Another milestone, 4418 Americans died in the Iraq War and as of today at 17
:34 GMT 4,516 Americans have died from COVID-19. The US had its first death
from COVID-19 on March 1, so in one month it has managed to kill more
Americans than the Iraq war has in two decades, and it has almost certainly
destroyed more wealth too. I'm old enough to have been alive during the
administration of Lyndon Johnson and at the time I was certain he would be
the worst president in my lifetime, but one can be absolutely positively
100% certain of something and still be dead wrong, and a few years later
George W Bush came along and showed me that I was indeed dead wrong. And
now I've been proven to be wrong yet again. I guess there is just no bottom
to bad.
