Beer doesn't cure coronavirus and it might help numb the pain but over drinking doesn't leave you in great shape to fight an infection. Just saying.

The Plaza needs cleaned too. Those stairways to parking are filthy and sticky. So whoever owns the Plaza needs to do something about that.

Whatcho doin in da stairwell, 6:32??

As for joco, we are not turning in and ratting out businesses like in KCK--our holier than thou residents have swarmed all over Nextdoor to rat out golfers at Milburn CC, kids playing soccer, a man and his son using their boat at SM Park, and...people walking too close when passing on the walking trails!

It's like Germans turning in hidden Jews to the Gestapo. In a very self-righteous mean way.

Um no. You have a slight chance to get sick but won't be sent to the death factory. You might get a small fine. You really do need to stop the rugby for a while.

^^ Do you really think China is telling the truth about their confirmed cases? And do you think these other countries care enough to test as many people as we're testing, resulting in our number appearing higher than other countries? If so, I've got some female hygiene pads to sell you for a mask. Some of these state governors are sitting on their rears and whining about the federal government not helping them, when they should be doing more than they're doing.
