Default Lebanon show is a go

Just wanted to spread the word that the Lebanon show is still on for Saturday. We are aware of the virus concerns, but the overwhelming response we have gotten is people want the show to go on. We look forward to hopefully seeing many of you this Saturday.

That's the stupidest move I've ever heard when the whole planet is NOT doing what you're doing.


When will you resign?

"Who was most severely impacted during the 2014-2015 season?

While influenza virus infection can be serious for anyone, hospitalization data indicate people 65 years and older were more severely impacted by the 2014-2015 flu season, relative to other age groups and relative to previous seasons.

Among people 65 years and older, there were an estimated 8.3 million illnesses, 4.7 million medical visits and 758,000 flu hospitalizations during the 2014-2015 season. CDC estimates that the overall burden of influenza disease estimated across all age groups was 40 million flu illnesses, 19 million flu-associated medical visits, and 970,000 flu-associated hospitalizations. See Estimated Influenza Illnesses and Hospitalizations Averted by Vaccination United States, 2014-15 Influenza Season for more information.

These data are consistent with observations of the burden of flu illness in the elderly from previous years: data from statistical modeling studies looking at flu seasons from 1979 to 2001 estimate that as many as 60% of flu-related hospitalizations occurred among people 65 years and older.

How many children died from the flu during the 2014-2015 season?

As of February 1, 2016, a total of 148 laboratory-confirmed, influenza-associated pediatric deaths occurring during the 2014-2015 flu season were reported to CDC from 41 states and New York City.

Since influenza-associated pediatric mortality became a nationally-notifiable condition during the 2004-2005 season, the total number of influenza-associated pediatric deaths has ranged from 34 to 171. (This excludes the 2009 pandemic, when 358 pediatric deaths were reported to CDC during April 15, 2009, through October 2, 2010.)

More information about reported pediatric deaths is available at FluView: Influenza-Associated Pediatric Mortality."

Gee, These numbers are so, so much worse than coronavirus. How many RC events were cancelled then? Did the NBA postpose the season? Did the NCAA stop attendance at March Madness? Did the world go mad?

And that was a typical year, too. Who was president then?

The media wasn't in a hype frenzy to try to discredit the president. Media hype is fueling much of the panic.

China isn't so happy and you didn't show their 2014-2015 data. This would be a good post and valid AFTER this virus runs its course. Post again in 3 months or so....then compare data. Disneyland closed in CA. Some take precautions, since we're close to 60 and not in our infancy.

In the end its all about personal choice. Vaca trips, business or pleasure etc are still personal choices.

Until that choice harms others later on, then it's not so personal. But for the moment, yes, that's correct, and shortsighted rationale not to be more cautious when it's a big swap meet, and not a necessary trip. Vacations are cancelled, businesses are closing. Get it?

Had to laugh the other day people wrestling over toilet paper in Costco. Then I saw a cartoon a room full of TP piled up like a throne and a skeleton sitting in the middle. The caption read "But my azz is clean" LOL.

Take reasonable precautions. I don't attend any large events sporting or otherwise. Any events I intend on attending are more towards the middle/end of summer but I am not going to barricade the door and dig out the guns and ammo quite yet. Had no plans to go out of country on vacation this year anyway. You can choose to limit your contact with others but you cant limit who they have been in contact with.

What do you do lock the doors, turn out the lights and pull in the welcome mat? The virus lives on hard surfaces for 72 hours so when the mailman coughs on your mail and you pick it up just saying.......

Yup, reasonable precautions, like cancelling the Lebanon swap meet and peddle some airplanes at a later time? Touching mail doesn't give you the virus through your finger tips. You should do more research.

To my knowledge, no one who is at any level of risk has been compelled in any way to expose themselves. Those who are afraid of contracting this virus have been and continue to be free to lock themselves away from the rest of the world for as long as they want.

Jeopordizing the livelihood of countless Americans who are willing and want to work is a step too far.
