Covid-19 is the main issue that is being discussed all over the world. My read of the LA Times yesterday was one story about the virus - page after page. A daily accounting of the rapid and exponential daily increases of new cases, deaths, and sad stories about the lack of logistical equipment is depressing. HOWEVER, we should be aware that at the top of the pyramid of our leadership, the president still does not understand anything. We need to react quickly and with vigor to repel any notion that trump can cast aside the medical science and "open up the economy", thinking that the cure can't be worse than the problem. This is all that I have read this morning, and we can start with this. Silencing voices and opinions that he does not like is a danger:
|■ Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has been a frequent presence at White House briefings, where he has repeatedly contradicted Mr. Trump's assertions. Dr. Fauci did not attend Monday's briefing.|
Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose.
