    we lost a woman in her 90s yesterday. A visitor to her rest home had been in Italy, probably being caring by visiting on their return but infected 15 staff. They're not testing many of the residents because it would distress them. I feel so sorry for her. She must have been bewildered by all the fuss. Hopefully the palliative care reduced much of the pain.

    We're lucky that she was only our second death and we've seen the Hart Island drone footage but it's still awful.

    This is not unique to my state in the U.S. All border towns in all states have large amounts of traffic between them. In fact, there are rarely any demarcations on the local roads, so you are not even really aware of which state you are in as you drive around. It is only on the major highways that they have signs telling you when you are leaving a state or entering a state which is a total non-event. All driver's licenses, etc., are good in any state. The only people who really worry about which state they are in (as far as I am aware) are those folks who are licensed by a state to carry a concealed weapon. That is a state-only license and does not transfer as you cross state lines.

    One thing is for sure, if the People's Republic of Rhode Island seceded from the country, I would move to a red state, for sure.

    According to our records, Jeannette bought our first "Roswell Special" model in 1947 and has been a consistent client ever since. Of course, we serve just about all of the "Nut"ley NJ township, anyway.

    California brings it up on occasion, as well. Truth be told, I would love to see a blue state/red state split up of the country, though the geographical split would be difficult. The blue states would never do this because, deep down, they realize that they could not survive without the subsidies that come from the red states via the federal government.

    huh, we hear about people having to get new number plates for their car, new licenses, new bank accounts when they move to a different state. Good to hear that bureaucracy has gone by the wayside

    My original point was that if there is any doctor in the U.S. who is not aware of Hydroxycholorquine, s/he is extremely ill-informed, given the news coverage and probably should lose their license. Part of being a doctor is staying up to date on the latest treatments as they come out. But mostly, if any doctor here in the U.S. refused to consider to use any drug because Trump was talking it up (Trump Bad!), then that doctor should lose his/her license immediately. They are supposed to be making clinical decisions, not political ones.

    My understanding is that the actual test for flu or coronavirus is very uncomfortable. Apparently, they have to stick the swab way up your nose and into the sinus cavity and it is not fun. I have never had it done, but my wife has and has confirmed that it is not a pleasant test to take. That could be part of the reasoning on this.

    Wow, only two deaths. How many have died from influenza during this same time period?

    I was talking about simply driving over the border to shop, go to work, or whatever transient activity you may perform. If you move your legal residence to a new state, you need to become a citizen of that state, get a new driver's license, register to vote, sign up with your town and the state to pay taxes, get called to jury duty, etc. You do not need to change your bank account, though it may be more convenient to do so.

    Funny! On a related note, the Attorney General of Massachusetts has pointed out that the car insurance companies are paying out far fewer claims these days due to the very limited car travel that is taking place (as also evidenced by the cost of a gallon of gasoline here which has plummeted due to a lack of demand.) She is charged with overseeing all insurance agencies in the state and is asking the car insurers to cut their rates due to the current situation.

    I can ship a bunch of tinfoil hats there to help with this amazing crisis! Just imagine if the death rate continues down this path and doubles again!

    Just to illustrate how dissembling the Fake News Media is, they are leading today with this news: Clovid-19 is the leading cause of death today in the U.S. That is a one-day snapshot for today only, of course. Now, when there is a big plane crash that kills many hundreds of people in a single day, the headline could read the same for plane crashes. :rolleyes:

    Of course, their low-information news consumers will be panicked and horrified...

    I have another solution for that, but I'll probably get banned for suggesting it....

    It has been stuck in our R&D department for a while now. Every time I ask them about it, they say things like "Trying to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear.." and "You can't get blood out of a stone..." It's not the tinfoil hat, it is the head that it is sitting on.

    Wow. Doubled in LESS than 24 hours. I hope you are packed and ready to abandon the Kiwi Islands as in LESS than 20 days, ALL Kiwilanders will be dead and Kiwiland will revert to back how it was before invaded by people.
