This...is America. 80 years ago now, Edward R. Murrow used to open his broadcasts from wartime London with similar words. I can easily imagine a BBC reporter returning the favor as London, and the rest of the world look on in increasing dismay.

Let Them Eat Dirt

The coronavirus pandemic has hit the U.S. incredibly hard. As of this writing, there are 1.7M cases, and over 100K deaths. The effects are not just devastating to the health of those who catch it - it has also pushed our health care "system" to the limits (including those front-line workers dealing with the sick).

Good Morning.

Here is a bowl of delicious "Trippa alla Romana". A depression-era food that can be classified as "Italian Soul Food". It's a longtime favourite for 3 generations of the Italian side of my family.
