Some time late last week, I experienced a challenge from a casual acquaintance during a visit to the post office.

“Hey, Fitsko,” he called out recognizing me even with my face-covering mask. “I read your column about optimism — you know the one you wrote about staying positive. So, tell me, what do you have to say positive about all this coronavirus crap?”

Mike Fitsko is a retired principal and longtime columnist from New Braunfels.
