Lies, Damn Lies, and COVID-19 Speeches

There are so many claims as to what the future of the COVID-19 will be.

First off, as Doc Brown said in the final installment of Back to the Future, “The future hasn’t been written yet!” Nevertheless, various people are spouting things about the future with no idea as to their probability, much less future reality. For example:

  • The US economy will reopen on May 1.
  • There will be a vaccine by September.
  • When the weather changes, the virus will diminish–if not cease.

When you’ve lived as long as I have, you know that reality’s most frequent pitch is the curve ball. There is no harm in telling the truth–even if the truth is “I don’t know.”
