I could not agree more. And I had thought it was just pure incompetence
that caused the US to start widespread testing much later than every other
advanced technological nation in the world and even later than many third
world countries, but there may be more to it than just that. Yesterday
Trump said:

*"In a way by doing all this testing we make our country look bad. We're
going to have more cases."*

So if you don't know about a danger it can't hurt you. Talk about
anti-science! The problem is you just can't hide from reality, eventually
it will always find you and bite you in the ass. And you will never find a
bigger ass than Donald Trump, but Douglas Adams Hitchhiker's Guide to the
Galaxy gave me an idea for the perfect Christmas gift for the man:

"*Joo Janta 200 Super-Chromatic Peril Sensitive Sunglasses have been
specially designed to help people develop a relaxed attitude to danger. At
the first hint of trouble, they turn totally black and thus prevent you
from seeing anything that might alarm you.*”
