It’s one of the sad truths of the human experience that you can’t count tears. Maybe the first few you might be able to, but then they just flow from your eyes, running down your cheeks until you can taste them on your lips, a flood of salty sorrow and pain and helplessness.

That is where we are: beyond counting, beyond being able to measure the tragedy and loss of COVID. Statistics can’t do it for us anymore. We’re reduced to comparisons, a doctor quoted in the New York Times on Thursday comparing 1,000 deaths a day to “two jumbo jets dropping from the sky.

If every day, two jumbo jets would drop from the sky and kill everybody, don’t you think that everybody would be in a panic?” asked Dr. Carlos del Rio, an infectious disease specialist at Emory University.

Well, no, doctor. Everybody is not in a panic, especially not our president, who with just over two months left in office played golf at his Virginia course last Saturday, a day that two jumbo jets dropped out of the sky with 1,007 dead of COVID, and Sunday, a day when only one jumbo jet dropped out of the sky with 464 dead.

Nearly 126,000 new cases were diagnosed on Saturday, and 103,416 more Americans came down with the disease as Trump piloted his presidential golf cart around the links the next day.

It’s an astounding fact that more than a million Americans have been diagnosed with the coronavirus since Trump lost to Joe Biden on Election Day. More than 10,000 have died.

And what is he doing in the White House? This week, he was busy firing the secretary of defense, Mark Esper, and installing two acolytes of the execrable Rep. Devin Nunes in important positions in our national security infrastructure. read more..
