Money talks more to some than others

Post by cruiser » Thu Mar 12, 2020 9:31 am

So, with all the Coronavirus going on around the world and the virus can stay in the air
for several hours, why hasn't entertainment parks, like Disneyland,, etc;, not closing until
further?

Many might just do that.

Tokyo Disneyland shut down last week. Not so for the American ones.

Princess cruise lines finally shut down and I just got word that the Dana Point Festival of the Whales is cancelled.

Otherwise, schools (K-JC) and businesses are saying to keep going until somebody gets sick. Hopefully it'll be somebody else and not you. SMDH

Does this whole response seem like wading into the pool slowly vs. jumping right in to anyone else? Things will shut down in the next week or so anyway. Why not just do it now and get it out of the way?

Hey kids! Let's all run back and forth across the freeway until somebody gets hit! Or, in Disneyland's case, until a few hundred get hit.

Turns out Newsom exempted theme parks from the guidelines. Must be big contributors.

This must be a new speed record for observing that "this thread didn't age well"...things are changing by the minute

With every other form of entertainment being postponed or cancelled looks like the big winners in this will be Kindle and Netflix...

They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

I saw somewhere that Santa Anita was going to run races without fans. How do you do that in a sport where the betting pays the purses? :eh?:
