So if the COVID economy lingers in its varied forms once the threat diminishes
and the kids stay home next Fall because they did fairly well there this Spring
and the employees who were not so productive were not recalled to their former positions
and libraries were reopened once the lower functioning ones were privatized by Netflix
and dentists and vets demonstrated suitable skill in appendectomies and colonoscopies
and the Dems lost the House, Senate, and White House to the Trumpists
and the Dow Jones returns to where it left off
Well, we’d have a NEW normal, wouldn’t we?
And why would anyone complain about something SO normal?
Four days from now sensible voters will refute the notion that Orange is the New Normal.
