Business as usual at the largest casino in Az. Sold out outdoor concert tonight (2,854 people) for John Fogerty. No Az casinos have closed yet. Stores have trimmed hours to restock and clean but no closures. Movie theaters open but only selling 50% of seats to keep distance between customers. The only thing closed are schools through the end of the month.

This doesnít surprise me. Close schools, bars, shows and restaurants but leave the casino floor open??

Gotta be kidding.

Iím assuming they realized the problem. If you are fighting this virus...it has to be consistent.

The problem is, there's only been 10 positive tests in Az. There's no social pressure yet. It might get there though. Medieval Times Restaurant/Show just notified of their closure. That's the biggest thing so far and right across the street from my Casino. Once that starts happening, others feel obligated to go along. That could be the first of things to come this next few days.

I don't think there's any connection between smoking and danger to non-smokers. It probably dangerous to The Smokers themselves when they're touching their cigarette and it goes in the mouth. Factors being a smoker if I'm out and I want to smoke are very low. I don't think staying inside going to work for me but being in public isn't working either. As long as everyone doesn't get sick at once that's what people need. All right now I'm at right now. I've had a cough for about 5 or 6 days but nothing else really.

I wonder if the virus can live in 120 degrees in the shade. That was the temp when I left Glendale.

That might have something to do with smokers lungs not being as strong as a normal person's. I'm going to have believe that smokers have a higher probability of dying from the virus
(And in general, as well). Do smokers have a better chance to get it, that I have no idea.

I knew Fogerty was doing a tour, he's stopping in California too. So when you said this, I had to look it up. I got confused by "Talking Stick Resort". I thought, wtf is that? I figured it out. Never been there. When I left Arizona, I don't think there was any casino action. I know The Fort was there, but maybe just bingo. I know The Fort got live poker not long after I left. I went there in '88 when all the "social gambling" (loophole) started poping up in all the bars. Tommy's Full House, I think, started it all. If you weren't there then, I'm sure you must have heard plenty of stories. Phoenix was all the way live between '88 -'90. It was truly The Wild West. Some of the most fun I ever had in my life. Of course, I was 30-something, everything was fun when you're 30-something.
