Surviving C-19

181 Days since first US infection

It is unending, tedious and depressing, but I am not the POTUS.  I do not stick my head in the sand and pretend everything is going to be fine.  I know better, that global curve has never bent in the slightest all this time.  It continues to bend up, up and up. A virus does not care about borders, about politics, or about anyone’s political fortunes.  It simply seeks a new host to wreck and moves on.

Too bad Trump couldn’t follow that model, see his destruction, and move on.
