March Madness started this week in a bubble made up of quarantined players, empty arenas and Covid testing. It’s an example of how we are slowly moving towards normal, but also an acknowledgment that the Coronavirus pandemic is a continuing threat.
This week Covid-19 was on the minds of our writers with a look at the American Rescue Act and a discussion of the new CDC rules for vaccinated people. We also celebrated the fact that elections have consequences as demonstrated by the two Democratic Georgia Senators voting to pass President Biden’s plan for financial relief and more vaccinations.
One writer mourned the deaths in Atlanta and discussed how dehumanization leads to racist violence, while another showed how education is the best way to fight disinformation. There was also an open letter to President Biden asking him to release Reality Winner.
Our writers work hard to bring you interesting and informative stories every week. Here’s a chance to see what you missed Last Week in DemCast.
