I don’t want to see people from those regions passing through and spreading the virus here again. I think it’s time the governor slapped a 14 day quarantine for anybody traveling here from Texas, Florida, South Carolina and a few other states.
Apparenty PA is among only 3 states that has indeed truly flatten the curve. I'm guessing the other two are NY and NJ.

I though Illinois was one as well. Either way, it shows that states like PA, NY, NJ, ILL have done a good job.

As you already know, it's about leadership. Tom "I'm quiet, but affective" Wolf really rose to the occasion. MI seems to be doing well too.

This might be the most appropriate thread to ask this question. What is the deal with the homeless camp on the Parkway? Is that an indefinite setup? What exactly are people trying to accomplish, if anything from this camp?

This is where the Calder Museum is supposed go (at some point), just wondering if this will turn into a City Hall 2011 situation?

Dunno. I have not been there to see.

The supposed Calder Museum( who knows if that will happen now) is supposed to be on SE corner of 22nd and the Parkway.

I assume you are talking about "City Hall 2011" which was a Occupy Wall St thing and happened before the closure of the old Dilworth Plaza which is now Dilworth Park.

Tbh, I'm a lot more concerned about infected people drifting in from red state hot spots. July 4th Welcome America stuff was canceled a long time ago, thank goodness.

I'm in my 60s and have a few health problems so I'm not rushing out to do anything.
