Feel better Tim.

Glad and grateful you're taking COVID-19 seriously, instead of doubling down as you have until now in several previous dismissives, marginalizing risks, minimizing gravitas, even (and most lamely) mocking the very name of the worst pandemic in our lifetimes, indeed the cause of millions of deaths over the past 2.5 years--including those of several family members and friends of mine, though I hope, pray, and wish not yours--as…

underwhelming drum roll please…

an invisible coroni-macaroni sickness.

You shouldn’t take exception to this critique, and I’ll tell you why.

It’s not just you Tim.

Hyperbolic polemic, imbecilic charlatanry, and baseless anti-science erasure peddled as lo-fi copy and edgy hot takes have poisoned the public discourse and newsfeeds since the jump, led no less by none other than Trump himself.

Alas, not exactly the kind of company to aspire to or be envious of.

Funny how quickly worldviews change when blissful ignorance and passive privilege are replaced by brutal experience and perceived perils.

Feel better. Be better. Do better. (Write better.) 🫠
