You might have noticed that I haven't written much about the pandemic in the last year.  I view the blog as a diversion, for me to write, and for you to read.  Today is an exception.

As the first anniversary passes, I'm reminded of something that happened as this thing started rolling.  The first cases started appearing in New York.  I wrote a story for our weekend morning news broadcasts that included the line "The coronavirus is closer than you think."  A viewer ripped me on social media for being overly dramatic.

How did that work out for you?

I wish I kept it, and I hope that person made it through the year happy and healthy.  The same goes for friends and relatives.
