    ITALIAN MAYORS--TCB & Kicking A$$. Our mayors can learn something from them instead ow waiting for the state and fed govt. to tell them what to do.

    A flamethrower. I love it. That would get the message across! We need that attitude over here. The governor of Georgia just opened the beaches!!!! How dumb do you have to be? Someone should pelt him with peaches!!!!

    Some of the states are trying to ignore the feds (Trump) and control the spread of the virus, but then Trump withholdings aid.

    On the other hand, my son's-in-law family is from Italy. You don't want the US to be like Italy. Be careful what you wish for - you just might get it.
    True enough, my final home is still out there, but this is most certainly my home range and I love it. I love every rock I fall off and tree I trip over. Even when I am close to dying from exhaustion, a beautiful sunset doesn't lose it's power to refresh and inspire me and that, in itself, is enough to save me sometimes.

    Hardly any danger of that any time soon. But "we" could definitely use more straight talk especially at a time like this. Why we have to coddle people and prevaricate is beyond me.

    Case in point, hot off the press: NYC to begin temporarily burying corona victims in local parks. If that's not serious I don't know what is.. An

    We could definitely use some strong citizen activism.

    You should, though, understand that NY is a special case. Just a cursory glance at the statistics that compare states shows that. The population density (my past harping on overpopulation that people don't believe is happening) and the fact that NY State ticked our POTUS (who is obviously rather vindictive) off are two big factors.

    Wolf VZ, I agree with you. I am mostly mad at NYC govt. and residents for not being more responsible. A close friend who lives nearby has been in denial herself, refusing to educate herself and understand what's at stake. Here in NYC and now. If someone in WY is in denial, they can afford to be. We can't.

    What we are dealing with is different from say, people who engage in bad habits that are lethal for their health. Their body, their choice, their gamble. Covid 19 is contagious to everyone and stretches the resources we do not have. Now it's no longer about individual choice...unless that choice is to stay home.

    Aye, a quicker response would have saved a lot of lives.

    Got this today. Matches what Rick posted earlier.

    "Thank you for contacting STBTC about convalescent plasma donations. The regulatory requirement directed to blood centers, for now, is only patients that have documentation of a positive COVID-19 test result qualifies for convalescent plasma donations. We are required to have documentation for a positive test result and then a negative test result for COVID-19 post 14 days from a patient's last symptom in order to be qualified to donate plasma."

    Default Not bad in a pinch

    At least no one is going to blame you for taking away supplies intended for those on the front lines.

    I know that no one on this forum is capable of being bored. But for some of us stuck inside, this is gold.
