This week brings realization that the pandemic will last longer and the recession will go deeper than most of us had hoped or imagined a month ago. It is like having both hands tied while working on anti-racism, engaging in a national election campaign and keeping businesses open and people employed. Illinois, unaccustomed to being at the top of any best performance list, has recently had good COVID numbers, compared to other states. The time calls for taking upticks seriously, and remaining patient and calm, while renewing commitment to the long haul.
