Welcome to "It's All Pandemic," a temporary takeover of "It's All Academic" (after my novel, more information here).
It used to feature discussions academic, leaning towards the satiric, but after 500 blogs, academia was already wearing thin for topics. Nothing really matters at the moment in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. For awhile at least the subject matter here looks at the pandemic, short-term and long-term.
