This will be an ongoing, weekly post that will highlight the things you should have read (at least in MY opinion).
Articles you might have missed:
- About a dozen states report upticks in new cases as the U.S. outlook improves.
- Hunger Program’s Slow Start Leaves Millions of Children Waiting, by Jason DeParle.
- So, What Can We Do Now? A guide to staying safe this summer, by Amanda Mull.
- Americans Aren’t Getting the Advice They Need, by Julia Marcus.
- The World Is Still Far From Herd Immunity for Coronavirus, by Nadja Popovich and Margot Sanger-Katz. Look at the charts.
What I’m writing:
- The Coronavirus Has Made It Obvious. Teenagers Should Start School Later. We’re asking teens to sacrifice so much already. They’re missing proms and friends and anything even approaching a normal social life. Some, like my oldest, will not have a graduation ceremony this year. The least we could do is let them sleep.
What I’m reading:
- Thirty-six Thousand Feet Under the Sea, By Ben Taub at the New Yorker. Set some time aside to read this. It’s worth it.
