Memo From a News Hound
As I sat in my car on 29 February 2020, listening to public officials announce the first COVID-19 death in the United States, I knew I needed to transform my daily news summary created for family into something with more structure.
So I started writing a daily news summary, when there was very little summarization taking place. I wrote daily until mid-July, when I paused for surgery. I still publish, although on a much less frequent basis. And I have branched out, somewhat, to voting issues. I have a long-standing interest in public policy and worked for King County Elections for a decade.
