Who could have guessed (except for a friend of mine) that just 30 days ago nations would be locking down, global markets would be in free fall, and people would be afraid to touch paper money for fear of catching a virus.
But as sure as God made little green apples, all of that has happened, and all the while technology whiz-kids have figured out an ID mark that no sane person would refuse.
