On Saturday, we had 458 new cases of COVID-19 in Utah, a state of three million people. The same day, there were 374 new cases of COVID in Germany, a nation of 83 million people. It appears I would be, in orders of magnitude, safer in Germany than I am in Utah, the so-called “best managed state in the nation.” Where is all that amazing management now? Maybe, just maybe, we need new management.
