Scary.  But (godIhopenot) possibly necessary.

If you need a second magazine, its time to call in air support.

God created Man, Col. Sam Colt made him equal, John Moses Browning turned equality to perfection, Gaston Glock turned perfection into plastic fantastic junk.

MrsMac read it yesterday when I posted it on AP. She said, "that was a dark story."

I said, "Edgy not dark." LOL Semantics.

 All fiction is based on some facts which are needed to make the story believable and it is just that, believable.
 Great piece of fiction because it makes you think and question, will it happen, could it happen, is it morally right or wrong?

Well written.  Lets hope that it doesnt become necessary.  What makes it edgy is that it sure seems like we are getting closer every day.

Thanks JM.
Maybe this is what caused the Michigan Gov to allow opening 2 regions for Friday.
Ha ha.

   Too bad it's fiction.  As Johny noted, flattening the curve is one thing, extended unconstitutional overreach is another.  At this point, I think most thinking adults know what precautions are necessary for personal protection, and shutdown regulations aren't needed.  The "curve" and the Constitution have not only been flattened, but trampled.

Yupper.

I am starting to focus on the Manchu Queue being similar to the masks that many states are forcing people to wear.
