Re: Cops Behaving Badly

Indigo - downtown Dallas is not "complete chaos." The crowds are dispersing and there have been only a few incidents of damage to some vehicles thus far.

Re: Coronavirus: Food Supply & Shortages

Alcohol-based hand sanitizer showed up in the local Winn Dixie today. Lot's of it. I conclude that the manufacturing sector has adapted. Purell disappeared from the shelves about March 10. So fifteen weeks? We're refilling Purell pumps with booze - 80% ethanol from a local distillery. Ain't nobody ...

Re: Good Housekeeping Tips - Coronavirus

Like any number of posters here, you may have CPAP equipment. If you don't already have a routine for cleaning it START ONE. Aside from the horribly expensive cleaning appliances there are some reasonably-priced ozone generator devices for post-cleaning sterilization but if you can't afford one of t...

Re: On a Personal Level--Coronavirus COVID-19 Cancellations, etc.

One of Mrs. Bean's older sisters was just admitted to a facility due to advanced Alzheimer's issues and as of this afternoon, her husband was advised that none of the family members will be able to visit her. It's a delicate balance - she's coherent enough to understand some of what's going on aroun...

Buttigieg. He's the only one that has a reasonable chance of defeating Trump. Bernie's beyond the looney edge of socialists and frankly he and Biden are too old and have been in politics far too long. Warren is an ivory-tower intellectual and Bloomberg is another politico who isn't going to be able ...

Something tells me that as usual, the media is straining to make it look like they have insight and especially knowledgeable sources into what is really going on.
