Editorial

I am stunned that so many people are surprised at the recent surge of COVID-19 around the country.  And outraged that wishful thinking, politics, and an absolute absence of common sense is causing so many people to get sick and die.  COVID-19 is not just an annoying cold that is miserable and inconvenient for a week or so and then goes away.  People don't die from colds.

So when a killer virus is unleashed on the world and there is no known cure or inoculation, what do you do?  Isolate, take precautions when you do have to go out, monitor your health?  Or go where there are lots of other people and act as if life were the way it was pre-COVID?  Hint: it's not a trick question.
