We've seen these crooks before.

Watching an old 1931 movie about bootleggers, gangs, mobsters and crooked politicians. Know what it reminds of -- the 2021 Republican Party.

Things are starting to get ugly.

Panic is beginning to bubble up. Time to take a deep breath and put a plan in place -- probably several plans.

We need to recognize several truths:
1) The world (which by definition includes us) will be fighting this virus until a vaccine is developed, produced and distributed. According to scientists this will be 12 to 18 months. We're talking about September, 2021!
2) The world (including us) cannot function that long on lock-down.
3) We need to find a way to function while fighting the virus.
The only way to do this is identify those of us who have survived Covid-19 and developed anti-bodies.

About BarbD

The first President I voted for was John F. Kennedy back in the days when you had to be 21 to vote. When I was first married, having babies and living in Connecticut, I got involved in the League of Women Voters. Have been trying to get out the vote ever since.
