    The Fed gov. is in hopeless paralysis, useless, arguing about dumb stuff, I kind of wish most of them would just get corona virus.

    States and some cities are acting and just outlawing everything, I'm glad they are acting at least with regards to the social distancing etc.. They are really coming through in these times. Because the Fed gov has all but abdicated and left it entirely to the states if anything is going to be done.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    A man told me his brother's ashes were going to be interred at Arlington Cemetery. Would it be essential to go there?

    Today's conservatives want to make the federal government so small they can "drown it in a bathtub" (see Grover Norquist), so they purposely starve it and administer it so heartlessly and ham-handedly that citizens will turn to their states to do what they can. I have a vision of red Ambu-bags with MAGA on them--do-it-youself ventilators.

    That's how it was designed.

    Got an email from my gym (LA Fitness) that all locations are closing, effective today, until at least 4/1.

    Our dentist has canceled all appointments. I believe our eye appointments will be canceled by tomorrow because those waiting rooms are huge. The gym closed as of tonight. DH made one last Costco trip and said it was insane but at least they were limiting items. He was only able to get about half of what he was looking for. We just ran out to Safeway to store up on the fresh stuff. We should be able to go about a month.

    What is the alcohol percent in everclear? I ask that because it may actually need to be watered down to be most effective. Apparently 70% is most effective. I was recently reading an article explaining that if the alcohol content is too high you scotch the outside wall of the virus but donít kill the actual virus inside the wall. The lower alcohol content gives it time to break the wall and then kill the virus. (Which is why you need to use enough 60%+ sanitizer that it takes a while to completely dry on your hands)
