An international anchorman recently commentated that, in American culture, there is a tendency to wake up at the latest possible moment. I don’t think there much doubt that the United States was unprepared for the crisis in which it is currently mired. The federal government sat on its hands, waiting passively for the virus to come ashore, hoping against hope for the best without preparing for the worst. Let us hold accountable those at fault. Let us be objective as to who is right and who is wrong, and in the process, discard of partisan proclivities that cloud our judgments.
