Coronavirus
« on: March 13, 2020, 11:19:28 AM »
Has any leagues been cancelled that some of you bowl in due to the Coronavirus ? A tournament I was going to bowl in pulled the plug. I'm in Ohio where mass gatherings of 100 or more are prohibited. Things are changing daily so it could be an adjustment after the 2 p.m. press conference.

We can get our economy up and running--- perhaps not like before but certainly better than it is now. Wear a mask. Practice social distancing. The sooner folks do this, the faster we can hope to get up off of our feet.
Support those who are trying to find a safe, effective vaccine. In other words, support the science. Governor Newsom, like our governor in Pa (Gov Wolf), have a monumental task on their hands trying to balance things out.

It's perfectly normal to feel frustrated. Nobody enjoys this. I don't. I, like most folks, sorely miss just being able to stroll through the shopping mall or to not even have to think twice about picking up a bowling bag and heading to the lanes. Unfortunately, these are far from normal times.
There is a lot of talk about individual freedom. The right to do whatever we please.
That was never the case, even before this terrible pandemic struck. There is a well-known legal principle that the law recognizes in this country. That principle states that our freedom to do whatever we please  stops "at the end of our noses."
Specifically, this means that we are not free to commit harm to others.  When people
refuse to practice social distancing, refuse to wear a mask, they are placing others in potential danger. In many cases, it could mean the difference between life or death.
It is true that as time goes on, we continue to learn new things about this virus. However one thing is clear. Social distancing and masks work. In fact, that's all we have right now.

Governor Newsom, has a monumental task on his hands trying to understand basic statistical analysis and keeping small family owned businesses out of balance with big box stores in California.

There, fixed it for ya.

Hilarious to go back and read some of the hypnosis and irrational fear that some people were under only a few years ago. Most of these comments haven’t aged well at all.

You had me doing the same thing. This thread is hilarious, and agreed; some sensationalist comments really haven't aged well.

BL.
