A special message and appeal to any who may read this or who has followed my blog:
I began this blog on March 9. Since then, I have made 130 posts, received 20,898 views, 75 likes and 21 comments. I am now very much uncertain about whether to continue this effort. I have tried to bring all my knowledge, experience and skill to bear to make sense of what is happening. I have sought to gather information thoughtfully and critically, to analyze that information responsibly and report the truth as accurately and clearly as I could. I have been proud of this effort. Now, as the the nation seems to be sinking further into confusion, apathy and denial, I worry that my voice is contributing to the collective malaise that seems to be deepening. I am concerned that I have become part of the drone of “experts” counting cases and deaths, expressing alarm and forecasting continued suffering. Is it helping? I am still fascinated by what is transpiring, but I no longer feel that what I am doing is making a difference in a positive way. I get very little feedback and I have no idea whether anyone is still interested.
For these reasons, I am asking you for your input and feedback. Any and all comments would be welcome. Send me a comment through the site or at my personal email (email@example.com). Please be safe and well.
