Waiting on a Vaccine

[NOTE:  This column was first published in the Sarasota Herald – Tribune.  I write a bi-weekly column in the paper and of course bring my general thinking to the readers with a focus on the three counties the paper serves on the Gulf Coast of Florida.  These three counties have around 1 million residents.  This […]
