  1. What a bummer. Bars will be closed. Meaning less spread of virus by the idiots primarily under 30 who seem to lack brains or desire to care about their fellow citizens, AND, there will be less drunk driving, thus less accidents and less mayhem on the highways, AND, less violence AT the bars.
    Sounds like a win win win.
