Owen Strachan: Signs of Hope in Treating Coronavirus

Chances are good right now that you feel like you’re drowning in bad news.

Here’s some seeming good news: in the midst of Coronavirus spread, it appears that some doctors are seeing a positive response to a new drug combination called, in abbreviated form, the “Hydroxy cocktail.”

In New York, one doctor has apparently treated almost 700 patients with good success. In response to this, the FDA per the encouragement of President Trump has given a green light for testing.

At Townhall.com, Kevin McCullough commented on these developments: “Use of the [cocktail] in the USA is already demonstrating life-saving results…due to the generosity (not greed) of “big pharma.””

We await fuller results from the “Hydroxy cocktail” effort. Here is something we know for sure: irrespective of partisan politics, we need good news.

Let’s not fall prey to mud throwing and cheering against our public officials.

If these reports are verified, let’s celebrate a win.

Albert Mohler: A National Emergency

When the President declared a national emergency on the coronavirus, he also declared a national disaster, freeing up billions of dollars and opening the door to exercising extraordinary powers as President in the face of this kind of challenge.

War is the most apt metaphor for the challenge we now face as we’re confronted by the coronavirus.

As far as pandemics go, in order to find anything on this scale, you would have to go back to the 1918 pandemic of the Spanish Flu. The deadliness of that pandemic should be a chastening factor upon us all.

It should remind us that one of our responsibilities on the other side of this crisis is going to rebuild what has been lost—and, in the midst of the crisis, we must not only pray, we must work.

There are many things to be done and it’s going to be up to us to do them.

Medved: The Power of Familiarity and the Race for the Presidency

After Super Tuesday, the choice for president narrowed to three well-known—and very elderly—candidates.

By time of November’s election, Donald Trump, Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders will range in age from 74 to 79; whoever wins will qualify as the oldest president ever inaugurated.

The decisive advantage for Trump, Bernie and Biden involves their name recognition.

Even before he ran the first time, Trump’s decades of celebrity status gave him decisive advantages since most citizens pay scant attention to politics, and instinctively prefer a familiar figure to names you don’t recognize. That’s particularly true at a time when most voters perceive the country’s doing well, or at least holding its own.

In that context, familiarity reliably trumps advanced age.
