The Fauci Awards (6 minute video):
By Don McCanne, M.D.
As a resident of Orange County, California, I want to give my special thanks to Dr. Nichole Quick, who appears in this video.
Our home looks down on Dana Harbor, which is our favorite place to walk. Signs are posted indicating that face masks are required, as is social distancing. To no surprise in this conservative county, compliance is relatively poor. In response, I designed the following T shirt:
In spite of my sincerity, I decided that I could face repercussions by wearing this shirt, so I don’t. Instead, we walk in our own neighborhood which has light traffic because of the dead end streets. Though we wear our masks and maintain social distancing, it is still a pleasure to greet our neighbors as we walk by, something new for us this year since previously our schedules had been too full for neighborhood walks. We can add to our list our thanks for the nice neighbors we have.
And may the spirit move us to achieve health care justice for all.
(Perplexed? Me too.)
