Sad news, indeed. We must hope that others here will be moved to try harder. No effort, no precaution is too small. Wear the masks.

I learned a couple of nights ago that a guy I used to play when I first got to STL and was learning to play 1pocket just died of Covid.

RIP, Jim Lassiter.

That’s definitely bad if true. I couldn’t find it in AZ land. There are lots of rooms closed around the country. I know I couldn’t play pool in California, Washington, New York, and Louisiana. I did play in Idaho, Florida, and Ohio. Most there didn’t wear masks and from what it seems like to me, there’s much less COVID problems in the states that allow pool playing and going to restaurants. If you ask me we should close Walmart and layoff most of the government workers, then we’d see a drastic decline in Covid.

Yes it’s true about Bob and Ray. Both super nice guys and Bob was an excellent one pocket player and one of my regular games. But not true about the 15 other guys or ICU that I know of. One other regular was in the hospital fir a planned heart issue (longtime valve thing). That said I have not been there since February/March though I stay in touch with several guys. This whole thing stinks.
