God has a sense of humor. He must have read my piece from yesterday (i.e., Mainstream Media Losing Their Minds Over Florida) and contacted the publisher of the Sarasota Herald Tribune. Today’s SHT headlines underscores the New York Time’s status as a disgrace–i.e., not worthy to be used to cover the bottom of a bird cage inhabited by a feathered friend suffering from Montezuma’s revenge. Their latest attempt to savage Governor Ron DeSantis and the state of Florida for a supposedly inept response to Covid is laughable in light of this headline from today’s Sarasota Herald Tribune: No COVID-19 deaths reported in Sarasota County since March 10. How do you like them apples? No deaths from Covid in 6 days!
I want to remind you how important a benchmark Sarasota is within the Covid realm. It is a major tourist destination and, since November, has seen the annual flood of “snowbirds” from the northern states and Canada. That fact alone should have created a “Superspreader” event, but it did not. The number of infections have dropped along with the number of fatalities attributed to Covid.
“No deaths” sure does not fit the meme of a rampaging pandemic that is wiping out the American people, or the world for that matter. And this fact highlights the absurdity of the massive lock-downs that eviscerated large segments of the United States economy, denied people treatment for other diseases, such as cancer, and a surge in suicides and drug overdose.
