Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, July 11, 2020

Dr. [Lorna] Breen worked at NewYork-Presbyterian Allen Hospital in Upper Manhattan, where she supervised the emergency department. The unit had become a brutal battleground, with supplies depleting at a distressing rate and doctors and nurses falling ill. The waiting room was perpetually overcrowded. The sick were dying unnoticed.

Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem, especially for someone as young as her. Other mental issues perhaps....?

Lots of assumptions perhaps?

You've probably never walked close to a mile in her shoes, so our judgement is meaningless.

It is harder right now to be a Doctor in America than at any point since 1918.

In fact it was better during the spanish flu since at least then the president wasn't helping the epedemic.

The brain can only take so much stress before it takes some action to protect itself.

I know I couldn't handle what doctors (and nurses) go through every day.

I live near st.louis. I am appalled how few wear masks. This will continue to get worse.

I've been providing emotional support to an old friend who's husband works at a hospital.

I hope it helps her keep her husband sane.

This is the type of collateral damage which occurs when politicians begin calling healthcare workers "heroes," without any semblance of further material support.

Expect similar wordplay from pols and result(s) on the ground in the fall when teachers enter into the Covid arena.

"politicians begin calling healthcare workers "heroes,"

Truth is, health care workers are the last responders.
We, and our decision to wear a mask or not, and to socially distance or not, are the first responders.

Be a hero.
You'll likely never have this big an impact on other people's lives.

You think All Lives Matter? Then act like it.
