Two apposite quotes re Pandemic?

1. HL Mencken, On Politics: A Carnival of Buncombe:-

" As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron."


2.Mick Herron, Dead Lives:-

"...all the work's done low on the food chain. Everyone else just has meetings."
