During New Year’s Eve, many stayed up not to see the emergence of 2021, but to make sure 2020 made its way out.
At the dawning of 2020, who would have imagined a flock of black swans circling the American landscape that included an unprecedented pandemic, an economic roller coaster, widespread civil unrest, a longstanding contested presidential election and where science has been politicized by a dishonest academic, political and media triumvirate.

Forget that 9 to 5 gig as working from home is expected around the clock. Going out for lunch means moving from your bedroom to your kitchen table. The water cooler has transformed into the washing machine as you try to squeeze in another load in between Zoom meetings. A once twelve second office exchange turns into a never ending reply all e-mail. The silver lining is you can remain anchored in your pajama bottoms and slippers all day, while imbibing on wine tucked away in your oversized coffee mug with your feet propped up on your La-Z-Boy taking in a conference call.
When ailing, masks will do a MacArthur and fade away, but quarantining will last longer, however, that 14-day minimum will be history.

The final chapter of the Indiana Jones series will be released this summer strictly through drive-in theaters. Drive-ins were one enterprise that has actually made a comeback thanks to updated audio technology that has brought surround sound to your hooptie.
