    My life is so different now, though I suppose that all of our lives have dramatically changed this year. Weddings, funerals, births, graduations and even small things like going to the grocery store are nothing like they used to be, yet what seemed so surreal just a few short months ago has now become the reluctantly expected. I am so thankful in this new world that I had already planned to retire the first of this year.

  • Additional COVID funding has provided a perverse incentive
    Tuesday, August 11, 2020 8:37 AM
    My concern is that additional funding has provided a perverse incentive for these hospitals to attribute a patient’s death to COVID, even if it was not the ultimate cause. We are seeing instances where people are dying in car accidents or from heart attacks but happen to have COVID in their system at the time they pass away. Their deaths are being reported as COVID-related.

  • An unacceptable cost in lost liberty
    Monday, August 10, 2020 1:38 PM
    Politicians and bureaucrats cannot eliminate a virus any more than they can eliminate terrorism. What they can do is use terrorism, a virus and other real, exaggerated or manufactured crises to expand their power at the expense of our liberty.

    If governments strip away intellectual property protections, they will set an uncertainty-inducing precedent that will discourage the funding researchers need to explore other potential uses for today's discoveries. We would compromise our response to this pandemic – and the next one.

  • When it comes to the election, states should use common sense
    Monday, August 10, 2020 10:09 AM
    Absentee voting has become a popular choice this year since you can avoid crowded polling places. Normally, I vote in person at my polling location, but for this year’s primary election I actually voted absentee. South Dakota has a safe and secure absentee voting system in place, but this is not necessarily the case across the nation.

  • God visits in ways you least expect
    Sunday, August 9, 2020 11:46 AM
    After this harrowing experience, I drove home. I found out on the evening news the North Wing collapsed at 1:53 p.m. I remember getting my voice beep at 1:45 p.m. because I looked at my watch when it activated. I missed death by eight minutes.

  • Death has become political
    Sunday, August 9, 2020 11:21 AM
    It seems as though I remember when lung cancer deaths were around a half million a year, so education on smoking is obviously working. Funny, we don’t talk about these deaths anymore. Tuberculosis and death by automobile are other statistics that occasionally come into the national narrative, but not now. At the moment, it is not COVID-19, it is COVID-24/7.

  • Cabin fever has gotten to many of us
    Sunday, August 9, 2020 10:30 AM
    In many ways, my routine hasn’t changed all that much during this pandemic. I’ve been fortunate to be able to continue working, and have continued being a homebody. I’ve always shopped early. I was glad when I could finally get my hair cut. But in my mind, and probably in most people’s minds, things do take on subtle changes.
