Life in the Coronaverse: Day 26

Mass graves are being filled with the unclaimed or poverty stricken dead in New York. That’s where we are now. Hart Island (off the Bronx coast) has been used this way for a long time, but never on this level.

The virus is tearing through group homes for folk with special needs, the ones I work with.  Both the residents and the staff are in the ICU or dead. They’re now very short staffed. So if you’re unemployed and not worried about the virus, there are options for you.




Life in the Coronaverse: Day 21

I noticed that these posts are sounding more hopeless.  Unfortunately, that’s what it feels like in New York (and New Jersey) now. We realized that help is not coming from the federal government, at least not the Republicans,  who shoot down every plea.  They have no misgivings about letting us die. I would wish them all to suffer, but I can’t.  No one should die alone, slowly drowning, not even with a chance to get on a ventilator, because there are none left. Even those that kill us with apathy should die in such a horrid way.

I’d rather history marks them for the monsters they are.

This entry has a lot about Jewishness in it, as I had to deal with hate speech on my Facebook page yesterday. Sadly, it was from another Jew.
