  1. Does this seem like something American Airlines would do? American Airlines crammed the only 11 passengers on a flight into 3 rows because they only bought basic economy, report says https://www.businessinsider.com/coronavirus-american-airlines-forced-3-rows-didnt-buy-upgrade-2020-4
  2. Some interesting data on communities as moves toward sheltering in place rolled out: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/04/02/us/coronavirus-social-distancing.html A couple of takeaways . . . Urbanized places, unsurprisingly were able to reduce travel quickly. Mecklenburg issued their stay-at-home order on 3/24 to go into effect 3/26. While their data isn't correct, I'm pleased to see Mecklenburg Countians took the shelter-in-place seriously. This kind of surprised me ( @gman430looks like you were not in the minority in your county - most of central Florida except for Orange and Osceola county were on the list - Hillsborough was the last entry on the list):
  3. Clearly I'm felling geographically pedantic today. I blame being shut in or I missed a major relocation in the past few weeks. It's clear I need to get out into my neighborhood and look around.
  4. I hope, South End is legitimately Charlotte proper, I mean it does have clear views of the skyline and sits 1.75 miles (as the crow flies) from the intersection of Trade and Tryon. https://www.publix.com/locations/1453-shops-at-southline
  5. Looks like Greenville, SC is being overridden by the SC state AG and the governor on their stay-at-home order: https://www.greenvilleonline.com/story/news/local/2020/03/27/coronavirus-sc-live-city-council-metting-legal-opinion-causes-greenville-re-evaluate-stay-home-order/2925660001/
  6. I say this with no malice toward the many hard-working American Airlines employees in Charlotte and around the globe, but AA is the worst of the mainline product in the North American skies and possibly giving Spirit, Allegiant and Frontier a run for their money as the worst product in the skies. Additionally Doug Parker, et al. may be the worst airline execs bar none. AA remains penny wise and pound foolish. I think Delta may have the best mainline product and the best customer focus. United has clawed their way from the bottom in years past but I still think they may the most customer hostile of the mainline operators.
  7. I say this with no happiness. As of today, we're #1 - with no signs of slowing down: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/26/health/usa-coronavirus-cases.html Even if China is holding back reporting new infections, we as a country have failed to contain this virus and I don't think this is going to end well. https://www.ft.com/coronavirus-latest
  8. This too shall pass and mostly it's bonuses not pay increases. Besides a few bank bonuses to those making <$100k, what other bonuses and pay increases have happened?
  9. The grandstanding and pearl-clutching from Sens. Collins and Cotton rather than taking steps to help individuals, isn't helping. It's time to support America's taxpayers and families.
  10. Good! This package needs more support for individuals (and really only individuals), stronger protections for American taxpayers, homeowners, renters and the poor. Whatever passes should have no slush funds controlled by an individual and no funds disbursed without strong congressional oversight.
  11. Here's a list of links laying our why COVID-19 is not like the seasonal flu: Coronavirus Disease 2019 vs. the Flu | Johns Hopkins Medicine The Covid-19 coronavirus is not the flu. It’s worse. - Vox Why the Covid-19 coronavirus is worse than the flu, in one ... COVID-19 Is Deadlier Than The Flu. How Else Do They Differ ...
  12. Problematic or not, I'm a junkie for interactive maps. Here's the tool referenced in the tweet @kermit shared. https://healthweather.us/
  13. And my old home county (Polk) is red. Is that bad?
  14. But this isn't 2008. Something has to prop up what is rapidly failing. We're on the cusp of a bunch of ugly stuff as personal liquidity dries up, especially for people losing jobs and the implosion of the service economy.
