Plague 6: Amatriciana

Work: memorandum Plague dinner #6: strozzapretti amatriciana, fresh bread, pecan pie.

Happy birthday to my beloved Linda.

Yesterday, the Mayor of our little City of Malden (Official) hosted a call-in show with the chief of police and Karen Colón Hayes. Almost every question in the tedious marathon concerned the caller’s safety or convenience. Almost none concerned volunteer service or preparation for what is to come. The Mayor concluded by saying that “we’ll all get through this.” I hope he understood that this was untrue, because it is very unlikely that all of us will.

Ask not what your city can do for you: ask what you can do for your city. I wish I knew better ways to help prepare for the coming storm.
