HAPPINESS: No fretting, hesitating, calculating, or pontificating

I’ll get “concerned” when “Corona” aka Wuhan virus fatalities reach that of “normal” flue death rates.  Per John Hopkins, flu causes around 50k deaths every year.  Again, mostly among the elderly. 

The 24 hour news cycle (“if it bleeds, it leads”) is whipping “We, The Sheeple” into a frenzy. 

The stock market has yet to take into account the fantastically low price of oil.  Gas prices, airlines driving cost factor, and trucking expense will drop like a rock.  If I was a retail investor, I’d be buying  — cruise lines, air travel, and consumer goods.  I’d be selling all the “legacy” industries. 

IMHO.  In six months, Wuhan will be like the “bird flu”  —  forgotten.  No need to panic. 

Just take normal precautions with more attention to the “most common touch points” (i.e., door knobs, ATMs, bars, restaurants, Post Offices, doctors’ offices, and such).  Have to relax; look both ways when you cross the street so as not to get hit by bus or drunken driver.

Calm common sense. ZZZZzzzzz!
