Loaner cars are a bit different, as the dealer and the manufacturer treat those as a “sold” vehicle even though the manufacturer warranty usually doesn’t start until it’s actually sold to a retail customer. Some of it is actually illegal. https://www.nytimes.com/2016/08/01/business/why-monthly-auto-sales-numbers-may-not-be-what-they-seem.html ... more »

Her deaths are overstated by about 50% for the first year of the outbreak. This virus will probably surpass the deaths from 12 months of the swine flu in the first 40 days or so since the first US death. That should wake people up a little bit.....

The mortality rate is obviously complicated, and with widespread diseases like the seasonal flu there is a fair amount of estimation used. But to even estimate the mortality rate from Covid-19, for example, dividing the number of current deaths by the ... more »

Well, based on past history..... Oh wait, we’ve never quite had this happen! To be honest, even though a lot of people thought that I was an early alarmist I was kind of shocked when all the schools closed, sports leagues shut down, etc. I’m not sure ... more »

Michael, for what it’s worth I think your team did pretty well during this shortened season and really hope that your funding for next year is good. I know that sponsors want their product/business represented well and you did a great job on that front. ... more »

I probably didn’t get it right initially, but I always thought that it was primarily a 250SX team and that the early West Coast SX rounds and any Nationals were bonus/optional. If any of that is basically the case, then the riders parting at least makes ... more »

First US death was Feb 29. 34 days later, the total was 7,404. So far today, another 839 for a total of 8,243. The curve doesn't seem to have flattened yet.......

Dirty riding and punishable contact on an MX/SX track is much like pornography. I can’t exactly define it, but I know it when I see it.....

No, if YOUR argument won’t withstand going to the extreme, then the problem is in your argument..... These are your words, not mine. “its a matter of what is best for the majority of the country”. Or are you now backpedaling from that?

It should be very clear that the map is comparing infections in different areas, not representing the per capita infections as you seemed to believe. It’s even more obvious when you visit the map site itself and use the interactive functions.

Just to be clear, are you saying that as long as 50.001% of the population (a majority) wouldn’t die, then there should be no actions that cause economic ramifications to those people and we should go about things without restrictions..... As long as ... more »

No, but maybe it’s because I understand how to read a relative map like that one.

Hopefully the number continues to be “low enough” for you to feel like it is a joke. If we waited until it seemed like not a joke, it’d be far too late to do anything to help.

They just have to convince more of the shareholders, really. Obviously the holders of 2% of the voting stock won't get their way if the other 98% vote against them, but they only have to convince another 48.1% of the shareholders to agree......

Leverage, obviously. M&A transactions don't have to occur with straight cash.
