Excellent summary, Jake! That's exactly how it feels - like money isn't the currency we need FOX News to pay.

I wonder how many older people, like my relatives, were cut off from the world during the pandemic and became addicted to FOX's friendly, healthy personalities. An alternative world where COVID wasn't that scary and you don't need to feel bad about wanting to see your friends in person. I wonder if we'll ever reckon with the craziness of living through a pandemic, or if we'll do exactly what we did in the 1920s and pretend it never happened.

I ask myself every day if we are making the space to process the COVID-19 in 2020.
