In These United States

McDonalds and Starbucks, along with other fast-food restaurants, may reopen for business soon, if they have not already done so.

All other restaurants, movie theaters, Broadway and off Broadway theaters, small and mid-size venues for music, dance and dramatic productions, most retail shops, ball games, spectator sports including horse racing, air travel and buses, both long distance and commuter hops, Amtrak and commuter subway lines will not be reopening any time soon. Life will be different in these United States.

People are working from home if their job permits. School has been suspended for the remainder of this year. There is a lockdown in place throughout the United States along with most of the rest of the world. In some countries it’s mandatory. In other places guidelines are more lax.

The length of the delay between action and reward is a measure of intelligence. Our President has the attention span of a gnat. Many Trumpists will not be able to contain themselves or be contained for very long.
