    +1 Most freight companies run on super-tight margins. I recall something along the lines of every $0.10 diesel fuel goes up in price will take out ~ 6% of the trucking companies.

    Several months ago I read predictions that 1/3 of the restaurants in Michigan won't reopen, but I have read about any specifically yet. I did read about a small music store closing permanently after 11 years. He was pretty mad about music stores being declared non-essential in Michigan, and thus forced to remain closed. Still no hair cuts in Michigan; my hair is longer than it has been in years. My wife said she would cut it, I might take her up on that.

    So sad to see some Companies tanking. But as stated some were just hanging on by a thread. And the mom & pop restaurants and small business also taking the hits. On the other hand some will come out much stronger. Very glad that I don`t live in Michigan.
