I wouldn't mind going to LA if it was like this all the time .

What's the point if everything is closed?

Like the man said, "You're not 'in traffic,' you are the traffic." Too many people. I just hope all the shorebirds and other wildlife are enjoying the absence of humans-----while they can. The air sure is nice and clean.

you know... urban birds are more likely struggling and becoming more desperate/brave due to the severe drop in food supply since basically nobody is eating outside anymore and leaving scraps.

Yes, big dense cities like New York are having unusual rat problems since there are no restaurant scraps in dumpsters etc. for the rats to survive on, they are resorting to cannibalism.

AMEN to all of that! There are just too damned many of us. I am loving the wildlife that is venturing out and enjoying our absence. It's heartening, but we will just destroy it when it all opens back up again.

I've also noticed a big upturn in mask-compliance among hard-hit groups that weren't as compliant before. Soemtimes it takes a stick not a carrot. If we woke up coughing after smoking our first pack of cigarettes or had aching knees & fatigue as soon as we reached 20# overweight, it would go a long way to making us aware in time to change our behavior early enough and easily enough, not to bring on grief to ourselves later. I can think of many had-I-but-known things like that in my own life.

The population is all at Costco in line behind barricades that slowly get them inside to be disappointed with what is no there, waiting for Toilet paper. The rats want to bring the plague back.
Irony--finally there parking spaces and you can't park. But I bet meter people are still out there looking for victims, especially in Santa Monica --the gotcha city.

All the people protesting to "Liberate" places are only contributing to the length of this virus. We'll see second waves of it. Just watch. Stay in, stay home, wear a mask if you must go out and wash, wash, wash those hands! We can do this, people. We must.
