Kyle D. Pruett: Flyovers healed no one

When F-15s buzzed Northampton Wednesday, I was on Zoom with a nurse anesthetist in Springfield, discussing how she kept going to work, despite her fears of insufficient personal protective equipment supplies to keep her family “safe from her life” when she came home.

As the thunder faded, I wondered how much F-15 fuel and maintenance costs were per hour? How many masks and gowns, testing kits, basic research could our commander-in-chief have released from federal stockpiles or encouraged industry to provide instead of staging a mock patriotic flyby that healed nothing, or reassured anybody that COVID-19 would succumb to military might?

Vote in November as though lives depended on it. They just might.
