They try not to talk or even exhale. They avoid eye contact lest the virus be spread visually. Some people wear face masks-- useful for preventing them from picking their noses, which, once you’ve touched a deadly railing, could implant the virus in your body and in a week or two you’d be in a TB sanitarium on a desert island, tended by nurses in hazmat suits.

" As for me," says Keillor, "I think the Leader is inhaling so much hand sanitizer that he doesn't know a Corona from a White Owl or an El Rey del Mundo. What provision does the Constitution make for ditziness? It's not a High Crime or Misdemeanor but isn't this guy supposed to have helpers around?"
