Greetings from the Canal

We also watched some baseball including another Orioles victory over the Red Sox and the unfortunate walk-off homer in the Angels-White Sox game, plus the women's NCAA championship, in which I rooted for Arizona but don't have a strong connection to either team so Stanford's win doesn't bother me. And I loved the short-format Zoom SAG Awards, which felt intimate and lively and should be a model for other award shows!
