I don't understand why people who care about others draw the line at certain types of animals because they taste good. All the chickens and cows I've met are just as alive and sentient as a dog or cat. Cows will even play fetch style games. They are alive, they feel pain, they are sentient and deserve the same rights we all do. Please consider this before finding justifications to put them or the byproducts of their captivity on your plate.

More and more instances of "[previously physical presence required thing] over Zoom" is further evidence that [thing] was an archaic formality where presence was never physically required to function

Bureaucracies don't change until faced with an existential crisis

The city of Oakland explicitly declared the authority to commandeer and lease properties for unsheltered persons in response to the COVID-19 crisis, but has completely failed to act.

If you have money to give, it would be a great idea to send it their way. They have a covid-19 relief fund on their website:
