(The following is an email I just sent to Karen)
I posted your poem today and you already have a like. You make a valid point. Here is another valid point.
The above link is about the cost of lockdowns. As well as the cost of NOT locking down.
We could stop thousands of deaths in automobiles if we locked down all cars (i.e. banned cars). But there would be a cost to saving those lives. Since the early 1900’s we the American people have been willing to trade those lives for the benefits of cars. That is not a pretty statement. But you have accepted it as well as I have. (Unless you have been lobbying to ban cars). I respect your fear of being harmed by Covid. I also respect your choice to benefit from cars.
I am going to publish this letter next to your poem. I wanted to let you know first.
