I agree with others who are pointing out the new norm are mostly some accelerating trends that existed before.

Decline in retail. Nothing new here, except some acceleration. I don't think...

I tend to agree with you, just making devil's advocate arguments here. But the argument is that if what we're seeing today was everything, fine. But if more food processing plants need to shut down...

I just assumed because they live in the woods and never bathe or wash clothes, it's a combination of the smelly mask, their smelly clothes, and their smelly bodies. And by smell, I mean the smell of...

I think some states will start lifting in April, so that's how I voted. I think the majority will be lifted in May. Some hard hit areas, or high pop areas that are lagging a little (perhaps FL?)...

I think I'm done with this show. I just can't concentrate hard enough and feel like I'm missing subtle points. Too distracting trying to play detective on what time period we're in, etc. Going to...
