    I read or heard on the news that this was true. Well, all are 'pigs at the trough'. Ugly, ugly people. I know a guy who owns 5 bars. All his employees are being paid by him during this crisis. He is even letting them work on updating his places if they wish to help. My neighbor is one of his employees and she thinks the world of this small business man.
