Everywhere we turn, the media is talking about it.
Current events are Extremely Serious, but remember, the media always tries to make things even more extreme.

Today was finally a nice (enough) spring day in MN for a test RIP in the Supercharged C5. Man I needed that. If you have not done so lately, take your C5, Mustang, Truck, Wheelchair, Bike, Dog.... for a spin. It will clear you mind for a moment or two....

Hang in there everyone - as many important people have said through the years - "This too shall pass."

I did it Friday and it's on the schedule for Wednesday again since it will be warm enough.

An hour of sunroof open, tunes cranked and back country roads along the lake shore.

Sounds like a great message and good times, but I bailed immediately at Roosevelt. BTW, the only reason I'm not keeping my normal travel routine is the place I go are locking down. *sigh*

I might have bailed also, except that a few years back I was in DC and got a chance to go through the various memorials there. One was the FDR memorial. I had always had the impression that FDR was some kind of radical socialist, left wing nut case. And he did certainly do some things that were not my idea of the way to do things. I even subscribe to the notion that many of the things FDR did to get us out of the Depression actually hurt the country and extended the depression.

However, when you go through the memorial for him, you see the comments he made over his life time in politics. And they did not correspond with my impressions and my beliefs about where he was politically. He may have done a lot of things wrong, but he was no communist or socialist. At least not if you judge him by his quotations.

And the particular quote used "We have nothing to fear, but fear itself." Is great and is a very thoughtful way to approach our current crisis. Our fears can rule us, or we can look at things objectively and react accordingly. We can get through this. And we will get through this. We need to turn away from those who would use that fear to their own political ends. Let us as a country stand together in fighting this virus and those who would use it against us.

And thank you for the video.

Thank you for the response!

Truth be told, I lean right but those words are ones we all have heard before and were in the desperate times of the great depression. We are all soo much better off today and yet we are in a time where people are afraid more than they have been in decades - and we should be concerned. Great words. Not a political statement whatsoever.
