The wedding dress woman is living in a different world. I hope she'll find a local dress maker. You can get a really good price and something that is more unique than all of that warehouse junk.

Local businesses have to be very strong and have loyal customers to make it through the tough times but I'd stay away from market predictions. These same kind of panic scenarios have happened through the years and they always are resolved before the public gets the news. Traders are very anxious people and they've programmed their tools to be even more paranoid. Investing isn't for the weak of heart and maybe looking at that 401K too much for the next few weeks isn't advised for the faint of heart.

Looked normal to me; fearmongering much?

^^^ You didn't go out, you probably don't even live in KC. Sorry, nice try. The market drops 3500 points and you're saying there's no fear out there? Good luck, buddy.

Yeah and I'm supposed to believe your hero "strolled" through the Crossroads, Westport, 39th Street and The Plaza when in all likelihood his Spark is still cold and he pulled this out of his ass like usual.

Because when your credibility is zero this is what people think, Greeho.

Rent is almost due, people aren't going out because they are using their dough on rent. You wouldn't know anything about that would ya Tony?

Reality Speaker said...

11:59 Funny. However, bought 250 supposedly "effective" masks at premium price for friends and family. Not cheap, but if this thing progresses, it's worth it..

Hopefully, Will toss all in trash "AFTER" threat.

No panic, but this thing could get big. Already lost several thousands, but that's okay if no real local impact develops.

THANK GAWD NOT RELYING ON "BERNIE" FO PROTECT US.

Der Fuhrer said it was a hoax.

Rush Limbaugh said it was just a "cold".

The Pope canceled an event today because he was sick with the cold.

Good luck, & good night.
