before and after

We stand at a rare moment, one that will separate history into before and after for generations I DON’T OFTEN USE THIS SPACE TO DIRECT your attention to other publications, but I do recommend you check out an article Science published online on Sept. 24. Titled SINGING IN A SILENT SPRING, it adds a new entrant to the list of uplifting changes in the natural world that occurred when we humans went into temporary retreat at the start of the pandemic.

WARNING SIGNS RE “WHEN WILL WE GET A Vaccine?” [Sept. 21–28]: I remember sitting in my third-year microbiology lecture toward the end of last year, listening to the professor warn us that the next pandemic will come and the world will not be ready. There was a sense of urgency that prompted me to consider why the world didn’t seem worried about this. So when COVID-19 began its journey across the world, it wasn’t a shock to me. I couldn’t help but feel frustrated. Why didn’t we listen to those so desperately trying to prevent this disaster?

battle for the senate

LESS THAN TWO WEEKS FROM ELECTION DAY, Senate Republicans are caught in a political vise. More and more members of their party are realizing that President Donald Trump is hurting their chances for re-election—and very possibly for control of the chamber. “We are staring down the barrel of a blue tsunami,” Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse said on a recent call with constituents, published by the Washington Examiner. GOP Senators are in a catch-22: standing by the President could hurt them, but straying too far risks losing support from his stalwart base.
