Social Distancing Saves Lives

My name is Tim Farrell. Some of you know me as a candidate for Pierce County Council; today I want to talk to you just as Tim. I know that many people feel they won’t be affected by the coronavirus that’s currently ravaging this nation. They want to get back to work, stop the isolation, and return to a normal life. I want to let you know, from personal experience, why that’s a bad idea.

Thanks, Paul

During my initial run for county council, I had the pleasure of meeting retired TNT editor Paul O. Anderson. Paul served in the Navy during WWII and mentioned he had joined up before the war. I asked where he was stationed and what his thoughts were when Pearl Harbor was attacked. Paul, in his usual nonchalant manner, replied, “I was there.”
