    Been a long time subscriber since your print days. Still have them all on my bookshelf. When the world gets a little crazy (did someone say COVID?) I pull an issue at random and feel a little better as a result.

    Gallows humor and not appropriate at all at this time in this context.
    To my knowledge Humans now live longer and better than they/we have ever done,
    We are truely blessed,vaccines have prevented so much early death as has proper sanitation and abundant energy.
    Nasty crap we use to see in ER’s has mostly gone away,patients are older,sicker than before in many ways. MI/stroke has decreased or now occurs at older ages.treatment for many things ,infections high blood pressure,rheumatic diseases all have gotten better,less disability. We live longer,with better health..
    This is a blip in the road and we shall have a nice vaccine and the anti vaccine people will twaddle their poison. Is every vaccine safe 100% of time under all circumstances…. No nothing is. But better now than ever before. Please give thanks to God,the force or Universe for the scientific method, the skills knowledge and dumb blind luck of those who have gone before to find answers . I pray we do as well..

      I think off-color and gallows humor is always appropriate, especially in trying times.
