We live in interesting times. We are learning what is possible when we are threatened by a proximate and acute threat: what we need and what we can do without, and that the social contract is not dead. I hear that people working on COVID-19 are having virtual meetings to solve it, unlike climate scientists who have been flying around to solve climate change (the phrase f%*king for virginity comes to mind). We are also learning, many of us, that we are truly the lucky ones: in jobs that can be done remotely, with tenure, in places with strong health systems and public safety nets. Kudos to all who are working to minimize the impacts of these uncertain times for the unlucky. Be well.
