How To Talk About India (& South Asia) and Other Writings Like That

Raves and Rants of the Usual Kind

Hi, hi!
Yes, yes, we are still in a pandemic. Yay for the FDA approval of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, and yay for Moderna that’s submitted its validation and trial data to the FDA this week—spectacular week for science, and even more spectacular week for anti-vaxxers who are hard at work moving goal posts, again. And again. And again.

But today I wanted to talk more about what’s important. Good writing. Good food. In this pandemic, we surround ourselves with what we feel comfortable with. Like sourdough starters. Like backyard farming. Like Zoom calls. Okay, maybe not zoom calls, but you know.
