OPINION: We should only shut down things for a week at a time


I wonder if the decision makers shutting down things long term would have the same plan if their paycheck was stopped for the length of the suspension as many people are experiencing.

I hope the answer would be yes, but we can only imagine.

When the decision makers shut things down for two months, they don't have to make any decisions for two months. It makes their life easier. Two-month vacation with pay vs. two months without pay for many.

Wish they would look at the numbers and only extend the chaos a week at the time. There are those who think this thing is an overblown hoax and there are others that think the world is coming to an end. The answer probably lies in the middle.
