    "They are more a kin to a British tabloid than an actual news organization."
    I always got that impression by mostly the aggressive photography.

    Valid for all people that lost their job. According to government calculations, 25.000 people. Only if you have lost your job will you be able to apply. They are also working on a package for all the undocumented migrants on the island.

    I saw this on the news this morning on CBS This Morning or whatever it was Stu had on, but only heard part of it because my son was texting. Here is an article https://www.ocregister.com/2020/03/1...tal-in-orange/. This is the guy who came as the consultant to WEB.

    I went to SuperFoods this morning for stropwafles, gouda, wipes for the plane, etc. Workers were outside. They were only letting a specific number of people into the store at a time. You had to take a cart, which they were wiping down, to insure people kept their distance from one another. Next I went to the rum store, which is shut up tight and finally I was able to get my car washed.

    Hope much longer are you there? It must be surreal being the only one outside.

    Surreal is the right word...
    Guests are invited to leave before March 24th as hospital beds are for Arubans...
