NEW from me: “I understand that it is not particularly progressive to support the presence of Black people in physics if all we do is assimilate into power structures without challenging the arrangements that underpin them.”

I mean - no shame. And hoping is definitely allowed.

I just keep wandering around muttering "harm reduction" like a yahoo.

Do you have a link? There was def some less clear early data that I saw, but most of the more recent stuff seemed to lean this way. Always happy for more data points.

I just want to encourage us all to figure out coping mechanisms. I know - it has been stupid sauce, and everyone - I know you're fighting hard, and I see and appreciate you.

Maybe it means limited immunity. Maybe it means investing in improved ventilation and decreased capacity for extended periods of time. Surely it means masks and testing easily for the next year.

I extremely do not want this to be the answer, but I know so many of us are holding "Vaccine = Return to normalish" in our hearts and... I wish folks would have some more involved conversations about what if that doesn't pan out how we're hoping.

I'm not saying we should endanger teachers or kids. We should do *everything we can* to prioritize their ability to have safe spaces. And we're not doing that by a long shot. (And that means $ to study and repair ventilation, for example). Places aren't even trying.

Polio kill babies and toddlers. Adults are at *much lower risk*. We lived with polio for decades. And I see that you teach. I totally understand initial stances around staying home. And we should expect more from our school districts, cities, and states.

You seem obtuse on purpose, so I'll wish you luck. COVID-19 is an airborne disease, and it can spread asymptomatically, so yes. All approaches are harm reduction. But societally we don't seem interested in figuring it out for our kids.

I mean, don't get me wrong, our kids are still pretty locked down. But it isn't an illness like polio that is *worse* for young kids. (Kids still get sick and sometimes die, just not at extra special rates)

For Summer 2021 Gordon Research Conferences, GRC plans on "providing single rooms only, accommodating social distancing in meeting/poster rooms & serving meals outdoors where possible." Would you attend such a meeting?

I'm really disappointed that the NBA answer isn't doing better.

(That being said - In much/most of the US right now community spread is pretty out of control. Which is why you need to interrupt it with something like a brief actual shut down to restart things.)

Yeah, I think the ventilation issue remains shitty - mostly because building maintenence/infrastructure is always low down the list unless it is DEEPLY EMERGENCY LIKE. The university faces a similar problem.

Our kids are suffering a lot. Instead of prioritizing them, we're opening bars and movie theaters.

The data shows us that kids aren't particularly special in this pandemic (luckily - unlike polio, for example, which was dangerous for the youngest of kids.). So where community spread is in control, kids in school is probably ok (with plenty of precautions).
