“COVID incarceration proves to be false imprisonment.” That is what this week’s Connie’s Corner headline was supposed to be. Until I received the results of my “second opinion” test, I was 99.99% certain that I did not have Covid-19 and was the victim of a false positive. Taking steps to retest, I had agreed to accept the results and let it go if they came back positive too. They did and I lied.

Mark Twain is famously quoted as saying “The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.” This event happened in the 1890’s when Twain was travelling abroad. Some folks noticed his absence and leaped to the conclusion that he was dead (seriously?). Well, actress Tanya Roberts is one person who can feel Twain’s pain. Or, more accurately, could have felt it.

This article comes from an entry in my personal journal that I wrote almost twenty years ago when I was a newcomer to Navasota. Not much has changed here, thank goodness!
