Exclamation October 1st, 2020

Well, itís been fun.

In the meantime, what do we do when all of our schedules are significantly reduced this summer? Just sit around on reserve for 6 months? Thanks!

Now who the hell knows. I let my CDL Lapse so I can't just go hop in a truck as a side gig.

And I'm only 41. But in the bottom 10% at DAL.

Haha! Not at all.

Chinese wet markets need to be closed and food safety standards need to be enforced aggressively after this.

It won't ever happen, alas. Plus you've got India, Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar, Indonesia just to name a few. All places where wet markets thrive.

Some of the best food I've eaten in my life has come from wet markets in these countries. Literally tens of millions of people make their living by selling at these markets. I can't imagine an actual government crackdown across all of SE Asia and mainland China. Impossible to enforce. I'm sure the PRC will make a show of closing some markets, but give it a few months and they'll be right back open.

And so the cycle will begin again...
