Speaking of health care workers, I really have a lot of empathy for them right now. They are doing heroic work, and many are dying for it. I think I heard 50 doctors from Italy died so far. Talk about sacrifice.

I went to Ocean City yesterday to visit my grandmother. She stayed on her balcony. There are PA license plates everywhere.

Hey - here's a great way to pass some time


You could start with Henry Charlton Beck. If you haven't already read these, you really should




Or John McPhee's classic


Another good one


Or how about this?


I'm sure there are more, but these are some favorite titles from my own library. I checked, but unfortunately they don't have Harshberger. :(

Happy reading... your book reports are due on Monday. :clint:

Are you surprised that people from Pennsylvania own property in Ocean City? ;)

I don't know, this is a tricky subject. If you own a home in another state, should you not be allowed to go to it? Have not checked recently, but doesn't NJ actually have more cases than PA? And state boundaries seem rather artificial when it comes to how germs spread. So, for example, if you live in Cherry Hill or Haddonfield and the rate of infection is higher there than Chatsworth, should you be prohibited from visiting the Pines?

If you are sick, seems pretty clear that you should stay home. Or if you are coming from a place with a high rate of infection, you should self-quarantine. But I don't know about blanket travel restrictions based on where you live. I guess it would be simpler if this were China, where the government can easily restrict travel, track you wherever you go and arrest you if you break the rules. But is that what we really want here? I suppose it's possible that this will have to be considered if things get too bad.

If you choose Jersey Genesis make sure you start with the Aserdaten Chapter. That to me is Beck at his best in regards to his books. However, his old newspaper articles put the books to shame. So much more interesting.

Of course they should, and I have seen no reports that anyone is not being allowed to do that. The posted NH link is about finding out of state residents and having them comply with the 14 day quarantine order issued in that state, not arrest them, although if they do not comply that is a possibility. Seems reasonable to me. The stuff going on in other states is a bit more troublesome.

I also have a property in another state.
The problem is people don't bring their local ICU beds with them when they travel. On another note, I think I just heard thunder.

Just thinking out loud, I really have not formed an opinion. Aren't license plates a rather arbitrary way of doing this? What if you live in NH but go to NY to work or visit family? Why shouldn't you also be stopped when you return to NH?

I suspect in the coming days we may see more stringent stay at home orders.
