HUMOR IN THE TIME OF A PANDEMIC

[Note by Tom Gross]

As Natan Sharansky, who spent years in solidarity confinement as a political prisoner in the Soviet Union, remarked again last week regarding coronavirus: When in isolation, don’t lose your sense of humor; continue making light of the situation, however dire.

On Saturday I sent two further dispatches on the serious side of the coronavirus crisis:

* Gun drawn in fight for frozen food amid coronavirus panic (& Quarantined Italian tenor sings ‘Nessun Dorma’)

* Top Iranian Holocaust-denying cleric says Iran can use future Israeli coronavirus vaccine (& other items)


Below are some cartoons and other images sent I have gathered.

First, a couple of the songs and clips I put on my public Facebook page last week.

 

A SONG FOR OUR TIMES
