While so much of the news, including in this newspaper, has needed to focus on coronavirus, there is still plenty to celebrate.
It has been a strange and difficult couple of weeks as normal life was upended over a virus.
The novel coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak is testing people even as people get tested for the virus.

Restaurants and bars now can't serve people inside; gyms are closed. Some people will be out of work.

Seems to me he tried at one time to make the whole earth look like aisle six and aisle four of this same chain store. When it came to a new one near his land in Taos, he was moved to speak. And, no one threw a shoe.
Ominously, these two have much in common. Hitler came to power in Germany in the 1930s and led his nation into World War II, which caused the deaths of millions of military personnel and civilians. …
