The Coronavirus is nothing to sneeze at. (Never end a sentence with a preposition). Political leaders are so-called leaders because they tell us what to do, while showing us something totally different.
Watch and listen as some leaders tell us what to do, while showing us how it works:
Locally, Naperville councilwoman Patty Gustin is showing very little respect for the virus, along with her own well-being. Watch Gustin’s fascination with her face as she touches it no less than 14 times over a two-minute period, for a total of 90% of the time during the two-minute segment.
It might be time for Gustin’s family, friends, and supporters to initiate an intervention with suggestions for her own well-being including:
- Talk less
- Velcro her hands to the dais
- Stay home
- Move to adjourn the meeting immediately after the pledge
Not only would it benefit Gustin, it would also benefit others sitting near her, and those who have to listen to her.
