“Gun control is the idea that it’s better to see a woman dead in an alley, strangled
with her own pantyhose, than to see her with a gun in her hand.”—T.D. Melrose

The Coronavirus: A Conspiracy against the New World Order?
by Sean Gabb
I have no particular knowledge of medicine or the natural sciences. However, I remember the Aids panic of the 1980s, when we were told there would be two million deaths by 1990 in this country alone. I remember the Mad Cow Disease of 1996, when we were told that a million people would turn into zombies by 2016. There have been a dozen lesser panics the details of which I presently forget. The Coronavirus may be a modern equivalent of the Spanish Flu of 1918-19. But I have reason to be sceptical. Indeed, if ignorant of medicine in any practical sense, I do know a lot about the bubonic plague pandemics of 542-4 and of 1347-51. These exploded among populations severely weakened by hunger, following downturns in global temperature. The Spanish Flu took hold because of the dislocations produced by the Great War. The human race now has never been so well-fed and so well-provided with medicine. It seems that most victims of the Coronavirus were very old or already in poor health. I do not, of course, welcome any death. But I shall need to see much higher rates of infection and many more deaths—and much and many more outside those groups presently most at risk—before I regard this as other than some collective madness.

Seven Days in March
by Sarah A. Hoyt
I do not claim to have a crystal ball. I can create plausible enough future worlds to write about, though to be fair I’m not trying to make them correct, I’m trying to make them interesting, which is why sometimes miracles are invoked and dressed in the robes of science. Because it makes it more interesting to read about and my job is to entertain, not to forecast.

The Chinese Bug
by T.J. Mason
The United States, and the world, are at a crossroads, brought down by a virus spread from China, called variously the Novel Coronavirus, COVID-19, the China Virus, the Wuhan Virus, the China Flu, and the Wuhan Flu or Wu-Flu (though it's not an influenza). The novel aspect of this virus is its emergence in human populations, which thus have no intrinsic resistance. This Chinese bug has yielded an estimated death rate of 2-4%, and is particularly devastating to the elderly and anyone over 50 with pre-existing conditions including heart disease, circulatory disease, diabetes, and respiratory disease. While the contagion has supposedly been brought under control in China (at horrid cost), it is devastating regions of Italy and has a firm foothold in the United States, particularly Seattle and New York City. This essay offers some reflections, symptoms and severity, some statistics, and some recommendations.

Cycles of History
by Jim Davidson
"Would you please pass the pork?" asked Tyrone at supper.  Eleven people were seated around a large dining table.   To his left were Pete Williams, Clementine Watson, Bill Watson, Mary Sue Watson, and at the far end Bob Nolan.  Next to Bob was his son Little Bob, Sam Smith, then Bob's daughters Amy and Kathy, and finally Susan Nolan was to Tyrone's immediate right.

Getting High for Freedom
by Jim Davidson
"Doctor Perez," Tyrone said to the screen, "would you please go over what we should expect tonight?" Juan Perez was a sixth generation Texan.  His family had settled in Texas before it was annexed to the United States.   No one in his immediate family spoke Spanish, which he was quick to mention if the subject came up.  He had PhDs in nuclear engineering and astrophysics and was widely regarded as one of the smartest people in the rebel alliance.

The Coronavirus Chronicles: Coming of the Coronavirus
by Jeff Fullerton
What a day yesterday and what a week. I’ll pick up where I left off yesterday decluttering and sanitizing my kitchen. Got into cutting the milk containers up to make strips for filter media for ponds and rid them from my space and then sweeping the floor. Ran out of time doing that and barely had time for just a peek at the Florida Room to make sure all is well and I had to be off. Good thing I had loaded up the furnace earlier. I remembered oil and called to order some for delivery next Friday.
