I blame the press. They like pressing us to fear everything.

I think this video speaks to my current frustration.

Look, I’m taking the precautions. I wore my mask as the governor of Connecticut demands of me when I went to get my medication today and when I saw the doctor earlier this week on unrelated stuff, do the social distancing, and while I’m not washing my hands every 5 seconds until I can see the bones I am keeping clean. Speaking of which a friend of mine went to see the doctor recently and he apparently was getting flack from someone over it, as if every doctor on planet Earth should only be working on this pandemic even if it isn’t his or her area of expertise. Yes, even the dentist if you listen to these people. All I can tell you right now is…

DON’T PANIC!!!!!!!!

This is not the worst disease in the history of mankind. I’m not even sure it’s the worst in the 21st century but I haven’t run the numbers on the other pandemics we’ve had the past 20 years. You know, the ones we didn’t shut ourselves away from like some sci-fi dystopia. Parts of Florida are beginning phase 1 of the new reopening protocols because they’re doing well enough despite some people still being sick. The other viruses we had pandemic warnings for with less severe penalties are still around but we know how to treat them. This too shall pass and become yet another illness in the world. Push back against the abuses and do not become a hypocondriac but do follow the guidelines to stay safe until this is under control where you are. I’ve lived in fear during my bully victim years, and I refuse to go through that again! I will do what I need to stay safe and encourage others but I will not surrender what little life I have left to some bug. God made me better than that.

Meanwhile my main computer is down. Again. I’m doing this from the XP artputer so I could upload today’s comic but the images I need for my other reviews are on the other computer and if I can’t sort this out I may end up losing them. I’m hoping it won’t come to that but it means I’m forced to take a shorter (please) break again. My first article coming back (besides a Daily Video I already scheduled for Monday) will be the next Chapter By Chapter review of Spider-Man: Carnage In New York; I just don’t know what day that will be. From there I’ll see what comics I can review before the week is out, which means I’m interrupting Iron Man again in the same storyline. Have a good week and stay safe people. And again…DON’T PANIC! God bless you all and keep you and your loved ones safe.
