business news in context, analysis with attitude

Two things are on KC's mind this morning.

First, the roving underground parties reportedly taking place all over New York City (and, undoubtedly, in a lot of other places) where people can congregate in tight spaces without social distancing and without wearing masks, giving in to a desire to socialize and deluding themselves that the pandemic's threats are in the history books.  It proves, he says, that Forrest Gump's mother was right.

Second, KC addresses some criticisms that he has received lately from readers who feel that MNB's coronavirus coverage is a) off-mission, and b) too political.
