Fair Warning
Fair Warning - Class, Eating Out to Help Out, and mail-in ballots
By Sophie Warnes • Issue #122 • View online
Hello! I hope you’ve had a nice couple of weeks. Mine has been very busy and weird; I know it’s likely at this point that I won’t be moving until next year now, but it dawned on me that I need to actually sort my stuff out because unfortunately even the moving people can’t do that for me. So I’m going through my stuff and giving away all my possessions which feels more like I’m dying than moving away.
In these two weeks I’ve restarted Pilates, obtained a PT at great struggle, and I’m also trying to start low heart rate training. This is honestly a bit of a joke because I cannot physically run any slower than walking pace. Still, a run is a run, and an extremely comfortable 5k is a win I’ll take.
How do I write this thing again?
Some things I’ve learned:

On the home front
Coronavirus fears are taking a toll on Britain’s economy
Local lockdowns and weekend slumps hinder Eat Out to Help Out
Over the pond
Can the Post Office Handle Election Mail? Why the Recession Could Actually Help
How rigid is the middle class in the US, really?
Elsewhere
Covid vaccine update: Tracking progress against coronavirus
How common are roundabouts? I didn’t know there were roundabouts in the US *at all* (I’ve weirdly talked about roundabouts with a bunch of Americans who hate them, so I thought they had none), so I guess I learned something.
How has the pandemic changed working lives?
It’s been a while; I hope you didn’t miss Fair Warning too much! Thank you to everyone who has bought me a coffee lately. You can do so here, or you can sign up to be a Patron (though as you can tell, sometimes I get too busy to write this…)
Did you enjoy this issue?
