    Dont go looking for that story from established news sources, you likely wont find it. Read local inhabitants of greater New Orleans first-hand accounts. A firearm was a very handy thing to have, to put it lightly.
    My parents raised me to believe nothing that I read and only half of what I see. I'm not looking for any news stories to confirm what my eyes have seen over the past few weeks.

    People are selfish and will take and hoard anything they can. And when the stores run out I have no doubt they will look elsewhere to steal.

    I believe in not being part of the problem and in helping others. And I also believe in not being a victim. I think we are heading to a place where self defense is essential. And it makes me sick to have to think that way.

    Everyone in the medical field is dying?

    I certainly would care if what you said was remotely true. The second part is pretty rotten too.

    Sorry, but I am a data-driven person who uses reason, statistics, data, and logic to understand a situation. I am not emo. I am not hiding under my couch rocking back & forth in a drug-induced haze to "get by" this. Yes, people will die, especially those > 80. But we are going to get through this, and as bad as it is, it is not as bad as the worst-case scenarios you see on TV, which are unfortunately the only scenarios promoted, and I'm gathering from your posts is the scenario you believe.

    Hey bud, I know where you are coming from. These folks don't know you are at risk and scared.

    BG is discussing data and statistics. I don't think he is ignoring the risks that healthcare workers face. I fear for my wife who is a home healthcare worker and for her clients who are elderly. It hits home for me too. And young people are dying too, not just people over 60 like me.

    Last night I watched what has become a daily ritual in Italy where everyone has been confined to home. At 6pm all the residents of Italy go to their windows and applaud, cheer and give thanks to their healthcare workers. Awesome and inspiring!

    So let's all try to be kind to each other. I've said this before.

    If we support and care for each other this too shall pass.

    That's the first and last time I'll look at Twitter.

    Do they call people who use Twitter Twits? They should.

    Our ER just had 16 pizzas delivered by the police for a local restaurant who donated them to us. Greatly appreciated though for sure.

    You should apply these skills to climate change. Sorry, could not resist.
