Julia Brown / Mountain View Voice included a photo of empty shelves in a Target store back when the COVID -19 panic started. Could this all be part of the unintended consequences of the course of action taken? How severely is the mental health of our nation being impacted?

We need an accounting of who knew what, and when did they know it.
Experts depend on super-computers. What did they feed them, what questions did they ask, what did the computers tell them?

Gee, Hickey -- really? Really?

Just so everyone knows: Using the term "COVID-19 panic" puts you in the company of people who believe in things that are nowhere near rational.

Let that be known.

Accountings are a good thing, Mr. Hickey.

Just curious, did you read the recent senate accounting of Russian interference in the 2016 election?

The House's report?

The Mueller report?

Those are factual reports on arguably the most important issue to our democracy. Then you can move on to some consiracy theory about Target and Covd.

You don't even need a "supercomputer". You can use your phone or tablet.

Or a newspaper.
