    Didn't Biden get in a bit of trouble back in the day for calling LaGuardia third world?

      I don't travel a lot (sadly), but I believe it.

        So now Doug Collins joins Ted Cruz and Paul Gosar in self-quarantining due to possible exposure.

        Worst reality show ever.

          Can someone explain to me why people need to buy every single roll of toilet paper in sight? Are they suddenly going to stop producing toilet paper? Does this virus cause diarrhea on an apocalyptic scale? I don't get it.

            & Water. Costco yesterday had three guys patrolling the water aisle telling people they could only take 2 cases of water. Of course everyone had 2 of every type of water in their huge Costco cart.

            We were low on water, I bought a case. I probably could have made a few bucks on the black market outside in the parking lot, but I passed.

            There were also limits on Huggies. So, maybe people were buying them when the toilet paper was no longer available.

            Also in Costco news. No free samples yesterday. The peeps who usually pass out those things were busy cleaning or helping at the check out.
            I thought that was good of Costco to keep those folks working. They aren't employees of Costco. Kudos to them.
            Sometimes I feel like my sell by date expired yesterday.

              No clue. Went shopping today and the shelves were stocked full. No Purell though.
              Let the kids play.

                It's more a fear that there will be quarantines and people will be inside and not shopping.


                Now if you ibuprofen or one of it's name brand equivalents I've been told stocking up now might be prudent as a lot of it is manufactured in China.

                  I went last week and bought some Lsyol wipes. Not because the coronavirus apocalypse is upon us but because we were low and I needed a new tube of them. There was a sign saying the store was limiting purchases to 4 units. I only needed one, so I bought only one. I never had any intention of buying any more than that. People are a puzzlement.

                    you need two pallets of toilet paper to get through a two week quarantine? Somebody has a lot of fruit in their diet.

                        I'm surprised people aren't stocking up on vitamin c. Boost the immune system.

                          You can only use so much Vitamin C - the excess is just brightly colored pee.
                          Though I believe Zinc is supposedly good for disrupting virus replication. Though I'm not sure if that was a specific study or general to all virus.

                            They announced the New Haven, CT St. Patrick's Day parade has been postponed this year. I believe it's one of the oldest continuous St. Patrick's Day parades in the country.

                              Italy just closed.
                              If they stats I saw - 9163 infections - 463 dead are accurate, that's 5% mortality rate.
