Today, I moved out of the studio room that I rented the last few weeks. I can feel a universe in which I was quarantined there, because that’s how it felt. Even though the studio was in the back of a house, I didn’t engage with the other housemates. The door to the house was even duct taped to minimize air flow between the house and the studio.

There are interesting parallel universes around the Biden/Reade story. One is that Reade has changed her name and so in some universes is known by a different name. The other is Reade’s mother called into Larry King Live and asked for help. There is now videos of this episode, from 27 years ago, posted on YouTube. It amazes me how 27 years ago, Tara Reade’s Mom felt the universe today and made the decision to call into Larry King Live.
