Hell To Pay... For Decades

It’s been the most astonishing two weeks for American public life. The best way I can describe this is by observation.

In the Northeast of the U.S., and in many other parts of the country, everywhere you go right now, you see sick people milling around.

After two years of work to control the spread, after brutal shutdowns of the whole country — shutdowns that happened two years too early, as judged by actual case trends! — COVID is here.

Not just here. It is everywhere.

The case counts are beyond anything anyone on the planet could have imagined a year or two ago. The spikes make everything that came before look like child’s play.
