The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly - 4/28/20

The ongoing saga… 

The Great – Despite the diminished respect for experts (see below), Anthony Fauci, MD has turned into a national media hero. Keep it up Dr. Fauci! We need people with backbone in government!!

The Good – Despite all the downside of the pandemic, the upside is the quality of family time which has turned positive. We’re actually having regular dinners with our son and each other. Plus, the dinners have become a competition of sorts. Our time together has become a positive couple of hours every evening despite the news of the day. We might even try to continue this phenomenon which we retrieved from the 1950s – before the onset of the television era… 

The Bad – The decision by the Governor of Georgia to open up the state despite the advice against it by nearly every health care expert. But, then again, this is the era of diminished respect for expert opinion. We’ll have to keep an eye on the results…

The Ugly – Clorox tablets, Lysol gargle, and all of the other approaches proposed for internal cleansing. Can you actually believe we’re having this discussion? 

The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly - 4/17/20

The ongoing saga…

The Great – The dedication of our nation’s health care workers despite abandonment!

The Good – The micro-bonding that is occurs in communities across the nation between friends and neighbors – old and new. 

The Bad – The number of deaths that have occurred due to Covid-19 and the poor response of the government in responding to the crisis and the disregard for the early warning signs on the impending pandemic.

The Ugly – The sequelae we only now beginning to uncover among those who have been infected by the Covid-19 virus.

The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly - 3/23/20

The ongoing saga… 

The Great – “Physical distancing” has become the norm in the last week – as it should!

The Good – The health care community reaching across boundaries – boundaries of professions, boundaries of organizations, boundaries of resources, boundaries of philosophy – in an effort to solve problems and focus on the crisis at hand. 

The Bad – The lack of sheltering in place and for those who are sheltering in place the cloud of anxiety that continues to layer over our sanctuaries as we ponder the potential outcomes of Covid-19.

The Ugly – It now appears that this is the worst pandemic the world has faced since the Flu of 1918. There are so many details that are missing but it’s clear – we have a problem.

The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly - 3/16/20

The ongoing saga…

 The Great – Doing the Five Things to Prevent Covid-19.  They are easy to do!!!

The Good – The bipartisan decision to allocate national resources in support of managing the Covid-19 pandemic outbreak. Finally, something we can agree upon… 

The Bad – The dismantling of the Pandemic Response Team in our national security apparatus.  Let the lesson be learned.  We give our resources to our government to think ahead.

The Ugly – The outbreak of toilet paper fights at Walmart, CVS, our local groceries and the price gouging being promulgated by entrepreneurial TP Mavens…

The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly - 3/12/20

The Great – Hmmm…let me think about that for a while…

The Good – The bipartisan decision to put forward national resources in support of managing the Covid-19 pandemic outbreak

The Bad – The lack of testing capability in the USA for coronavirus! Enough said…

The Ugly – Incoherent and inconsistent messaging from The White House at a time where such approaches are mandatory.
