Well for starters, as a result of this “pandemic” (and I use that term VERY LOOSELY), I work from home. That is one of the big benefits of the “pandemic”.
I will also say that the government response to the C19 pandemic made me more aware of goverment overreach. As in, do governors have the right to unilaterally declare emergency situations without the advice of the legislature? There were a lot of violations of this principle 3 years ago.
Let’s not go into the folly of the vaccine response.
