You probably noticed a lot of coronavirus content today. Sorry about that. There wasn’t a whole lot else to share. Pretty much everyone and everything was focused on that singular topic.
Next week I’ll be doing a Dear Mark. Do you have any questions related to the coronavirus? I’m quite limited in what I can answer with any amount of expertise, but I can certainly offer my perspective.
“The coronavirus article seems an impressive case of willful ignorance for a man with PhD after his name. Experts have been at pains to emphasize the imperative to slow the spread because it will rapidly and completely overwhelm our medical system. Basically, very ill people will go essentially untreated, the virus will rage throughout our hospitals, which are full of especially vulnerable people, and countless senior living facilities of all kinds will become scenes of shocking carnage, at least by standards moderns are accustom to. I think a reasonable people can conclude this is a scenario worth trying to head off.”
