In the “Batman” trilogy (the previous one, since they reboot these franchises before I even get a chance to watch the latest installation), the villainous Joker, played by Heath Ledger, has the catchphrase, “Why So Serious?”

I know why. We’ve experienced trauma over the past 25 months. This week, the U.S. passed the grim milestone of one million deaths attributed to the coronavirus. The World Health Organization estimates that about 15 million people around the world have died since January 2020.
