We’ve been spending a lot of time praising South Korea’s response to the pandemic. Now, it’s time for criticism. S Korea is still doing a lot (A LOT) better than some other places, but they could have done better.

i’m still stranded 3000 miles from where i’m paying rent. no road trips home for my family through pandemic land. last night i did the ACA marketplace choice thing. there was no choice that would provide more than emergency / urgent care outside the state of California.

For the last 4 years, I’ve delivered food once a month, to same small Iowa town food bank. Prior to March, it was 3/4 of a truck load. By summer, it was 2 trucks. Yesterday, 3 trucks, and continued well after dark until we ran out. Food insecurity is becoming the new normal. pic.twitter.com/hJVpDFyAw1
