Today, when a friend on Facebook pointed out that you can’t have a pandemic without panic, I was practicing deep breathing. (I’d just read the New York Times.) I had, like so many, been freaking out. But then I started to read about the 1918 flu and how much better off we are facing this virus in no small part to all the advances we’ve made in medicine and in research. And I got just a little bit calmer (until I read about the stock market but it was a rough day for news, right?)

I’ve always been a fan of double blind studies, doctors, and science but right now they’re pretty much my favorite thing ever. I’m thinking I’d like to read some romance novels that feature heroes and heroines that are scientists, doctors, etc…. And I know you guys are the best place to get recommendations for such.

So hit me. (And remember to breathe.)
