They had one job. To ward off disease. And they were fucking around with video games and diversity bullshit. First, Glenn Reynolds:

We’re not very good at preparing for things that happen every hundred years. The last comparable event was in 1918. So we pay people to prepare … nobody has a fire brigade ready to go for something that happens less than once in a lifetime.

Reply from a friend of Glenn Reynolds:

Agreed re fire brigade and once in a lifetime.

Though in fairness, when it comes to beating up the health authorities, we’ve become more sophisticated in the last 100 years — or thought we had.

It wasn’t like we didn’t have warnings. It isn’t like they weren’t wasting resources on nonsense and ignoring timely advice to restock essential supplies.

So fuck them, for failing to be prepared.

Six figure salaries. And they played fuck-around

Excuse me. I meant to say, six figure salaries and fat pensions. And they played fuck around. And after this is over, they’ll go back to fuck around.

Yup.

People are starting to ask the question, if only on blogs so far: why didn’t our inept rulers just close the borders earlier and prevent all this health/economic mess? Foreseeable and foreseen.
