At the end of the night, Mark Harrington takes the mike and tries to bring the focus back to the disease. Though his delivery is as rapid-fire as ever, he seems subdued. “We’re going to be hit with a tidal wave of AIDS,” he says. “Last week I went to a memorial service for my friend Brian — ” His voice cracks slightly, and the crowd gets still. “And I’m going to San Francisco, where another is dying.

As Adam Serwer noted, the president only was too happy to reject stay-at-home measures after it became clear that the coronavirus was killing black, Latino, and indigenous people at higher percentages relative to their populations. Even as the death toll rises and this pestilence sweeps throughout rural, whiter communities with lethal force, Trump may very well try deflecting the blame onto black comorbidities and such. I certainly don’t encourage that kind of political erasure in advance of an election, but Puerto Rico is one reason why I expect it. It is why remembering what … [Read more...] about Puerto Rico Was a Precursor for the Pandemic
This is not the first time that an animated series based on the games has been proposed.
