We had talked about discussing COVID-related topics.   Klein has an interesting
article in Vox
<https://www.vox.com/2020/5/21/21262329/coronavirus-liberals-conservatives-polls-afraid-psychology-distacing>
in which he poses what I think is an interesting question:

Given that "Conservatives react more strongly than liberals to signs of
danger, including the threat of germs and contamination...why is it
conservatives who are downplaying the coronavirus, and liberals who are
sheltering in fear of it?"
