Enforcing sensible safety rules such as masks is a good start, but such measures will still restrict activities and be insufficient to ensure confidence. Imagine, however, as economist Paul Romer has suggested, that we invest in sufficient capacity so all of us, without regard to symptoms, are given accurate tests regularly (say, every two weeks) and we enable and even mandate isolation for those infected to prevent further spread. Methods like group testing (mixing several samples for a single test to see if the group tests negative, as the U.S Army did to battle syphilis during World War II) could help while testing supplies remain limited. … [Read more...] about Op-Ed: Coronavirus brought economic catastrophe.

The parade was to end at the Venice Pavilion on the beach with a reading of a “Declaration of Independence.” Like the 1776 document, the Venice declaration was long and detailed, and the section on police was particularly pointed. “The LAPD has terrorized our community,” the activists declared, “breaking into our homes, confiscating our property, harassing and arresting residents without justification, beating residents on the streets and in jail, and denying us use of public places for peaceful assembly.” An independent city of Venice could have a police force that would be “non-violent.” … [Read more...] about Op-Ed: Venice tried to oust the LAPD 50 years ago.

To dramatize the consequences of this anthropological and ecological vision, Pynchon sets Gravity’s Rainbow at the end of World War II in the killing “Zone” of border-broken Europe. Characters from all inhabited continents gather in this Zone to hunt the special rocket 00000 created by Nazi scientists, some of whom would soon move to the U.S. There are also glimpses of concentration camps and a reference to the atomic devastation of Hiroshima. Although about the 20th-century’s murderous past, as well as human prehistory, the novel and its rocketry really predict the future, our present in which death can surprise us from the sky, flying in from very far away—from nuclear weapons launched by North Korea or from a virus launched by a diseased bat in China.
