This is going to suck more than i originally thought.   I was setting up a 10 day trip to the Big Island in late march....had already been putting it off.

The wife doesnt want to sit on a plane with others now....and im sure we arent the only ones.

I am turning from optimist to pessimist quickly.

I'm going on my honeymoon to Hawaii in the first week of May. My fiancee and I are discussing the possibility of postponing when we meet with our travel agent next week.

Oh for +++++s sake, wtf does Pence know about disease.

This is a job for professionals, as in scientists and doctors.

Chill out, someone at the top has to take "point".

Pence isn't moving to the laboratory, I'm sure he'll appoint and delegate to someone knowledgeable, and half of us will hate his choice.

I'm kind of looking forward to the picture of Pence touching the bio-hazard vial that says "DO NOT TOUCH!" :lol:

Do you think the coronavirus is the reason or is it just an excuse for a correction?

Think it's the virus.

I think it's a lot more widespread in china than they are reporting.  Our window locks for one of our lines ran out of inventory yesterday (china sourced)  It's going to be at least two weeks before we can get new ones.  The plant builds 10,000 windows a month and now we have no locks.  The beauty of on time manufacturing with disparate suppliers.

The supply chain for pharmaceutical components is being hit pretty hard. It may be difficult to get something as simple as pennicillin.

Dow Jones down more than 1100.  California monitoring 8,400 people for coronavirus.  Many of those a probably people who came into contact with the Solano patient and who came into contact with people who had contact with the Solano patient.  As governor Newsom said earlier today, the state uses well developed protocols for dealing with contagious diseases.

Bernie's momentum is certainly playing a factor, as is Corona Virus which is playing a larger factor.

Actually the markets were happy with Bernie being the front runner.  They believed Trump was going to skull phuck him and the low tax low regulation environment would continue

This coronavirus is a much more important story today than politics.  Why can't you clear your brain of your political leanings for 5 seconds?

Americans are going to die from this disease and all you seem to care about is how to blame the stock market drop on a Democratic candidate.

Lol, just like the other scares over the years.  I am sure a few will die.  Doubt it will be a fraction of those killed by the flu this year.
