Our Concerns are not Their Concerns
We are definitely not all in this together. Old news, that. But it was never clearer to me than it has been the last few days as the Media, Print, Web, and TV are indulging themselves in oceans of SCOTUS coverage.
WE are interested in the COVID spread which spiked alarmingly to 54,874 (per NY Times) new cases in one day. Up from many weeks of 30,000-40,000 new cases per day.
WE want to know when we can go back to work and earn enough money to take care of ourselves and our families.
WE want to know when our children and grandchildren can resume not only going to classes with other kids, but again participate in all the activities and experiences that a COVID free universe afforded them. How damaged-for-life is this disruption likely to be for our children?
WE want to know if/when we can see a doctor without it leading to bankruptcy.
So, OK, Media---you prattle on about the Participation Theater Events of the day. As out-of-touch as you are, surely there are some of you who get that the Democratic Party has neither the will nor the ability to do a damn thing for anybody but themselves. Mitch and Don will have their Judge. I'm ignoring the entire SCOTUS Pageant as it unfolds.
My personal participation in this election will be to Vote Early and to work with some of my neighbors in collecting ballots from the shut-ins who live in our building and delivering their Absentee ballots to drop boxes or the polls during early Voting and Election Day.
