Corona Thoughts

People in an industry I don’t really trust tell me that people in a country I don’t fully trust are reporting to a global organization I completely don’t trust a story that I’m supposed to take very seriously.

I have already seen politicians I don’t trust explain that science I don’t trust offers a political solution I don’t trust to prevent the next one.  I give it better than even odds that an industry I don’t trust has a means of protecting me from this latest and greatest threat to all humanity.

Now, I’m not saying that the Corona Virus isn’t a problem here, but if it is a problem, then it’s a safe bet that all of the people who are responsible for teaching me not to trust any of the entities mentioned above will bear a much greater burden for my lackadaisical response in the face of the Horseman of pestilence.  They are a child crying wolf for the tenth time.  I’m rolling over and going back to sleep, and if half the village gets eaten…well, I’ve spent enough nights falling for his tricks.  At least this time I’ll save myself a few wrinkles and live a more peaceful life.

 

 

About Jon Mollison

Jon Mollison was weaned at the literary knee of Tolkein, Howard, Moore, and Burroughs. He spent decades wandering in the wilderness of modern genre fiction, wondering when the magic and wonder went out of the world of dragons and space ships. In his darkest hour, he encountered a wise man who handed him the open secrets to crafting works that emulate the stories of the great authors who built the genre. They are easily summarized in but two words: Regress Harder. Now one of the twelve champions of the Pulp Revolution, his self-published works represent a more direct lineage to the tales of action, mystery, romance, virtue, and pure unalloyed adventure than the bland imitations churned out by New York City publishing houses in recent decades.
