What's it like to have enough disrcetionary income to shell out $2500-$3500 / month for a rental? On top of your primary residence?  Asking for a friend.
Income statistics are distorted. Wealth statistics are more useful. And there appears to be a lot of wealth out there (that is very difficult to trace). The wealth gap is probably even bigger than we think it is.
Yup. When studio apartments go for a million in Manhattan, you kind of think that revolution is right around the corner.

Yeah, Einstein. It actually "originated" in China. Keep up with the good work.
C’mon Benny. You must know what that means.....otherwise you’re the Einstein.

It means they have not had “community spread”, where it is transmitted from an infected person to a loved one, co-worker, or somebody else that you have had an encounter with. It means they acquired it elsewhere and traveled to Essex county, where they then sought medical care.

Yeah, I know what it means. It means blame someone else for this problem. But, hey, could we have some of your tax dollars before you leave? We love your tax dollars.

Edit: This is all a preview of what we're going to hear in a month from bumfuck Texas and Arkansas. New Yorkers are going to be blamed for their deaths, not their behavior or obesity issues that made them more prone to all this.

Re: City slickers are using VT has their virus hideout

I'm not "blaming" anybody, not like our Dear Leader. I'm just trying to say that we're all in this together. But, yeah, as a downstater who lived upstate for three years, I'm pretty familiar with the attitudes many have up there for anybody who lives below Poughkeepsie. You know, the people who actually paid for their hospital.

This is why the "us vs. them" thing is so dumb. There's always a "them" to blame if you're creative enough (Donald Trump got elected by blaming "them" - immigrants, black people, Democrats, etc.)

Sadly, it appears to be getting worse. Lots of City vs. Country shit on my Facebook.

How about "Human Race vs. Virus".... and if you've solved that and you're feeling spunky, how about "Human Race vs. Climate Change"?

I don't need Facebook for that. There's plenty to go around here.

Protecting your own is nothing new. Try getting in between a mamma bear and her cubs, see how that works out for you.

How do you define a slicker?  The wiki definition: "a person who is smooth and persuasive but untrustworthy"

If people own property in Vermont, or anywhere, they have the right to use it, within the guidelines.
What about the reverse? Confirmed cases in Vermont and the North Country....Dog may even be a carrier. Traveling downstate to see Maw and Paw.
