The New York Times has chosen a simple yet powerful memorial message honoring the 100,000 Americans who have already died from the coronavirus. It’s devoted the entire front page to a list of the victims, with a one-line biography, such as “Romi Cohen, 91, New York City, saved 56 families from the Gestapo.” Every time Donald Trump mentions the statistics of COVID-19, it is with lack of interest, in his characteristic monotone. This simple memorial on the front page of the Times is a powerful reminder that these Americans were people of diverse backgrounds, who contributed to America in countless ways.
There is no photo on the front page. That’s a first as well.
Trump will either ignore the Times or pretend to cancel his subscription once again. He’s out playing golf now, anyway.
