We aren’t the place we as soon as thought we’d be. As 2021 wanes, the pandemic lingers together with conspiracy junkies. (You possibly can even say due to them.)

Issue within the irritating political gridlock and our tradition’s sustained divisiveness, and it is no surprise that everybody’s feeling drained.
We have traded final yr’s existential stress for this fall’s situational melancholy.
