I’m pretty used to seeing people in scrubs. I take medical workers to and from their jobs all the time. But, come to think of it, it’s true: I’m seeing those scrubs a lot less often lately. Even getting in the damn Uber from their homes, going to their jobs, they might be feeling the same opprobrium one nurse describes in Erin McCarthy’s story, in which four nurses describe the emotional impact of their jobs and working with COVID-19 patients, some of whom are in denial that the virus is real.
This is unforgivable.

There is a new blog post entitled, “Poor Ukraine, so far from God and so close to Russia.”
