Monday afternoon, I found myself in the peculiar position of being asked for comment by a member of the press. This happens so infrequently that my own honed, ultra-sensitive, journalistic instincts were piqued. Perhaps I had a story to tell.
Earlier in the day, I had tweeted my dismay at the situation faced by my 84 year-old mother who has not yet been vaccinated. It was like I had opened a vein as other people began to vent with their own experiences. Evidently, she was not alone.
