I bakced up to maintain 6 feet, they closed it bac kto 2. I eventually was legit with my back against the wall. :|

The Ides of March isn't just about stabbing, it's about stabbing in groups.

So, my local Costco was sold out of paper towels and TP (probably kleenex, too, but I didn't check, they had big signs up for those two).

gov't support of business during covid 

roads: *falling apart*
green areas: *eroding to clay*
park equipment: *broken*
public buildings: *paint peeling*

all my friends: *working like 50h a week serving drinks and meals to the people in town who work for multinational conglomerate corporations that have no direct benefit to the community except tax revenue which is largely deferred... just like the maintenance... until it's unobtainable and new revenue streams are pursued to offset it but then the maintaince costs more...*
