“The economy will bounce back, dead people will not.”
New York City physician, Dr. Lipuma Roy
COVID-19 cases and deaths continue to rise in the United States, but Donald Trump is eager to get the U.S. economy going again so as to bolster his chances for reelection in November. He wants to open up America for business as early as May 1st and seems to have little regard, much less empathy, for the human toll of this pandemic, which is why Dr. Roy’s words above resonate with me.
And that brings me to my second one-liner of the day, this one from former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown.
“I’d rather be six feet apart than six feet under.”
