We find ourselves in an unprecedented time. Just a short while ago, on March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a global pandemic.

To combat the rapid spread of the virus, scientists have recommended social distancing. U.S. states have declared a state of emergency. States have issued executive orders to their citizens to stay at home . Non-essential businesses, schools, and large public events have been canceled and closed.

Are you a nurse, doctor, or a critical infrastructure worker? Has your supply of safety equipment – gloves and masks – been rationed by your employer because there isn’t enough to go around?

As if the mounting death toll around the world isn’t enough during the COVID-19 pandemic, there are always people who are trying to make a profit off of the dire needs of others.

You might call it “retail arbitrage.” The federal government might call it “price gouging” or “profiteering.”

You know how you should never make a joke about having a bomb in an airport?

Apparently, it’s now true that there is no room for jokes about coronavirus in public spaces. If you even attempt one, you might end up in jail.

It’s like a scene from a horror movie. Wife drugs husband, douses him in gasoline, sets fire to him, and when he escapes the house alive, runs him over with her van.

The other option is just as horrible: wife finds husband engulfed in flames in their living room, begs him to leave as she escapes the burning house, loses sight of him outside, and accidentally runs over him with her van as she tries to drive away for help.
