Why all the silence on the rioters?  I thought this would be a topic everyone would agree on!   :023:

That's good.  More and more businesses here are starting to require it as the numbers rise.  I find the stores owned by people from other cultures, liquor stores, convenience stores, etc. were the first to start requiring it or asking you to leave.

Do they actually enforce it there, Marv?  Here the laws are pretty empty.  If you don't follow it, there are no repercussions. 



It isn't in effect yet. But the plan is to enforce with fines using bylaw officer. Canadians are very good at shaming. It will be enforced by the public at large as in finger pointing.  Most shop keepers will enforce there space or risk fines. Costco has already said no mask... no admittance and hand you one at the door.

As for the heat:  "Arizona recorded more coronavirus deaths, infections, hospitilzations, and emergency room visits today than ever before."  The lizards burn their feet out there.

Update:  "On June 29, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey issued an executive order, entitled ‚ÄúPausing of Arizona's Reopening."  Looks like they're returning to at least a partial shelter in place.  The Texas governor is fighting that so hard.  He really doesn't want to do that to the economy, but as Dave mentioned, it's nuts here.  He may have to do so.

Yesterday, Canada's largest city,Toronto, passed a temporary bylaw. Masks are now mandatory in all indoor public spaces.

No shoes, no shirt, no mask... no service.

People congregate indoors where it's warm or air conditioned.

As we enter summer, this would explain to sudden increase in cases.

The other problem (or really an extension of this one) is that people are stupid.

I couldn't agree more.

Yesterday I canceled our annual family reunion set for July 11th......half of the family is glad and the other half want to string me up!  :007:

So much for the heat theory.

One of the theories is that when it gets really hot in places like Texas and Florida, people go inside where the air-conditioning is. Of course, I have no idea if that is true, or basically what to believe anymore. I just try to use common sense and stay away from as many people as possible.

Hello! I've been saying that for months. That's the theory I put forth as to why viruses like this and the flu get out of control in the winter. People congregate indoors where it's warm or air conditioned.  And in most commercial spaces they recirculate the air that everybody exhales.

The other problem (or really an extension of this one) is that people are stupid. Don't know if I talked about people here who sit in their cars and wear masks or wear masks out in the open.  The other day my wife and I ate at the outdoor dining area of a restaurant. There were a few tables set up under a tent in the parking lot. We get out of our car and walk maybe 20 feet directly to a table under the tent. Another table is finished and the couple puts masks on to walk that same 20 feet out across the parking lot to their car where they take their masks off.

I notice another table of four over in the corner by itself, obviously a family, actually eating with masks on. They lift their masks just enough to put food or a straw in their mouths. WTF. Just stay the hell home of you have to suffer like that.

My point to all of this is that people listen to the media and all they hear is wear your masks. So like sheep that's what they do. No common sense. So now when states like Texas open up the stupid people only hear that it's OK to go to restaurants and bars again and act like everything is back to normal.

That's all you can do, Larry.

Dave, that's a new one.  I had NO idea you were permanently disqualified from military service.  That speaks volumes that there is more there.

Children's Medical Center here in Dallas is having to bring in contract nurses to run the wards because they have so many nurses out in quarantine.
