I'm a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. the great point is to bring them the real facts.

I went downtown today and it was eerily quiet. Times Square isn't quiet at 3 in the morning on a weekday.  With the city on lockdown, many people are working from home or not at all. Restaurants and bars are closed. so are movies, theaters, churches, and other venues where people will congregate. The coronavirus pandemic has affected how we go about our daily.

Some might say that it's the new normal. I like to think of this as a time we need to choose who we want to be as human beings. It will be on each individual to do this soul searching. Things will not be the same when this crisis passes.

Don't ever remember New York City on lockdown. Many businesses are closed or doing limited work. There's only delivery and take out at restaurants and eateries. I have been out but on a limited basis. Can't keep me down. Been keeping in contact with family and friends. 

It's also a good time for quiet assessment and reflection. Which things are really important and which are not. Maybe those projects long put off can be done. There's much to consider. This is a bridge I don't believe any of us has crossed. 

Follow all the directions by medical folks 

Don't be in close proximity to people who are sick. See a doctor if you have the symptoms.

Mental health is just as important. See a therapist if you feel triggered or depressed.

Drink plenty of water, vegetable, and fruit juices 

Keep in contact with family, friends, and neighbors.


This will be over soon enough.

As a huge sports fan, I'm disappointed that the men and women's basketball tournaments were cancelled. So were spring training in baseball, hockey, and pro basketball. In my own famous words, I'LL MANAGE.

LGBTQ and non-conforming people will not be counted in the 2020 census. This is wrong and the definition of discrimination.


There's no excuse for the young people not knowing who the heroes or heroines are or were.
