stinky stew

odds are, its people working in the apple & pear warehouses on the western side of quincy- hundreds of people there, elbow to elbow on sorting table, break rooms, bathrooms.

I went to school in Quincy and this isn't a surprise at all. I am almost certain that most of the cases are residence in the city limits. Stay in your house, stop touching your face, wash your hands... There are a few good people in Quincy, but there are a ton of skin covered dog turds!

Social Distancing plan is a failure. As long as essential business remain open, the disease will spread. Stupid corporate bosses that value 'dollars over death' will keep the virus alive and spreading.

The point is to slow the spread, not stop it. it can't be stopped, but slowing it to the extent that hospitals aren't overwhelmed is a possibility. From what I've se n, it's working.

just another john

i guess our lawmakers have never fished alone. Pretty Sad!!!

I'm super pumped the recent fishing closure has curtailed new cases.

Pure overreach of power! So one can go to the pot shop or Walmart and shop close to other potential carriers of the virus but I cannot fish off of a secluded embankment?

It's simply to say that they "did something" instead of standing around marinating their thumbs. Thoughts and prayers. Useless.
