(Sorry but I had to say it. This COVID-19 is too serious for me to tolerate anyone who is trying to work their own agenda. Serve others…..not just yourself. The irony that I am using my name and caricature, which can be thought of as self-promoting, is not lost on me).

    I do think the isolation and limitations of public gatherings is prudent. The rush on stores was/is absolutely stupid.
    I had “accidentally” bought an industrial size collection of TP 3 weeks ago before the rush and regretted I already had some in storage.
    I do think the barber shops and beauty salons should close down and only pharmacies and grocery stores remain open.

    It’s sobering to think that those 65 and up are the ones who are going to need the hospital care and at higher risk of death. At 63, I am taking pause.

    Our nervous society’s overreaction to this virus will cause far, far more harm than the virus itself could have ever caused.
