They beat him back and threw him into the parking lot. Five minutes later, he tries it again only he doesn't get that far as a couple of ladies in the crowd stopped him and started hitting them with their purses. Five minutes later, he tries a THIRD time. This time he got everyone's attention by saying "If you don't let me through, I can't open the store!"

    I'm here all week...
    I bet from now on (if he's still able to walk) he announces as he's coming through that he's the store manager. Poor guy. There should probably be a well marked employee only entrance. That could go a long way towards avoiding beat downs.

    I have a 30-ish friend who received a kidney transplant about a year ago. He went to the store the other day during the elderly/compromised window, and got the stink eye from just about everybody in the place. While he definitely SHOULD take advantage, he doesn't think he'll go back except during the time periods where the great unwashed are allowed in.

    I was sent by my dear wife to get her yogurt on Saturday morning. I got to ShopRite shortly after 6AM. There was hardly anyone there.

    Our schools are officially closed for the rest of the year, and the governor is expected to announce a stay home order that will start tomorrow at 5pm.

    Yeah, Ducey is Douche-y.

    Seriously I loathe him. He's pretty much always an ass. There were tons of people giving him hell to shut things down. He finally listened.

    Andrew not the mayor of NYC. He is the governor of New York State.

    Maybe, she'll listen to him now as he's been broadcasting from home since last week.

    Re: Covid-19

    Apologies if this is old news:

    President George W. Bush presented the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Dr. Anthony Fauci in 2008. These are Mr. Bush's remarks:
    ďThe man who would lead the fight against this dreaded disease (AIDS) came from an Italian American family in Brooklyn. Even as a boy, Tony was distinguished by his courage. In a neighborhood full of Brooklyn Dodgers fans -- (laughter) -- he rooted for the Yankees. (Laughter.) Tony earned a full scholarship to Regis High School, a Jesuit school in Manhattan. And he still quotes what he learned from Jesuit teaching: "Precision of thought, economy of expression." And now you know why he never ran for public office. (Laughter.)

    Those who know Tony do admit one flaw: sometimes he forgets to stop working. He regularly puts in 80-hour weeks. And from time to time, he's even found notes on his windshield left by coworkers that say things like, "Go home. You're making me feel guilty." (Laughter.) A friend once commented that Tony was so obsessed with work that his wife must be a pretty patient woman. The truth of the matter is, she's very busy herself. Christine Grady is a renowned bioethicist. And together they raised three talented daughters: Jennifer, Meghan, and Allison. And I hope each of you know that for all Tony has accomplished, he considers you to be one of his -- not one of his -- his most important achievement. Your love and support have strengthened him as he works to save lives across the world.

    For his determined and aggressive efforts to help others live longer and healthier lives, I'm proud to award the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Dr. Anthony S. Fauci.Ē óPresident George W. Bush
