Dan DeJo started this petition to Senator Mitch McConnell

In a recent Senate hearing Senator Rand Paul, junior senator from Kentucky and medical school graduate, harangued Dr. Anthony Fauci about the potential harm if "society meekly submits to an expert." If that expert is wrong, Paul continued, then a "great deal of harm may occur when we allow one man’s policy or one group of small men and women to be foisted on an entire nation.” It's a safe assumption that Americans are aware of the harm that a self described expert (or genius) can wreak on a nation. Paul followed this up with an appeal to allow children to go back to school (something every parent is praying for), and concluded with a plea that "we just need more optimism."

I think we all agree that optimism would be most welcome! Nothing inspires optimism in a people like belief in the knowledge and competency of the very leaders elected to see said people through a crisis. But Paul's argument for sending children back to school demonstrated a frightening misunderstanding of population health. Luckily a perfect remedy exists: a free, on-line course on Covid-19 and the principles of contact tracing, available at: coronavirus.jhu.edu/contact-tracing. 

Senator McConnell, help your junior senator achieve his goal! Force him to take this excellent course so he can come to his next Senate hearing a well-informed leader, inspiring optimism and confidence with his intelligent comments and his evidence-based solutions.
