Probably couldn't keep Spam in stock
It sold out in hours in HNL. Never would have imagined just how much Spam is sold in the Hawaiian Islands until we went to Costco. And that included 3 islands! Saw same in OGG and LIH.

That would be Honolulu, Oahu, Kahului, Maui, and Lihue, Kauai for those not familiar with the IATA codes.

..This pandemic is showing-up the horrible shortcomings of a Number of fallacies, from 'JIT' delivery, to 'Cities are Better models of Community' (than Rural areas / farms, etc, etc..)
I have been thinking exactly those two points.

Just wanted to define JIT delivery for everyone - it's "just in time" and had been touted as the pinnacle of efficiency so money need not be spent on storing goods. Most stuff is delivered in quantity sufficient to satisfy demand in "normal" times, but fails miserably, as we have seen, when people hoard.

General and business aviation is being shutdown. How is someone flying a plane away from the world some kind of hazard?
If they have the virus, then they would take it to wherever they land, and infect people at that location. Plus, anyone ELSE they come into contact with along the way.
