Second Quarter 2020
It is an election year in America in the 21st century. Given that Donald Trump is the incumbent, one might have predicted that things would get interesting. What would not have been predicted is that the election has nothing to do with why 2020 has already been one for the history books. Like virtually everything else in the lives of most Americans, politics took a temporary back seat as we grappled with the fallout from the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. When it comes to the virus news, if March was ‘bad’ and April was ‘worse,’ by July there are no accurate descriptors left, so we’re left with something akin to ‘weird.’ Parents of school-aged children, for example, may or may not be sending their kids to school this Fall, depending on where they live.
