  1. In case anyone is wondering “why us?” … I briefly left the house yesterday to purchase essential grocery staples at the Griffin Kroger (the closest store to my home). While I was driving away with my purchases, I noticed a traffic jam entering & leaving the Lowe’s overflowing parking lot next door. With my windows safely rolled-up, I negotiated the mayhem to better determine who all was defying the state-wide “shelter in place” order by stopping for NON-ESSENTIAL items at a DIY store. To my surprise & chagrin, the majority of the car tags had “Fayette” at the bottom. I also noticed the longest line was for mulch & pine stray … and only about 10% of the careless idiots were wearing protective gloves & masks. Shame on you, my friends & neighbors!
