This is where I should probably put something insightful on the current state of affairs in the United States.

Not today.

I am still processing a lot of what is going on and what should be done.

Be good and kind to each other. Reach out to your friends and family. Make sure they are okay. You’ve heard this for the past two months. I recommend you keep doing it.

Maybe someday I can put my thoughts clearly down on paper. But not today.

I tried to stick to sports and other matters in today’s flakes. Maybe it can get your mind off of things for a few minutes.
