I continue to check my little dashboard of San Francisco COVID numbers each morning to figure out whether heading into the grocery store to pick out my own produce is a worthwhile morale boost or an embarrassing risk.

Lately, all three numbers I track have been below the pretty-safe line. It's a good time in San Francisco to catch up on inessentials.

Anyhow, I went to the supermarket this morning and all the ginger root was scrawny, but at least I got to pick out the least-scrawniest. By such actions I prepare my attitude for the USA presidential election coming up in a few months.
