Great Point Skunk! Bring the Bible to the bar or BYOB to the pew. I'm in either way but I would need to get a bible first. Are the bookstores open?

I totally agree on the churches, wth are they thinking? Also in full agreement with your assessment of DeSantis/Trump relationship.

Both should be closed because there is no 6ft separation. All people need to stay at home especially people over 50 years old.

Nice.

Okay, so Shooters' World remains open.

But very difficult to maintain six feet of separation, especially at a crowded range.

I won't be going back anytime soon.

All recreational, excuse me, exercise is ok as long as you keep your 6' distance. List of essential businesses basically includes everything, beaches are ok.
There really is no stay at home order, am I correct?
No you are wrong. We are all in this fight against a really bad virus. Stop with the childish behavior.

I know at least one person who thinks that is more essential than Publix.

Not to worry, the government will take care of you. Any way they see fit.

Here's an interesting one. I have trouble walking because a bad foot injury sustained years ago. The only exercise that I get is by riding my bicycle. I was experiencing some breathing problems recently and my doc put me on some new medications that have improved my breathing and have allowed me to ride my bike again.
I started riding every day and have been feeling much better. It is really the only time that I would get out in the fresh air and sunshine and get some exercise.
Alas, last week I began noticing a problem with my bike and brought it to a repair shop. They diagnosed the problem and I made an appointment for this morning. When I went to drop off the bike I found that they are closed.
So now I'm stuck at home with very few options for outdoor exercise which my doctor says is the best thing I can do for my heart condition.
The problem with the bike has gotten worse over the past week and it is now almost unrideable. The repair shop also said that if I let the problem go too long, it would be impossible to repair.
So how is it not essential that I get my bike repaired?

They simply have to close every other lane.
