New Normal

[President Trump] wants to reopen the country.  It's essential to our economic health, it's true.  But the president refuses to concede there's a testing problem, and absent testing, it may be hard to get many people to go back outside.  Before, no one wanted to be the only chump to avoid crowds; now many will be reluctant to be the chump who rushes toward them.  Because that's the new normal.
