We’re talking about two recent pieces in The Wall Street Journal: one describing a worldwide “pandemic fatigue,” the other arguing that it’s finally time for the United States to adopt a nationwide mask mandate. Today, we’ll take the temperature, so to speak, of the American pandemic response as October turns into November. Plus: Puppies and SNL.
Here’s a list of everything we talked about today:
- “Winter Is Coming: Time for a Mask Mandate” from The Wall Street Journal
- “Pandemic Fatigue Is Real — and It’s Spreading” also from The Wall Street Journal
- “Need a Pandemic Puppy ASAP? Call the Bernedoodle Delivery People” from, you guessed it, The Wall Street Journal
- “Twitter Says Adele Singing on ‘SNL’ Has Saved 2020, and Honestly, True” from Hello Giggles
