“THERE IS NO JOY IN MUDVILLE, MIGHTY CASEY HAS STRUCK OUT”

Today’s editorial on our society comes in the form of an analogy.  A re-read, for most of us, of the historic poem, “Casey at the Bat” by Ernest Lawrence Thayer, is a great example of egotism and arrogance undoing the hard work of the common man.  It immediately brings to mind the sacrifices that the majority of America made in March, April and May to stem the tide of the COVID pandemic.  Unfortunately, those sacrifices have been for naught.  With beaches and bars beckoning to a pent up demand for human interaction, millions of young Americans threw caution to the wind, ignored safety protocols, and generally acted as if COVID did not exist.  Now, as a result of that egotism and arrogance, we are all, once again, paying the price of a quickly contracting economy.  Only time will tell if, when the economy opens again, we are able to show the humility and patience to “draw walks, and advance runners”.  Or, if like Casey, we will once again swing for the fences, and strike out trying.  If so, there will, once again, be no joy in Mudville.
