Facing a pandemic, more and more home gardeners are planting their own food, providing not just a safe source of nutrition in unsettled times, but also escape. There has been a dramatic rise -- as much as 50-percent -- in online traffic on residential networks that WERE NOT built for data-heavy two-way video conference calls. New York Times columnist Philip Galanes discusses social dilemmas for those wrestling with new kinds of conflicts created by the pandemic, and why he's an optimist about the current crisis. For patients of a Bronx, N.Y. mental health center whose doors have been closed by the pandemic, counseling via phone is a lifeline during a catastrophically anxious time. And comedy legends Mel Brooks, Carl Reiner and George Takei have advice for the "Next-Greatest Generation."

Let's partner for all of it. Learn morning. I'm Jane Foley and this is one Sunday morning. Back in New York. Although still not back home on our set, like so many things for so many of us that will have to wait a few weeks. We begin this morning with a look at the numbers. The number of coronavirus cases exploded this past week, as did the number of those we've lost, and then there's the havoc this pandemic is wreaking on the nation's economy. That's where will begin this morning. First things first with money correspondent Jill's messenger and then at a time when all of us are using the Internet star David Pogue if the Internet can handle all of us logging on at the same time.

That's our cover story is more and more Americans do their work and take their classes at home over video more of them are having problems with the Internet it's almost as though it were offering here every third word that would freeze completely and that would be it. There a lot of traffic is increasing pretty dramatically, especially during working hours on these residential networks as we move our entire lives online. Can the Internet hold up ahead on Sunday morning and then it's on to the tall, all of this is taking on our emotional health.

Susan Spencer is on the case, the stress, the anxiety, the emotions that are provoked by this crisis are truly significant as New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo recently made clear mental health is but one more casualty of this pandemic. So where do you think you'd be if in fact they had discontinued therapy altogether. I don't even want to think about Katie therapy in the age of quarantine later on Sunday morning.

They say laughter is the best medicine.

And this morning Ben Mankiewicz has proof he's in conversation with comedy legends Mel Brooks and Carl Reiner Maria yet. What a cutie did you know they are college legends best friends in World War II veterans yet is when Brad we rallied for the concrete work; I last one.

Okay ahead on Sunday morning.

Tracy Smith looks at the return of the victory garden. Luke Burbank meets a real pinball wizard maraca asked what's the deal with toilet paper. Once again Jim Gaffigan recaps his families week and more on this Sunday morning 5 April 2020 when we return.

First things first. This past week we took a double hit terrible numbers both on the medical and economic fronts. Here's money correspondent Jill's messenger. Let's be honest there was a lot of good news this past week, coronavirus has now killed more than 7000 Americans and the government came out with this stunning prediction that there could eventually be 100 to 240,000 deaths in the country. Meanwhile, the economic casualties are starting to add up the March jobs report was a disaster in the last full week of that month. More than 6.6 million Americans filed for unemployment benefits. That's on top of more than 3 million the week before. Keep in mind the previous high was in 1982 when just under 700,000 people filed what was your reaction to now having two weeks of initial claims coming in at nearly 10 million numbers of your shocking robot is an economics professor at Harvard was written about the last eight centuries. Economic crises we've been shipped by what is almost an alien invasion. It's a natural catastrophe that catastrophe has now spread to retailers like Macy's gap and Victoria's Secret, who announced their sidelining hundreds of thousands of workers think people are going to look at these numbers they're going to wake up and pour through the newspapers and realize that where you talk about. This is the worst since the depression and there are no imagine that soon will be lining up for bread. Can you really help take some of the anxiety out of that kind of conjuring up images for us book the public wants for your much richer than we were in the Great Depression. We can afford to do things we couldn't afford to do. I think the government is moving that direction. I think the financial markets are still believed it will be back to normal by the end of the year or early next year and if the right. That's very different than the Great Depression, which lasted 10 years, about those financial markets. The numbers from the first three months of the year are in and it's not pretty. The Dow had its worst quarter since 1987.23% crude oil saw its biggest quarterly price drop in history down 66%, meaning this is a sign of the times the commodity with the biggest gain orange juice up 23%. So keep drinking plenty of fluids. Wash your hands and let's keep each other safe money correspondent Jill's lessons are our thanks. As most of us have figured out the Internet keeps us together when were supposed to stay apart. But what if were all going online at once a question for our David Pogue like almost everyone else in America corporate events producer Mark Dukes has been working from home weekly. It hasn't exactly been smooth sailing three weeks 33 and the last week. My Internet has been crap about only big time work keeps cutting out my resume meetings I get dropped when I need to open up a particular website slower than usual.

It's really quite the belligerent child is not the only definitely see really dramatic rises in the use of Internet traffic, especially during the workday, especially on these residential networks anywhere from about 20% increases two weeks ago to closer to 40 or 50% now Internet expert Josephine Wolf is a professor at Tufts University, how much should we worry about getting overloaded by everybody at home on video chat. So far we've been doing pretty well in urban areas of the United States is very reasonable to be concerned that some of this real-time video chat communication that relying on very soon if not already start to experience a certain amount lacked a certain amount of jitter in the delivery to our home. According to Wolf, the Internet's path to your home has basically three parts. The servers like the Netflix computers that send out our movies.

Then there are the fat high-speed connections run by service providers like Comcast and Verizon.

The third part are going to need lower capacity residential networks so we sometimes call the last mile of the network that actually get to your home learned that most people are concerned about in terms of handling extra capacity. Good news is that you really from beginning to deal with crisis original patients from the 60s through the war.

Matthew Prince is the CEO of cloud where a company to provide security and other services for big websites is a map and you got a lot of different roads that you can drive two points and spread out, and you won't have as much congestion on any one of you. Well, that sounds great yet European Union Netflix and YouTube have actually degraded their picture quality to avoid overloading the Internet print says that's because the Internet's wiring is different in Europe. I lie a lot, especially DSL telephone lines US where most of the activity is over the cable system. The telephone lines is and if you have cable you get much faster Internet speed into your house out of it.

The cable system was really built originally. Lots of TV programs and bring them in your house was built so well to take concept from your house and send it back out the lesser same problems.

Problems are coming because it will also try to do multiple experiencing jitters, pickups is the reader could do about it. The quickest way to do that is often turn off your video if you're doing something like this so that you're just trying to get the audio you will you do that soon. It looks like so if I do that right there have to be reserved just for the audio so that at least I can hear what's going on.

There are people in this country who don't have high-speed Internet all right and that's a huge problem right now. It's always been a huge problem.

I hope that one of the lessons will take away from this is the importance of really investing in the infrastructure and upgrading the infrastructure for everybody for everybody else cloud where CEO Matthew Prince says the Internet won't slow to a stop. During this crisis, but I think that is really holding off very very well. Eventually, presumably our lives and our Internet patterns will return to normal Mark Felix for one can't wait for me to look forward to my lengthy commute into New York City and working in a real office. I will miss being home but not all the trips to the refrigerator, victory gardens played a big role in the homefront during the dark days of World War II. Now Tracy Smith tells us there back this week.

The flowers at Rogers Garden City, Newport Beach, California are in full dazzling blue. It's as if to remind us that even in the middle of our upended lives.

Spring somehow arrived on time but these days, only the bees seem to be interested in flowers right now.

Nurseries like this one are selling out of vegetables got there after weeks of seeing empty grocery store shelves. Home gardeners are snapping up everything from lettuce to lemon trees, says Rogers Gen. manager Ron Vander half what are customers buying things related to food, they don't want to go out in public, but they also want the safety and security of nutritious food and no better way to do the nothings better than going out to regarding the commitment often avoid onions from seat and now it seems gardening how-to videos are give me sprouting up everywhere stop against the paper and get out and start a garden spot tonight, but grow it yourself food you might say is suddenly just the thing people here say seeing sales have doubled, maybe even tripled and it might surprise you that tomato plants are going at the rate of 800 a day. It's not so surprising.

Certainly not new is the notion of growing your own food when times get tough.

It all started back in 1917 when the government called on people to grow more gardens to free up food for soldiers fighting overseas in World War I by the 1940s same idea different name. God the after we come grow form for victory in our own backyard and grow they did every available patch of land even in the shadow of New York's Chrysler building. All told, an estimated 20 million World War II victory gardens produce nearly 40% of the nations fruits and vegetables. The goals today are quite as ambitious but having a home garden still beats another trip to the grocery store.

Are you spending more time out here.

Christina Nylander is a pediatrician who thought planting veggies might get her two kids to eat more of them. But in the end it's not just about the food, with all the watering and the weeding your own cove in 19 victory garden can produce what might be the most valuable commodity of all these days escape in this time of so much negative news. This could be one of the little positives to come out of it.

We want to replace providing food structure will also want Gordon to be the place where they can do the same. So help you places are really important. The anxiety and stress of these times are a lot for any of us to handle. So where and how to turn for help.

Susan Spencer has announced Teresa Brown has had a life without luxuries or much security or any peace of mind taught me little bit about this feeling of stress that is basically been with you since you were a child or me kind of talk about it. Think about the trauma that I've been through trauma like growing up poor growing up where we lived in apartment that he grew up in neighborhoods that have high crime or went to school where you will bully those things she spent years trying to process those traumas all the while raising her three nieces in New York City. Finally she found help from a therapist.

What kind of things do you talk to the therapist about pretty much what is it I could do to relieve my stress will find tools that help me deal with their situations that have been going through three weeks ago.

She wasn't sure she never see that therapist again. New York State has become the epicenter of the outbreak.

6% of all cases in the world are there. The pandemic meant that mosaic. The not-for-profit mental health center in the Bronx were Teresa goes had no choice but to close its doors to in person visits no one-on-one therapy, no counseling when you realize the magnitude of this pandemic was there a time when you work sure that you'd be able to continue to serve your clients.

Yes that's right me tremendously. Dimitri Friedman is the Executive Director of Mosaic off-limits to visitors and the strange times so we filled her working outside. She says she could not imagine leaving more than a thousand desperate low income clients with nowhere to turn in the midst of a terrifying pandemic.

This takes a very high some people have anxiety. Some people have major depressive illness and mental height, and of course this crisis so we would be seeing people really begin to decompensate so three weeks ago, Friedman staff of 100 took drastic measures switching all mental health counseling to tele-therapy, a fancy name for using the phone they weren't authorized to do so until the pandemic hit and New York State waived its regulations. It seems like this must've been a seachange for you. So we mobilized immediately. Actually, before we even had guidance. What about the challenges in terms of actually helping anybody this way, so there was some resistance from the clients and some resistance from the staff how we can do this.

Is this really work, but quickly people kind of have pulled together and are doing this and doing their part in responding. For what were dealing with now is teletherapy pretty much the ideal tool teletherapy is ideally suited to providing healthcare under the current circumstances and it's being used more now than ever in history and it's a long history says Dr. Jeffrey Lieberman, chair of the psychiatry department at Columbia University College of physicians and surgeons back in 1959, the Nebraska psychiatric Institute first used videoconferencing.

A decade later. Teletherapy consultations were available to troubled travelers at Boston's Logan Airport and about 30 years ago. Tele-psychiatry became a subject of serious study. Do you think really it's as effective as it is to have a one-on-one conversation well, there's actually substantial data from systematic studies which show that it is effective, it better be now more than ever. New research shows that living in quarantine can have grave long-term mental health effects as New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo recently recognized I'm asking psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists were willing to volunteer their time to contact the state more than 6000 people responded no surprise to Dr. Lieberman. This is good to have a population wide effect of PTSD proportions is almost primal.

It's almost apocalyptic in its nature. What are the challenges that the whole teletherapy thing poses in itself. What is lacking the ability to see someone's face to know feel what someone brings into a room by right now right what you mean.

I don't know where connection right now. Katie Riordan is a mental health counselor at Mosaic lately she's been on the phone a lot offering therapy six days a week. About 10 hours a day so what are these weeks been like for you. It's been exhausting and exhausting its it's a straight one of Katie's clients is Teresa Brown who she knows as Terry Terry. He is the guardian of the family and balancing so many different challenges initial educational physical space didn't get rid of problems that existed prior to it coming along right so all these stressors that led people to feelings of helplessness and hopelessness and anxiety and powerlessness before this emerged. Now they're just compounding with with the world as we knew it being shaken up that your challenges Terry Brown's challenge. It's my challenge. Yes I have a lot of anxiety but I'm trying so hard about this because it's not just for me it's for my children and I wonder not understand it, don't panic.

Things will get better for now at least, that may be the best advice of all sure about to see this morning our maraca is on a roll goodbye before he put on a show. I thought because there was going to be a shortage. Maybe I would come and stuck up, but I see someone beat me to the punch. Yup it happened before when the paper's care during the energy crisis of the early 1970s, former CBS news reporter Sally Quinn covered the story. The recent preoccupation with the fuel shortage and shortage a new gap has appeared in the staples of the American household toilet paper shortage filmmaker Brian Gerst made a documentary short about it/yes, toilet paper, you know that people think you're some kind of profit. Now I am not, here's what happened back in December 1973, a congressman from Wisconsin.

Harold releases a statement saying the next thing were worried potential paper shortage is no laughing matter is eventually touch every American. The warning was picked up by late-night King Johnny Carson's writers who left out the potential part. There is an acute shortage of toilet paper in the good old United fit.

We got quit writing on it.

The false alarm sent Carson's audience of almost 20 million running I'm used to being able to go when I want to want to but sadly I think I'm going to have to start carving.

I have people all over the country. Storm supermarkets grabbed his much toilet paper as we possibly could. A month later, CBS News's own Walter Cronkite set the record straight. Paper company citing panic buying on the retail level of implementing an allocation system scrub spokesman said on the phone with rumors of a shortage of excessive demand of redevelopment and then Carson issued a clarification of sorts. All my life and I don't want to be run over the matter created a false toilet paper scare you.

There is no shortage and there is no shortage today, but there is another panic when there is uncertainty in the world people would like to eliminate some of the uncertainty Boston University economics professor Jason Gorski says it's rooted in something called zero risk bias, so buying toilet paper clip ensures that one out their life care is what gives us some degree of reassurance of certainty. Insurance certainty might run onto something else.

But at least you have one of the staples that makes most people feel better now that something we can all get behind. But Everest master read as of toilet paper manufacturer Kimberly-Clark wants to make clear working very closely with partners to ensure to the store shelves.

This temporary shortfall can be corrected in here something to pull you over about 90% of toilet paper, Americans use is faith right here in the USA most important message of people should take away actually plenty of toilet paper is no need to pick a lesson Sally Quinn imparted 25 years ago. Latest study of toilet paper for everybody.

It's just the terror has caused people to hoard, thereby depleting the supply and all for nothing Americans it seems are just shortage scared about toilet paper and everything else really sets Joan has been quarantined in Rome since testing positive for the coronavirus three weeks ago this morning were happy to report things are starting to look up for Seth and for Italy images from Italy are usually a window into the past, but recently it's empty canals tourist sites in streets provided a startling glimpse of the future. Thanks for the next Monday. Anesthesiologist Marco Redondo was the lead author of recommendations designed to help Italian doctors prioritize ICU patients are adequate resources dilemma hospitals in the US now face.

So what should the US be learning from Italy when I hear the music from colleagues and friends, for example, New York City. I think that probably way.

See some of the young fences that had that advantage. Time to prepare pieces a few extra days of containment measures in communities can make an exponential difference in hospitals. What is the lag time between the lock down and when you really see it working. I need at least 10 days probably up to three weeks.

Hospitals in Italy have been sources of infection since early cases were not recognized the Italian government's evolving response has also been criticized initially on Italy's North was locked down and fled south like during the infection now a national lockdown is in place. Italy has boosted surveillance and fine despite its staggering more than 15,000 deaths. Italy has shown encouraging signs this past week is the percentage increase of new infections slowed. The country is prioritizing testing only the most severe cases so that means many others go undetected diagnoses calculations, including those in China have been misleading. Maybe just say that probably the real number of that is for a times more official numbers. This is happening and so this is those are catastrophic numbers. This issue of underreporting is just a chronic one.

John Zellner, Prof. of epidemiology at the University of Michigan. Since testing is key. It's like fighting gravity right it's really hard to beat back the time when you have 12345 cases in your community.

You know where you are and they are you can do with them on a case-by-case basis, but as a number grows, the ability to chase down individual cases just completely goes out the window and were left with these more draconian measures what went so wrong in Italy. The problem is the first Western town where the disease is most so we did not recognize Jesus of the disease that delete was around the lease for five weeks before Dr. Giacomo Caselli is coordinating the response hospitals in hard-hit Lombardy province struggle with the demographic challenge or their cultural factors here in Italy that made the spread worse condition because one of the oldest ablation in the wrong way to slow infections is to change behavior that has not been easy. In late February, just days before he tested positive for COBIT. 19. This top Italian politician tweeted about maintaining normality and rekindling the country's economy usually leave these disease go, we would have the second world war. I don't see having hundreds of thousands of that can can help economy. I would be going in no and then we will stop war no.

While lockdowns made by time. Ultimately, widespread testing and contact tracing are essential to truly defeat this virus as we all understand this new time has changed how we behave in ways large and small, and in case you need a little guidance. Aaron Moriarty knows just who to turn to social cues. I plan to interview writer Philip Alanis CVS Sunday morning and then several people in my office building tested positive for the coronavirus do I need to warn him before I show up at his door. Absolutely it is what every single person in the country is thinking about and worried about all your most recent.

These are the ones that have come in and you matter to turn to at a time like this, and Philip Alanis himself for nearly 12 years he's been the wise and witty writer of social cues. The column that helps readers that the New York Times resolve social dilemmas from how to say no to friends seeking an invite to your summer home to dealing with grief at a cocktail party. You say it's not an advocate column, but it's social question so what do as long as it's about awkward relationship between people. I want to be there to help you and this pandemic has created all kinds of new conflicts to wrestle with the questions that I'm getting on coronavirus are so heartbreaking because they're the regular letters, but they have now an element of danger or an element of something more moving, 15 boy.

I finally have a girlfriend yea I was so excited to ask her to the prom. But our school canceled prom because of the coronavirus. I literally went up to my bedroom and started to cry. The question was, was there anything he could substitute for a problem at his school to make this special moment with his girlfriend still come off and I thought I love this these days.

Alanis, a 57-year-old lawyer is writing his advice column at his home in East Hampton where she and husband, architect Michael Haviland are writing out this pandemic.

Why, what makes you qualified to help people with their social dilemmas. There's a tradition of advice columnist Thursday wrap leaders and landers. They were like lovely young toes who wanted to help people out and so are my as a child Alanis red dear Abby allowed to his parents and younger brothers at the breakfast table.

I love the idea that there would be a problem and there would be definite solution to the problem and dear Abby had Alanis never imagine the problems his family would face when he was 23 and his seemingly serene father took his own life. If you could know my, you wouldn't have been you would think there is a nicer guy. He was so sweet and so strong and so good. The fact that somebody like Alanis was devastated that he had missed the signs, the fact that that could happen to him makes me think that everyone has got something.

He later wrote a novel inspired by his father's suicide.

Masking his pain with humor is before the first call copy. I have a New York Times editor and in 2008 social cues was born when I started I played things for humor. I played things for Snark, I slapped people like the woman who wrote my boyfriend assumed I was Jewish when we met on J date a website for Jewish singles.

Now I'm afraid he's gonna dump me because I didn't tell the truth.

What should I do Alanis was in kind and was Cristiana like a very likely Jewish was in Iraq.

Aside but I said you know where to next Cristiana readers loved it using the column early on related entertainment readers, as opposed to enlightened. It took me four years to figure out the volume of letters that were coming in from people who were really hurting. I think is much as I was hurting but over time the column like Alanis became much more empathetic was a funny writer. Definitely I will give myself but it wasn't what we needed. So his needed advice for the woman on an airplane who took this video of the man punching the back of her reclined seat no excuse for hitting the back of someone's cedar kicking that impulse that she had is the impulse that I hate the impulse to film you and put it on the Internet and hope that she shamed into being a different person he wants to encourage people to be kinder even now in this pandemic panic shoppers up here to fight for toilet paper and groceries someone buys up all the bread say something you want a loaf of bread or are you just being you're just being a community police that that's your answer. My answer is, don't say anything and I know how hard it is because trust me there's nobody who wants to shout at that woman buying all the bread like I do, but I've really not all the time but a lot of the time learned.

I don't need to police what is right and what's wrong because for all we know she's making lunches for the entire East Hampton elementary school and remember the teenager whose prom was canceled.

Alanis offer sympathy and an answer he's going to have a private be for him to get just as dressed up as they were she's going to ask her to his house just the way wrong. That is, of course. For some social distancing in mind pandemic are not Philip Alanis is in the end, an optimist he often sees people at their worst, believes in their best and thinks this current crisis is an opportunity.

This is the part that I'm waiting to see my notes coming because we lived through 9/11. This way, to remember when people started opening doors for each other and we started seeing each other in a community, there is that way of looking out for each other. I know it's coming week three of Jim Gaffigan's family in quarantine catch up her three weeks with five children, you know, children were with me where you can provide different experience. Joe, my sister Pam, is in quarantine in Indiana quarantine in Orlando siblings. My sister Kathy is wanting me with some photos of her and her boyfriend Joy as well, including your hostess who regrets recently. You know New York City's center.

There are more cases in New York City and anywhere else so my wife is considered high risk.

Years ago my wife removed from her brain success. Following which severely so here we are on the whole secret down warranty cooking and cleaning is taking work: my meeting time is still spring time, things to come. We should be possibilities springs in the future.

You know what I can hear birds and I see the leaves growing gives me whole legends of comedy and conversation this morning with our men in Hollywood Mankiewicz.

This is Mel's delicatessen Beverly Hills closed this week after serving showbiz folk like Mel Brooks and Carl writer 75 years, a few blocks away from where Mel Brooks hosts his weekly lunch that is suspended for now, millions of other meaningful social gatherings were millions of Americans.

It also means that if you want to talk to Mel Brooks and Carl writer. It's going to be a cyber check that's really too old friends got together to talk about World War II. The depression, the notion of sacrifice and of course to give each other the business bickering begin okay realize comedy routine from two best friends is is World War II so is we did it before your will is the milling Carl Joe has been closed since they met Stevie Job was in the 1950s will work with room: glass at first sight version Jewish hirer never forget those words. It is to set sail know what charting for sale dollars $0.37 now 98, Carl is still Mel straightened and Mel only 93, continues to be well well how are you coping. I was so way.

I have a greater digestion.

Do you showbiz is been good.

Both of their resumes or Hollywood comedy history by Joe Vaccaro. Please incentive Mel. I IMAX Brooks Max Brooks is Mel's son also historian the author of devolution is difficult for him not to see his friends of anybody needs to see friends. I Mel Brooks I think is probably no one in America right now that is more difficult to socially distance that my dad drives on crowds. He thrives on friends for him to have to hold behind glass is really hard on him right now, but he is doing what he has to do because he understands Americans of milling Carl generation, understand, struggle and sacrifice. They both grew up during the depression serve their country in World War II. Is there a message to give to other generations from you guys about this sense that we can get through this. We have done this before well written around. This is a breeze which is there the greatest generation's message to all of us is that in times of crisis. Everyone has a part. You cannot just live your life for you. You are part of a whole your part of the community and must do your part, of course, doing your part during a crisis is all relative.

Easier for some others. Welcome. Live long and prosper George to K Star Trek actor talking to us through a glass door at his home Japanese-American born in Los Angeles. His life changed months after Pearl Harbor when armed American soldiers came to the decay home and took the family away. I was five years old time we were seen as were put on a crowded train and transported two thirds the way across the country.

The swamps of Arkansas to a barbed wire internment Soldiers with machine guns pointed at us when you hear the Chinese virus. The Wuhan Waterloo just might look.

It is a threat to us Chinese-American women in the New York subway was yelled at and chased and assaulted and then in the San Francisco woman was yelled at and spat. It is so important to have wise leadership that knows history I did my social distance, but sending you all the good wishes of Star Trek milling Carl are watching that's George is thinking of classic movies being apart and staying together at a little advice to the country's leaders to persuade is your reason is how much you care about this. Well you started to sing that song to sing that song again all earlier, David Pogue looked at computer software now. The subject is recreational hardware with our Luke Burbank. It was just one short month that Logan Boutin was on the local TV news in Portland, Oregon celebrating the resurgence of pinball quarter world really wanted to make sure that there is places other than big arcades able to get your pinball vixen quarter world which Boutin manages has its own arcade and even rinse machines to bars and pizza shops around town. It's one of the reasons Portland has more pinball machines per capita than any other place in the country but of course last month feels like a long time ago on March 13 the quarter world arcade was shut down because of covert, 19 Logan had a layoff almost his entire staff. It was Reggie. I mean the arcade like that. That's your job. That's how you support yourself. Boutin made the decision the day before Oregon had its first report to death. The virus arcade in its essence is a very hands-on you're touching everything there is not enough Clorox in the world to be able to be like following someone around cleaning game so it we just had to pull the plug.

But then quarter world earned a bonus room right now trying Boutin and his staff had the idea to offer month-long home rentals of pinball and arcade game. I don't want to risk it. Meaning he was able to hire back at least some of his staff.

Unfortunately, there are businesses that are not going to survive this and I Mrs. doing everything in my power to make sure that everyone that we had to lay off has someplace to come back.

Each machine is cleaned and impacts at their warehouse which contains over 750 vintage games then there delivered to Portlanders hungry for a little home entertainment that doesn't involve a digital screen. One thing is in your household under the weather still Logan and his crew say their cognizant of the dangers that come with human contact people are opening their doors and letting us come into their safe zone and we want to make sure that they know that they are safer taken on the process to make sure that their safe but also making sure that my guys are safe. Boutin says now more than ever.

There's something therapeutic about the old-school nature of this game. I like to remind you of a happier time you either see or play these classic cabinets in arcade or in a far place or restaurant. He's an avid ballplayer self and sounds almost thin when he talks about the game know unlike a lot of classic arcade games. Yeah, that turtle that you get a jump on level II. He's always going to be. He's not going away.

But every game of asking comply with the spirit of the law on March 23 when Oregon governor Kate Brown ordered all nonessential businesses to close the world's team rushed to deliver their machines to customers stuck at home in case it would be their last chance.
