(I add my credentials to these COVID-19 blog posts in case they get shared. I want readers to know that my opinion is supposedly an educated and informed one)
Now, this is a topic that I thought had been covered well over the last few months. I know I’ve talked and written about it a few times. And yet journalists still ask me about it.

My intent is to make this will be a short post. Let’s see if I have the discipline to hold to that promise.
