally where no one showed up except the cops!

I heard there was one rally with a few dozen on Saturday in Staten island but if you know NY you know that's like a snobbish place anyway separated from the main part of the city

The answer is a political one, but no politics on this site (all I can say in reply is that the answer as to why the goal posts keep moving rhymes with fems)



That doesn't fool me. Three-day suspension. Welcome to the forum.

Leronlimab is the drug.

No, I just figure it's best 2 follow the money/stock to see if it's got any potential.

There has been no news on the current clinical trials.

That's not bad not good. They are double-blinded placebo.

Double blinded means neither the patients nor the administering doctors know who has the drug. This avoids doctors doing any selection bias.

Unfortunately it also means no one knows if the drug vs. placebo is working until the double blind is removed

So we have a few more weeks for some data to be released

So it looks like according to Richard N. Velotta of the Las Vegas Review Journal in his article from a couple days ago "Casino reopening clues may come in Control Board workshop Tuesday" that we may finally get some kind of actual reopening date on Tuesday!!!

That is a big might, for sure. Every-time I think we may actually hear something solid the actual press conferences are full of double speak, buck passing and non-commitment to anything.

Imagine running a fine establishment like The Rusty Spurs or Double Down without being able to project re-opening at all. Must be killing them.

Vellotta had some great quotes in the article:

"Six health and safety experts have been invited to address the board in a videoconference, followed by board deliberations and possible action."

Does possible action mean reopening date finally set?

"Nevada is on track to be one of the last states to reopen casinos."

Really, your biggest industry is Casinos and you are the last??? Hell the peoples republic of CA is opening casinos before Nevada.

Pathetic just pathetic. I just want to spend 12 hours at the old Double Down playing video poker, drinking PBR & Ass Juice while listening to punk rock and there no way to schedule a trip.

On a good note I was able to confirm the TA Truck Stop on Dean Martin has a back entrance for the showers so the hard working truckers are not totally screwed. The truckers lounge and gym are still closed and no word on their awesome Alamo casino.

Another 12 hours at The Rusty Spurs would be on the schedule too... If only we knew the darn schedule.
Can I get some drink tickets with that bet?
