"What a revoltin' development THIS is!"

The current 'unpleasantness' reminded me of this phrase.

Trivia:
Who said it?
On what medium/media?

Any ideas how to ensure fresh produce is coronavirus free?

Nothing that I can find on google.
Our super market produce passes through a lot of hands.

How to remove latex/nitrile/whatever gloves:

Remove by pinching from the TOP of the wrist and peeling off.
This is IMPORTANT!
You may touch something with the underside of your wrist but not with the top side.
Just FYI.

OK, here's the drill.

Made a booze run to Pensacola today because it's a LOT cheaper than here in Alabama.
Before we left, wiped exterior car door handles with Clorox wipes.
Donned gloves before we exited car.
Bought 2 cases Scotch.

Had credit card in shirt pocket so I wouldn't have to get my wallet out and possibly contaminate it..
Clerk put cases in cart.
Back at car, sprayed cases on all sides with Lysol disinfectant.
Kick opened rear gate.
Put cases in car.
Peeled off gloves from TOP of wrist.
Dropped in container in trunk.
In car used Purell on hands.

Miz t. is 75 and in excellent health.
I'm 78 with 'mild'(?) COPD and (treated) hypertension.

I think we're OK.


Oh yeah, wiped down credit card with Clorox wipe.

There's always a silver lining.

Now is the time to load up on cruise ship, airline, and hotel stocks.
I'm not in a position to do this due to age and vulnerability.

For you youngers with investments.
This virus will eventually pass.
Cruise lines are already turning away passengers that they view as at risk.
Stocks are down 70%.
Over 70?
Have a doctor's letter saying you're in good health.
Running a fever?
No boarding for you.

I'm sure airlines will do the same.

I don't remember who said it, but "Buy when blood is running in the streets."
Rothschild?



No COVID 19 reported in Alabama, Mississippi, or West Virginia.

The three poorest (and worse governed?) states in the U.S.
I live in Alabama.
I guarantee you it's here.
We just don't have the infrastructure to test for it.

The three men running for president are all at risk for COVID 19.

If you accept that it's a two man race for the Democratic nomination.
All in their 70s and at least one (that we know of) has heart disease.

AIPAC and the coronavirus

From a friend:

"I attended the 3-day AIPAC conference in DC early last week that might very well have spread the Corona to the entire country and all of Congress. (We were 20,000 people, from all 50 states. A number of our attendees had been in the presence of the NYC outbreak.

Since yesterday, they’ve announced that at least two attendees had contracted Corona themselves, and my guess is that we’re just getting started. We spent the first two days in conference rooms together, and then spent the third day in the various, small offices of Congressmen and Senators)."

FWIW

Coronavirus: Wear nitrile gloves at the grocery store.

They're fairly cheap at Harbor Freight and other stores.
1. They'll protect your hands while grocery shopping.
2. They'll remind you not to touch your face.
