The perils and pleasures of working from home
Yes, the apocalypse looms, in large part thanks to the Trump administration's pandemic "debacle," with experts predicting the worst is yet to come and urging ever more testing, caution, social distance. And yes, stubborn life goes on, with resilient bipeds, as is their wont, doing what they can to get by. Many schools, museums and other public institutions are trying to fill the gap with online resources, from zoom conferences to remote teaching to DIY work-outs. Shuttered zoos are offering welcome distractions: Post-National Panda Day, D.C.'s Panda Cam remains live, the Houston Zoo has six live webcams - gorillas and rhinos and chimps oh my - and Chicago's Shedd Aquarium let the penguins out to explore their fish-filled world, which was pretty cool. Meanwhile, people self-quarantined in multiple creative ways, took to therapeutic, rudely hilarious, frequently toilet-paper-themed meme-making, and, if they could, switched to working from home, often in the photogenic company of defiantly rambunctious, four-footed colleagues. In these dark days, take a goofy break, thank Al Gore for inventing the Internet, and stay safe.
