      Washington Governor Jay Inslee dares to limit church services to 25 percent capacity or 200 people, whichever is less. I am amazed he would take on the churches in favor of the citizens. Wow! I will have to look and see if the casinos are open.

      With his re-election in the books, he can afford to be more aggressive. The haters are still gonna hate him.

      We are in lock down here with damn near total shutdown of restaurants and grocery stores. Neighbor told me today that Wal-Fart (if you can believe it) is closed for 2 weeks as someone was infected there. And people are in panic mode again taking all the water, and yes TP-again. Can’t wait till I move back to Oregon where there is some common sense-instead of people here insisting they have to go to church to see Jesus. Sick puppies if you ask me.

        WA had a period when you couldn’t get any TP anywhere for love or money during the first panic, & I’d bet Ore did too.

          For that matter, it was a weird issue lots of places in the world – though a Russian friend told me it fully stocked and on the floor as well, as if to say Russia knows how to prepare.

            There always seemed to be people standing in line to buy the stuff. I had two professors who visited the USSR in its waning days and both of them told me that the USSR economy in those days was focused mainly on producing industrial goods and nearly neglected common consumer goods, since manufacturing “industrial” goods (basically, Factory A making widgets for Factory B, Factory B making doohickeys for Factory C, and so on) added much more to the mystical GDP than low-priced consumer goods did.

            “There’s a new spirit abroad in the land. The old days of ‘grab and greed’ are on their way out. We’re beginning to think of what we owe the other fellow, not just what we’re compelled to give him. The time’s coming… when we shan’t be able to fill our bellies in comfort while others go hungry, sleep in warm beds while others shiver in the cold.... And God willing, we’ll live to see that day…” Basil Rathbone,"Sherlock Holmes Faces Death" (Universal 1943)

      In fact, church services were limited to ten people at the height of the lockdown, and now the limit’s 1/4 capacity so long as social distancing is maintained and masks are worn.

      That big dust up last week with the Portland commissioner involved a Lyft driver picking her up from a Ridgefield casino.

      (And now apparently it was a racial thing?)
