The Rub

if you are above a certain age and you are in a hospital suffering from coronavirus and there is a younger person in the same hospital with the same illness and there is a shortage of ventilators ….. you are not going to get one….. even if you have a chance at survival, you are not going to get a ventilator if you are above a certain age and there is a shortage of ventilators ….. That is the scene that may soon come to a neighborhood near you … or perhaps your own neighborhood.

What do you think of them apples?

    Best wishes, Pete.
