    Interesting! I’m currently reading He pole did and the Vile, Erik Lars’s new book. The civilians in London during the uncertain times of the blitz at the beginning of WWII, and their prime minister’s leadership and ability to reassure the citizens is slightly foretelling of what we’re dealing with now.
    Also, I don’t know if Elyse Butler told you, but I wrote to her yesterday that I long for an articulate, thoughtful speaker in these times. Someone who knows more words than “incredible” “good” “great” and “never seen before”. Someone like Winston Churchill, or Barack Obama, or YOU!
    Stay safe!
