I do a Skype chat with my Trump-loving parents every week. Today’s conversation was different. My mom proudly relayed how she had crafted homemade face masks from bandannas, and how they had learned to go to the store at off hours to avoid the crowds. My dad had stopped complaining about missing his pool game and golf outings, and has recognized that they will be sheltering in place for another month, at least. They even pumped me for a list of movies to queue up on Netflix. The real kicker came when my mom wondered aloud why so many people were still going around without masks or practicing social distancing. My dad replied, “they’re getting conflicting information from the news.” And basically implied that he had learned whose word to not take seriously.
