Greetings from the bunker!

We've managed to re-supply; now holding a whopping 16 rolls of toilet paper feels like hitting the jackpot, doesn't it? We ordered soggy, lukewarm cheeseburgers from our local pub last night, and fortunately have a reasonably well-stocked Market Basket within about two miles of the compound.

A Small Ray of Sunshine

Senate and House congressman working into the wee hours of the night finally agreed on a nearly $2T package of economic relief to help the country during this time of crisis. The previous sticking points were Republicans trying to all the money to business (with no restrictions on how it was to be used) instead of the people, and Democrats trying to pad the bill with a wish-list of infrastructure projects (falsely labeled "environmental regulations"). The contents of the bill was agreed upon "in principal", although it has yet to be written down as an official legal document.

Good Morning.

Coronavirus might cancel the Olympics, but does it cancel war?

As I sit here, I find myself contemplative. I am trying not to stress, and that's difficult. Reaching out to friends and asking them how they are doing has been a comfort to me.

COVID-19 Response, aka: Stupid is as Stupid Does
Author: BobR    Date: 03/18/2020 13:34:00

As COVID-19 continues its world tour, those left in its wake (and trying to tamp down its growth) have had to make hard decisions. Italy - which has seen 7% of its citizens who contracted the illness die from it - is warning the world "Don't be like us!" The question remains to be seen - will we heed their advice?
