#7 COVID helped business realize they don't need an expensive building and most white collar work can be done remotely.

Cities will shrink as the white collar people leave. Only blue collar, low density and lower wage will remain.

#14 If they shut down the Biergärten, I think there would be an up-roar, possibly worse than when Andechs quit selling Starkbier on weekends years ago.

#15 Berlin protest numbers understated by media/gov't.

#16 The Sierra Nevada foothills are getting inundated with people fleeing Sacramento and the bay area. Funny how you can tell just by looking at people that they're not from here.
