Small thing, but I was on the USC campus yesterday getting my first vaccination. After a year in our containment pod, I was awed by the efficiency and even cheerfulness of everyone there. My favorite moment, though, was when a young fellow, a Dude on a Skateboard, was rattling along with his mask down and an attitude showing. Didn’t take long for a no-nonsense USC security guard to catch him. He gestured pull it up, man and Mr. Dude had to comply. That was nice.
