Exurban Microcosm

I drove to the KFC near our home to grab some grilled chicken. As I passed the Allen Police Station, I saw a few dozen protesters peacefully protesting with signs. I also saw a couple of police officers looking across the street at the protesters, alert but not hostile. Four odd middle-age guys had rifles flung over their shoulders, but otherwise inactive, representing the far right. The whole scene was looting-free and probably gluten-free.

I solved 5 of 6 chess puzzles this morning. My overall average is 57%. I saw a Widow Skimmer dragonfly at Salmon Park. Radio sports talk in a time of virus and national unrest seems particularly off-key.
