We hope that today’s “IS IT TRUE” will provoke honest and open dialogue concerning issues that we, as responsible citizens of this community, need to address in a rational and responsible way?IS IT TRUE that 50% of things we worry about never happen?…that 30% of things we worry about isn’t important?  …we should only worry about the 20% that directly affects us?  …we predict starting this week we will be forced to focus on the things that directly affect us?IS IT TRUE according to the United States Surgeon General starting this week you better get ready to experience a 911 and a Pearl Harbor event all wrapped up in one?IS IT TRUE the population of the United States is 327 million people? …it’s been reported by extremely reliable sources that around 2 million people have been tested for the COVID-19 virus?  …so far the people that tested positive are very alarming?IS IT TRUE we are told that numerous people are really upset that the Mayor of Evansville and Vanderburgh County officials are allowing area public and private Golf Courses to stay open during a time like this?IS IT TRUE that the Coronavirus pandemic is creating large amounts of anxiety in the minds of Americans all over the nation?…when times of anxiousness are not ended by time people will often drift from anxiety and into desperation and the paralysis of fear?…the common thing that causes anxiety, desperation and fear among people is uncertainty?…uncertainty can be blunted by leaders being transparent about the reality of what is expected when it is expected and what the plans are to do about it?…there are daily updates on the number of cases of coronavirus, the deaths and the number of new cases in a given day?…right now, the most valuable metric is to look at and study the new cases per day?…when that stops increasing for a week or so and starts down that is an indicator that there is light at the end of the tunnel with some idea of when we will get there?IS IT TRUE the decisions on how we should attack the deadly COVID-19 virus should be determined by scientific research and evidence, not by self-serving politicians?IS IT TRUE that every day, the Trump administration held a press conference to update the American people on what is going on with the coronavirus?…the inclusion of Dr. Deborah Birx and Dr. Anthony Fauci in the mix has been an excellent learning opportunity?…these two people have presented significant information that has been instrumental in teaching the nation to shelter in place and showing the dramatic difference it makes?…we have states that were doing the wrong thing and they are paying the price in lives and commerce?…the graphs they show to teach us what to expect to a certain extent and even when the curve may really be flattened?…transparency is what is calming the nation and the few states where governors are doing daily updates?…this is something that should be happening in every significant city in the United States, including Evansville?IS IT TRUE in other locations that are more transparent, people know what plans are being made for the months of April and May with respect to dealing with the projected overcapacity coming to our hospitals?…it is a well-known fact that some cities have created makeshift morgues to deal with the deaths caused by the COVID-19 virus?…makeshift morgues are being prepared in industrial kitchens that are closed, in cold storage facilities used for food, in refrigerator trucks, and in hockey rinks? …a lack of transparency concerning emergency actions promotes fear and anxiety, desperation and fear when transparency would assuage that fear?IS IT TRUE in Evansville, Indiana that transparency is the job of the Winnecke Administration and if there is one thing that Mayor Lloyd Winnecke excels at, it is talking?…the CCO would like to see Mayor Winnecke initiate some sort of a television question and answer news event where people of Evansville can learn exactly what are his plans to eventually lead us to a safe outcome in the upcoming serge of the deadly COVID-19 virus?…holding this question and answer event would be way more heroic than getting national attention for forgoing haircuts?…this is a chance for Mayor Winnecke to transition from his self-appointed role of a good news ambassador for Evansville to a more important role of a leader during a major health crisis?IS IT TRUE when people get desperate they will do desperate things? …desperation can be caused by loss of employment, not able to pay your water bill, gas and electric bills, mobile phone bill, can’t pay your rent or mortgage payments, experiencing a medical issue, going through a divorce, can’t buy food or medicine, or can’t make your car payment?IS IT TRUE we remember when people felt desperate back in the sixties?  …many of those people rioted in most every major city in America which left death and destruction in their wake?IS IT TRUE next time you vote for someone running for public office we highly recommend that you spend some quality time researching and analyzing them to determine if they have the skills to manage a public crisis?  …it’s obvious that several elected officials are not managing the Coronavirus crisis very well because they are allowing the crisis to manage them?IS IT TRUE we give five (5) cheers to TV Channels 14 and 44 for doing a phenomenal job covering the Coronavirus news?IS IT TRUE we also give five (5) cheers to Channel 14 TV news anchor Jackie Monroe for doing an excellent job interviewing the President of Deaconess Hospital System, Dr. James Porter?IS IT TRUE when the people fear the Government we have Tyranny!  When the Government fears the people we have Liberty?
