I wish I’d been wrong, but I expressed unease early on, when the virus numbers began rising in China. I figured that the fractured nature of the United States, and much of the world, would allow it to spread - a virus really needing little more than ignorance, stupidity, and failure to react, for it to thrive.

Meanwhile, to a safe passage for all.
