#1 Will it stop the spread? No.

Will it flatten out the infection curve so we don't overwhelm our medical system? Yes.

#2 It would be fascinating if Trump's ban gave fuel to brexit-style movements throughout the EU.

#3 No more boorish American tour pigs, so there you go. The Turkish hired ISJV mercenaries Libyans will make up the difference in volume.

Darth nails it.

What I find fascinating is that the sportsballers' risk assessment found that it is better to cancel the rest of the season.

All I ask, is that if there are no fans in the arena then leave the announcers out of it too and just do sounds of the game...or will what the players say be TV safe? Shit, most of the crowd noise is canned anyways.

#6 the EU "isn’t in the habit of shooting from the hip."

Contact shots to the back of the head are more your style?

#8 I seem to have lost the memo.
Are we opposed to this because:
a) Trump is pointlessly doing pointless things that won't make any difference
b) Trump is taking unilateral action which will destroy the global economy and literally make him Hitler?

It's so hard to keep up.
