There's an old joke with many variations, that if 1 in 4 people have some condition, and you don't know anyone, guess what? It's you.

How ya feeling?

Carry on.

Gee Bob... how many people in their 40's die of 'natural causes'?



My father in law died in the
nursing home yesterday
of 'natural causes' at 95.
My bro in law, his son,
threatened to sue them
into insolvency if they
even think of writing covid
as the cause of death.
They already got caught
doing it. They get some
kind of financial support
from the gov't for every
covid death they have.

I said New York, since they've been hit the hardest. I could be totally wrong, but I feel like NYC generates way more revenue than Las Vegas, even with the casinos.


I could be wrong, but I feel like a huge percentage of the non-essential workers in NYC are office jobs, and a lot of them are probably working from home.

The New York Metropolitan Statistical Area has close to 10 times the population of Clark County. Its tourism number is a little over double that of Southern Nevada.

Hawaii has been hit very hard economically, as a very large part of their economy is tourism. I heard one report that they are the hardest hit state ($).
So many better men, a few of them friends, were dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things lived on, and so did I.

480,000 in the hospitality sector. 80,000 or more in the transportation business- taxis, limos, car services, back office, garages, etc.
10,000 or more working in private Doctors offices and MRI imaging types of places, around 20,000 working in gyms, daycares, barbershops, nail salons, etc, etc. This is prime Street Fair weather. Citywide, street fairs and food trucks employ thousands.
Lots of people are working from home, but hundreds of thousands aren't.
