It seems this COVID-19 is going to be here for a while. Some places are opening up with no problem.
Matt. 25:40 (NKJV) says, “And the king will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.’”
I wrote a column, which appeared in the May 15 edition of The Post-Intelligencer titled “Who is Justin Amash of the Libertarian Party and why is he running for president?” Hence, this may be the longest retraction ever.

When the murder of Ahmaud Arbery became national news, thanks to video footage of the crime as it was happening, guess who was not shocked or surprised at the way it was handled by local law enforcement officials?
If you are inclined to believe something, you are likely to find evidence that supports your inclination, and with this evidence you may try to persuade others.
Wash your hands before you touch your face, prepare food or eat, and wash after visiting the bathroom or touching anything that might be contaminated.
One thing I can say about the semi-quarantine inspired by the coronavirus is that it didn’t turn me into a panicky habitual toilet paper and food hoarder.
