No matter who you are — even, say, a New York Times columnist — it’s so important that you stay safe at home this Thanksgiving, because your bubble is likely bigger than you think. Also, the hospitals are already straining ahead of a long winter. We’ll talk about it, plus our favorite Thanksgiving sides in another round of “Half-Full or Half-Empty.”
Here’s a list of everything we talked about today:
- Some background info on Kimberly’s cocktail today
- “I Traced My Covid-19 Bubble and It’s Enormous” from The New York Times Opinion
- “One in Five U.S. Hospitals Face Staffing Crises Within a Week” from Bloomberg
- “Dolly Parton & Friends Set for Live Holiday Special With Pandora” from Billboard
