1. Times are tough and we are realizing how many things depending on the ability to gather together. Theaters are no exception. I got the call yesterday that the last two shows I already had tickets to were cancelled, and of course I had hoped to see a few other things. The ripple effects of these things are not small. I found this story where two award winning playwrights had been asked to consider returning their advance received for cancelled shows.
2. It turns out this one time, the Army tried to bomb a lava flow. It went about as well as you might expect.
3. I found this article taking a look at "Pushing Daisies", a show I loved, and how it addresses an admittedly different view of social distance, inspired in part by another epidemic, really interesting, and made me want to watch the show again.
