    "A Short Walk in the Hindu Kush". I had it on my wish list when a friend said it was a long slog with dry British wit. I've probably watched too many British features on PBS and the review was...

    An article in the local news said that cases of the common cold and seasonal flu were down significantly due to the extra measures for Covid. I suppose that's almost a given.
