Missouri Gov. Mike Parson suggested Tuesday he he isn’t enthusiastic about working with other states to reopen their economies in a coordinated way once the coronavirus crisis has passed.

“At the end of the day, you’re going to have to put your state first,” he said. “We’re going to approach that with what’s best for the state of Missouri.”

That’s the spirit, governor. We’re all in this, uh, separately.
