Hi Dana. I’ve been linking to your articles on other pieces. I am about to go mad from the stupidity. I’m a 67 yo athlete, but those things in an of themselves are meaningless if I don’t take the basic precautions. I get outside a lot and exercise tons, but again, those things are meaningless if I don’t take precautions. I could go on. I am exhausted by the insistence on magical thinking.

It is highly indicative of our mindset these days that we cannot accept the simplest instructions as being the best. We end up making ourselves anxious over nothing, stressing ourselves unnecessarily, and undermining our immune systems even more.
