Massachusetts schools closed

The day after (today) I asked my younger son, Ives, whether schools were now closed in Massachusetts and he said he didn't know, the governor closed schools for the remainder of the school year.

Such is the epidemic. The disruption has got to be enormous.

I wonder if some good-hearted millennial will start a gofundme page that invites donations to quarantine U.S. President Donald Trump. Buy him a Pacific island somewhere, put him in a mirrored telephone booth where he will always have an appreciative audience, but just get him out of the way. His ineptitude and lies are confusing things ... let's just try to put him in a bubble and send him out to sea.

Funds not used for the proposed goal can be earmarked for some worthy cause. His appearance at the six o'clock news conference is an embarrassment. His self-serving comments, bereft of any sympathy, do nothing to advance the spread of hard-core news.

Let's just quarantine him.

  1. I prefer he be stripped of his citizenship and permanently exiled. Purely as a matter of proportionality; nothing personal.
