So that's one thing to help stay afloat, in these troubling times: the daily good news - big, small, local, global - so long as it's good, and so long as it's news. Worth checking out - and she's very much okay with people replying with more, too.
sovay recently recalled her experience of a large protest march in 2011, and her observation then that in large crowds, mobile phones (cell phones) don't work, or don't work well. This was absolutely new to me - and set me thinking.
Of course pay phones are being ripped out everywhere, and have been for years. I can see the inevitability of this. But given the enormous importance of communication in times of crisis, I'm thinking we should all encourage the preservation of remaining public landline phone facilities. (And maybe be aware of where these might be, in case of need.)
