What will it take before we act?

Sometime in the week of May 17, the 100,00th person will die of Covid-19 in the United States. It's said that you can put a frog into a pot, and if you turn up the heat slowly enough, the frog won't react, instead boiling to death.

Are we not smarter than frogs, who by the way will jump out of the pot? How many "we're doing a beautiful job" statements by the Liar in Chief do we have to listen to before we as a country react? What will it take before people go from fear to resignation to anger and rage and demand real action? 200 thousand deaths? 300 thousand deaths?

If you live in Vermont, Wyoming, Hawaii, Montana, Alaska, Oregon, Maine, New Hampshire and Guam, relax. no one died of Covid-19 in your state in the past 24 hours. You've got nothing to worry about! Yesterday.

But if you live anywhere else in the U.S., you didn't dodge yesterday's bullet. Good luck with tomorrow's.
