Will Covid-19 Change How Amazon-Haters See Amazon?

Amazon looks pretty good right now

As we stay at home in response to the Covid-19 pandemic:

  • We still get Amazon deliveries;
  • Whole Foods (owned by Amazon) remains open to supply food;
  • Amazon Prime Video provides much needed entertainment; and
  • Amazon cloud supports Netflix and many other services; and
  • We can read buy and read books electronically on our Kindles.

This isn’t a good time to go to a bookstore even if you can find one that’s open.

Although owned by Jeff Bezos (not Amazon), The Washington Post provides critical news important to our health and our democracy.

I’m glad Amazon and Jeff Bezos are around as we live through this global emergency. The staff at my local Whole Foods have been phenomenal. The Washington Post is a national treasure. And I enjoy Amazon Prime Video and Netflix.
