  1. Genius. https://www.planetizen.com/news/2020/03/108878-mississippi-governor-first-preempt-local-stay-home-orders
  2. We should be setting up road blocks between NC and TN, GA and SC. I'm half serious. I get that Republicans believe that government is unnecessary except for the military, but at least for now, technically, government is responsible for the public health, safety, and welfare. Free trade, no public safety nets, no zoning, etcetera means that Republicans like those in GA and FL think this virus should play out without government doing anything. If the public wants to go and hang out at a bar and the bar owner wants to be open, that's what should happen. Each individual is responsible for themselves. No one should be surprised by the reluctance "to do" anything in some states.
  3. I completely agree. Compared to othern Southern states, only North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, and Kentucky appear to have gotten this correct. The New York Times has a great database of numbers. You can see the impact of NC's shelter-in-place (sip) orders. The number of cases in Durham, tied with Mecklenburg for first place to implement sip, has seen new cases drop dramatically. I cautiously think the worst is over in terms of the growth rate of new cases in NC. Thanks, Governor Cooper.
  4. I will never understand why Raleigh-Durham were separated in the 2000 census except for political reasons when MSP, DFW, TPA, etc., are considered single MSAs. The numbers matter for site location and research purposes. The other point about MSA/CSA numbers are the physical size of these areas. The geographic area of the Charlotte MSA and CSA is small compared to its peers. This is bad/good. A larger geographic area = higher population; on the other hand, a more compact MSA/CSA points to higher density/less sprawl. That said, the CSA numbers 2010 / 2019: .Charlotte-Concord, NC-SC CSA 2,402,623 2,797,636 .Raleigh-Durham-Cary, NC CSA 1,740,185 2,079,687 .Nashville-Davidson--Murfreesboro, TN CSA 1,763,744 2,062,547 Virginia Beach-Norfolk, VA-NC CSA 1,801,988 1,859,197 .Greensboro--Winston-Salem--High Point, NC CSA 1,589,200 1,689,151 .Jacksonville-St. Marys-Palatka, FL-GA CSA 1,470,473 1,688,701 .Greenville-Spartanburg-Anderson, SC CSA 1,336,656 1,475,235 Attached is an Excel spreadsheet of the CSA numbers. csa-est2019-annres.xlsx
  5. According to the Raleigh News and Observer, North Carolina has no "major international airport".
  6. You have a right to do what you want as long as what you do doesn't harm MY health, safety, or welfare. I know people like you from decades in city planning. You end up being the biggest whiners when your neighbor does something you don't like. You hate government until you need it.
  7. No fluid but definitely felt pressure. Isnt pleasant, slowly productive. Coughing caused major pain in chest and head. Other issues... swollen lymph nodes and enlarged spleen (shown in CAT scan) docs said are related to having an infection.
  8. Thank you! No problems. Fever 103.9, trouble breathing, sore joints. Tested negative for flu a and b. A couple of personal experience takeaways.... Doctors and nurses at Duke are genuinely concerned They dont have enough supplies We arent doing enough to stop the spread Testing is obviously too limited and too slow to get results, I'm still waiting on result since last Thursday.
  9. I was tested Thursday night. Hospitalized Friday morning. I was released this afternoon. They still havent gotten the test results back but cant keep me hospitalized now that my fever has broken. I was in isolation. Nurse and doctor and aid could only enter my room 4 or 5 times a day because they need to conserve protective gear so they won't run out. The hospital I entered Friday is not the hospital I left today. That hospital has been replaced by a military installation. I was required to sign a form from the NCDHS to commit to self-quarantine.
  10. https://thepointsguy.com/news/april-long-haul-routes-american-delta-hawaiian-united-airlines/amp/ This isnt a good sign? AA has three long-haul while UA and DL are continuing many more. Why the difference?
  11. Did the renderings disappear from anyone else's screen? I get the broken jpg icon... Was it pretty?
  12. Getting Honeywell and Truist in the same year is unprecedented for ANY market.
  13. Talk amongst yourselves... https://www.bizjournals.com/triangle/news/2020/02/21/hotelier-wants-to-build-110m-luxury-hotel-in.html?iana=hpmvp_trig_news_headline
  14. Beat me to the post. Thank you for posting this. Nice article. Even more impressive? North Carolina, again, is the only state represented by two cities. This seems to be becoming a theme... Good for us. NC: 2; GA/TN: 0 Oh, and by the way, not a crappy pic of Charlotte or Raleigh.
