Yes, things are a mess in the travel/tourism industry.  I'm just glad I'm not up in Anaheim between Disneyland, the convention center and Angel Stadium, all of which are closed UFN.  To give you some idea of what's going on at Bay Shores, the answer is not much, but it could be worse.  I decided to stay open and cover the cash-flow deficits while most of the other beach hotels have closed, laying off all their employees. If we can maintain some level of occupancy I can't in good conscience lock the doors and lay off all my loyal & trusted employees.  I've applied for some SBA stimulus money which will cover some of the shortfall, which would be nice if it's approved.  We'll see,  Hopefully they'll lift this stay-at-home stuff and get folks moving around soon...  Say hi to Ruth Ann for me.     ---Fred

European leaders warn coronavirus could lead to the breakup of their union

The cohesion of the European Union had been battered by Brexit, bruised by the political fallout from the 2015 migration surge and the 2008 financial crisis, and challenged by rising autocracy in the east that runs contrary to the professed ideals of the European project.

Now, if Europe’s leaders cannot chart a more united course, the project lies in what one of its architects described this week as “mortal danger.”

China Puts County On Lockdown After New Corona Cluster Emerges

Having lied for the past two months about the severity and the extent of coronavirus pandemic which its virologists started in Wuhan, eager to convey the message that the crisis "under control" just so people return to work, full of hope and enthusiasm, rejoicing at the surge in China's just as fabricated PMI numbers, and willing to work their asses off (with Beijing generously willing to risk everyone's lives as the alternative is a complete collapse in China's economy) earlier today the US finally cracked down on the relentless barrage of Chinese lies, when US intelligence accused China of deliberately lying about its coronavirus figures.

Then, in a miraculous coincidence, just moments later Reuters reported that a county in central China's Henan province announced on Wednesday it had "virtually banned all outbound movement of people, following several cases of coronavirus infection in the area."

According to a post on its social media account, Jia county - which has a population of about 600,000 - said that no one can travel out of Jia county without proper authorization. Additionally, residents are not allowed to leave their homes for work unless they have clearance to do so.

Water Cooler / The Return of the Barter Economy
« on: April 01, 2020, 10:55:30 AM »
(Bloomberg) -- Since the beginning of March, unattended folding tables have begun popping up at intersections and the end of people’s driveways, offering everyday goods like rice, a jar of jam or bread. Take what you need and leave what you can, the signs say.
