Anybody hear from Dr Fauci this week?
I saw a lovely piece he wrote on his friendship w/ Larry Kramer, the AIDS activist, playwright & co-founder of GMHC & ActUp who died last week at age 84. I miss hearing from him. I get a little nervous when Dr Fauci disappears like this. I wonder why he's lying low.
Heard the craziest thing from a neighbor earlier today. She told me Fauci was invested in the hydroxychloroquin & should be in jail. I had to say no that's backwards; it's Trump who was invested in that should be in jail. She told me she heard that from medical workers she knows working in hospitals.
She shows me her phone w/ pride & says our President & says he's great! I said HE'S the criminal & should be in jail for several reasons at least. She said to me, "you've never lived in Russia', which is true. She's Russian & probably moved here in middle age.
We got to talking when I stopped to ask why there are barricades (police type) at our curb. She said from Police after hearing rumor that folks are coming to our neighborhood (very white) to take back from the white Neighborhoods. I told her it's nonsense & explained what fear mongering is.
Also told her I feel much more targeted (as Jews) 'cause they made a park across the street from me into a Holocaust Memorial & I explained what it meant when I said that felt like the putting of Crosshairs over my home.
I didn't have the patience to ask her why she likes Trump & thinks he's great. But she's a co-President of the Coop Bldg in which I live, so she's wealthy, I guess that's why she likes him, maybe she benefited from his tax break for the wealthy, I sure didn't (I rent, not own).
