The Courtyard at the Virginia Beach oceanfront was running at like 85% midweek last month. I've gathered that this was/is a common state of affairs at least in Virginia Beach (it was a pretty good...

I won't *stay* 75 nights, but due to a few stays before Winnie the Flu shut everything down (plus 53 "free" nights due to the CC and being a prior-year titanium) I will probably limp in by the end of...

You've had something like 40m unemployment claims, but how many of those have gotten jobs since then? Or, for that matter, are "repeat filings"? But I agree that unemployment/disemployment is up by...
