All equal

They call death “The Great Equalizer,” but so too can be an emergency.
There’s not much difference between driving a Maserati and driving a Ford Focus when there’s nowhere to go.
Not much difference between dining regularly at the Westmoreland Club and dining regularly at Wendy’s when both are closed.
Not much difference between the softest, most luxurious toilet paper and the cheapest store brand when you’ll take whatever you can get.
Barriers tend to disintegrate at times like this. It’s reminiscent of the Great Flood of 1972. When the stock broker is filling sand bags right next to the stock boy, they soon discover they are more alike than different.
Too bad it takes a flood, or a novel coronavirus to remind us.
