    The new Corona virus, should we worry?

    I ran a 55 second 44 eons ago, mediocre except I did it on a completely blown-out knee, ligaments and cartilage. I could have been fast if I hadn't been sideswiped in football practice-- spikes down, illegal hit from the side after the play was over--blown out knee.

    Market Watch

    I think the market has a lot further to go, down, down, down; because the virus has more body counts to go, up, up, up. In other words, the market is too optimistic now. I hope I'm wrong but so far I have not been pessimistic enough. The virus continues to exceed my worst expectations.

    So which church are you going to pack on Easter Sunday?
