I should have added "Not that the symmetry makes it any better." I liked Post-Modernism back in the early 80s...I have since recovered.

 

Its ok. We've all been there. Just like when we all thought as teenagers that its was the cool thing to not take things seriously, or be responsible for anything, or to do nothing.

I ate at Finn Hall with my cousin from Wharton last nite. He loved downtown. I can only imagine our city center in about 5 to 10 years.

Exactly as it does now with no new towers for years to come if the Corona crap hype and the downturn in oil have any say in the matter. It could be a gloomy, gloomy decade for Houston.

It's definitely a threat but you also have to realize this virus could be seasonal. Meaning, by May, there may be a large decrease in new cases by then. Hopefully by the summer time things have somewhat calmed.... but Houston needs to prepare for the fall. Chances are this hotel will be delayed since we see an across the board slash in people travelling.

You shouldn't go overboard on both ends of the spectrum. You have to take it seriously, but we shouldn't be panicking.

 

Yes, it can kill, but 80% of cases are classified as mild and can be treated from home. The ones we really need to worry about are the elderly, or anyone over the age of 60. I'm honestly okay with the measures companies and people are putting in place to curve the effects of the virus.

 

That being said, this will accelerate the recession. I'm more concerned with the overall economic impact than I am the physical impact, H1N1 infected nearly 60 million Americans and killed over 12,000 Americans alone: almost no one talks about it. But again, that isn't grounds to treat the virus lightly.
