Loveless (Edit) - Lo Moon
My mother texts me multiple times a day either in a private message or in a group message with my brother and his girlfriend. Most of the texts are “just checking in” or “thinking of you.” I already feel like the world’s worst daughter for complaining about this, but it feels like it’s too much. I am 28 years old, married, and have a 1-year-old. I work full time in an ER, which obviously has its own stressors. For this reason, I haven’t seen my mom since the pandemic started. I know it’s getting to her not being able to see me and my daughter, and I empathize with that. I video chat with her at least once a week, and I respond to her texts most of the time, but honestly she’s driving me crazy. We don’t have the relationship that she wishes we had. I’ve always found it hard to talk to her, and we are fundamentally polar opposites. I feel guilty for thinking this, let alone writing it out, because I know I would feel devastated if my daughter felt this way. Do I suck it up and go on with the multiple texts and group texts and realize it’s not that bad in the grand scheme of it all, or do I upset her and set boundaries?
Larry Kramer, playwright and AIDS activist, dies aged 84
Larry Kramer has died aged 84.
The author and prominent LGBTQ+ rights activist died on Wednesday (27 May) morning in Manhattan, the New York Times has reported. His husband David Webster said pneumonia was the cause.
As well as receiving acclaim for his writing, including the autobiographical 1985 play The Normal Heart, Kramer spent much of his life campaigning for equality and awareness around the AIDS epidemic.
In 1982 he founded the Gay Men’s Health Crisis to assist people living with HIV, and in 1987 helped launch ACT UP, a group that used headline-grabbing tactics to bring attention to AIDS and demand faster research for treatment.

Younger blacks and Latinos are dying of COVID-19 at higher rates in California
Black and Latino Californians ages 18 to 64 are dying more frequently of COVID-19 than their white and Asian counterparts relative to their share of the population, a Times analysis of state health department data shows.
Newly released figures on the grim toll of the novel coronavirus show once again profound disparities in people’s odds of survival that fall along racial and ethnic lines. In this case, the data also belie the conventional wisdom that old age is the primary risk factor for death.
When accounting for each group’s percentage of the population, blacks and Latinos under the age of 65 had a higher share of fatalities than even older blacks and Latinos. The trend is particularly noticeable among those age 18 to 49, The Times analysis found.

'We've Seen A Lot Of Brothers Die.' NYC Bus Operators Witness Loss Amid Pandemic
New York City bus operators Tyrone Hampton and Frank de Jesus have witnessed a crushing loss in their field of work. As of Wednesday, 83 Metropolitan Transportation Authority workers have died from COVID-19, 30 of them also bus operators.
Hampton, 50, and de Jesus, 30, spoke for a remote StoryCorps conversation about how the outbreak is putting their love for the job to the test.
Earlier this month, both operators decided to stay home from work in an effort to protect themselves and their loved ones. De Jesus returned to work this week.
De Jesus is following in the footsteps of his father, who was a bus operator. When his dad didn't have a babysitter, de Jesus would join him on the bus.
"I would sit there right by his feet and he would give me the microphone, and he would tell me to say, 'Lexington and 96 Street, coming up next,' " de Jesus said. "So you would hear me in my little baby voice, 'Lexington and 96 Street, up next!' "
"I loved it. I thought it was the best job in the world as a kid. So, I'm here because I love the job."
Even in the absence of a pandemic, it's not a job for the fainthearted, Hampton said.
