Between Two Buns

“To follow the burger is to glimpse the lasting toll of this pandemic: on the beef supply chain, on the restaurant industry, on the people who were struggling before this catastrophe began, kept going to work throughout it and are still waiting to see what their lives will become when it ends. Solano tucked the spatula under the patty. It spiraled into the air, one moment closer to a destiny that was set in motion two years ago.” WaPo, with an interesting look at our changing pandemic world. The lives upended around a $20 cheeseburger. (This is a well done story providing a rare glimpse into different parts of the economy. I’m surprised it wasn’t on Medium.)
