  1. Good News: We can recover from this Virus! On Saturday, Hanks, 63, said on Twitter that he and Wilson would continue to quarantine. “Hey, Folks… We’re home now and, like the rest of America, we carry on with sheltering in place and social distancing,” the actor wrote. “Many, many thanks to everyone in Australia who looked after us,” he added. “Their care and guidance made possible our return to the USA. And many thanks to all of you who reached out with well wishes. Rita and I so appreciate it. Hanx.”

  5. I agree that we will have to take precautions we never had to do before but "All business is essential to the Economy! We fly, buy meals, pay parking, stay at hotels and watch entertainment. We tip our Waiters and Waitresses, they also do that that is what will ruin our economy and cause our way of enjoying life to change in a direction none of us will like, no matter what our politics are. as with every other crisis through out history , we will learn to live with it, if it stays or goes. I am optimistic that America will save the World once again!
  6. the vast majority ( greater than 99% as of the last report I heard) in the U.S. have mild symptoms, others have problems but finally recover with minor treatment. the less than 1 percent that die from it might be of a great concern but we as a society can take precautions to protect them. Once we start to see a decline in the new cases reported and the death rate we will be able to get somewhat to normal. it is something we are eventually going to have to live with, like it or not.
  7. we have made the extremely difficult decision to postpone Phoenix Fan Fusion from May 21-24 to September 25-27, 2020
  8. Seem there will be an abundance of shows all summer long into the fall. As dealers we will mostly be sticking to the regularly scheduled shows. plans are usually made 6 months to a year in advance. So if you go to Convention for Comics, the original ones are your best bet. Of course none of this will matter if the panic lasts until the Summer. from May until August right after San Diego Comic Con and Torpedo Comic Show in July. postponed the date of Comic Con Revolution to August 8 & 9, 2020. Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention Announces Rescheduled 2020 Dates of September 11 - 13, 2020 SoCal will be awash in Comic shows.
  9. Be optimistic! Chloroquine phosphate, an antimalarial drug, is shown to have yielded positive data against COVID-19 associated pneumonia in multicenter clinical trials conducted in China. It is slated to be included in the next version of the Guidelines for the Prevention, Diagnosis, and Treatment of Pneumonia Caused by COVID-19 issued by the National Health Commission of the People's Republic of China.
  10. I was wondering what a small business could do about the Economic destruction caused by the corona-virus. I was thinking, don't we fight fire with fire? What would happen if everybody in this country intentionally caught a cold? It seems to me that if your body already has a cold virus in it there's no place for a new virus to occupy? I'm no scientist or doctor but I'm using logic on this one couldn't hurt to ask the question of Medical and virus experts?
  11. I hate to tell you this, but I am old - 61 I didn't say not to do anything, I just don't want to ruin the United States Economy out of panic.
  12. Why the Toilet Paper and Hand Sanitizer Companies, of course.
  13. From 2009: Swine flu has caused nearly 10,000 deaths in the United States, part of an outbreak that has infected about 50 million Americans, government health officials said Thursday. The deaths as of mid-November included about 1,100 children and 7,500 younger adults, said Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. From 2020: As of March 2, a total of 88,913 cases of COVID-19 have been reported to the World Health Organization (WHO) - and 90% of those are in China, mostly in one province. In China, a total of 2,912 people have died, whereas outside China, there have been 127 deaths, among 8,739 cases in 61 countries. Why did we not over react to Swine Flu? This smells to me like a Politically motivated panic.
  14. This is not Ebola, are you misinformed. I am very optimistic that the State ( whoever that is ) does not have the ability to shut down small gatherings. If they did, Mall and large shopping centers would have to close as well, the economic cost would be substantial. Not to mention Church, Synagogue, Weddings and other religious gatherings, really doubt we live in that society yet.
