From the article:
Traditional Thanksgiving gatherings with family and friends are fun but can increase the chances of getting or spreading COVID-19 or the flu," the agency said in its updated guidance. "Follow these tips to make your Thanksgiving holiday safer."
Since the flu is an annual event we should expect these restrictions to continue from now on....
"A $750 million computer program set up by the SBA in April was supposed to flag suspicious disaster-aid applications before they were approved, but last month Bloomberg News quoted current and former SBA workers and outside fraud investigators describing widespread fraud that the computers had failed to catch. Even a person posing as President Donald Trump made off with a $5,000 grant."

I haven't heard the show today yet (I listen when I do my walks) so maybe the boys covered this.
Came across this article proposing a 5% tax on people who work from home after the lockdowns. The only justification seems to be that it's a privilege so it should be taxed. And since you're saving money, you should give it to the gov't.

I'm a little low on work right now if you're looking for a Dude Named Ben who does Drupal feel free to drop me a line. (PS, unlike the government, I don't do million dollar websites). Thanks!
I miss the days of accidental discovery on the web. Clicking the random button on a webring or hitting the stumble button on stumbleupon and being transported to a stranger's blog or a random page about some topic I know little about. Sometimes fun, sometimes silly, sometimes informative but always an adventure.
Now everything is so targeted. It's either things I'm looking for, or an algorithm determines that I'll be interested in. It might be more efficient but it's no longer fun.

This little diddy comes out of the the Production and Design Group at Wagner College / NYU.
