CoViD-19: More On Airborne Transmission (More of What We Already Knew) | Reassessing Work | Problems With Fuel | Today Should've Been Ahmaud's 27th Birthday |


(Taken by Vito de Stefano for NBC SoundDiego 1.23.20)

I do my best to bookmark interesting things to share later, but for the life of me I cannot find this Op-Ed I read last night nor can I remember where I read it so hopefully I'll resolve that brain fart because it was a great take on the trouble employers are claiming to have hiring people. I've found a similar one from Washington Post but it's not as riveting as the one I read last night. I'll try to find it in my history or something. 

We're pretty excited because tonight, me and D have a double date at the Casbah with our friends. It will be our first time eating with other people at a place that isn't my house or my parents' house since well before last March. I kinda wish Casbah had a reservation system, but I'm sure it will be just fine. I'm doing my best to quit Uber so we'll sort out the designated driver thing before we head down. I'm keeping it short because I have to get ready but I hope everyone is enjoying San Diego. There are numerous stories about the high cost of travel expected this summer as hotel, airfare, gas, and car rental prices are all through the roof as businesses exploit the pandemic to try and make up for lost revenue (even though we all know they got bailouts and PPP) so it feels really good to live in San Diego where every day is a staycation and you can find a million awesome things to do.

I did want to note that today should've been Ahmaud Arbery's 27th birthday and we need consequences and convictions for his murderers and we need these cases expedited and tried immediately for his family to get any semblance of justice. White power must be fought everywhere it shows its face, from our communities and neighbors all the way to elected officials.   

Stay safe out there.
