It looks as if we're under lockdown for another 30 days, at least.
That's the galling part. They can't tell us, with all the science and the finest minds in the business, when this will be over.
I want to know when it will be over. I don't care when they set the date, whether it's in June, or July, or even August. I just want to know when I can start making plans. Americans are planners, and the worst of this disaster is shutting down the planning.
I spent twenty years in the Louisiana Dept of Corrections. The one thing that every inmate had is a release date. The inmate knew that on some certain date in the future, he would be released.
What we have now is a rolling release date. Maybe in 30 days, maybe in 60. What I'd like to see is a iron-clad date when we know, without a doubt, that we can return to some semblance of normal. Let the experts look at their most pessimistic models, then set a date based on that estimate.
Then, let us know that on that date, we can get on with our lives.
