David Waldman, handling the KITM microphone with only his toes for the time being, carefully ushers in a new week:

Coronavirus is a huge PR problem for Donald Trump, although Trump projects only a couple million dead, and most wouldn’t have voted for him anyhow. Greg Dworkin reminds us that coronavirus doesn’t care about your happy talk, and the the market cares even less about Donald’s

Schools should close before it’s too late. North Korea has a lot of sick people now, as Italy locks up and pulls down the shade
