A tiny 'bug' has turned the world upside down

Not sure which was more sobering last week, watching the nation's restaurants and stores shut down as confirmed virus cases spiraled upward and medical folks tried to cope, watching our governments' inept responses to the crisis or reading an article that called the coronavirus a media extinction event.
