#EidMubarak on Eid al-Fitr or "The Feast of Breaking the Fast," which marks the end of Ramadan. Calligrapher Mohamed Zakariya designed this 2001 stamp in our @nationalpostalmuseum collection.

      I know, my daughter and her husband are down in Cape Canaveral, they are watching the launch and going to the beach. Dumbasses.

        Well, maybe one small note of hope: the data on transmission shows *interior* spaces are much worse than outside, especially if people aren’t packed together and/or shouting or singing.

        This virus is also highly susceptible to UV, so outdoors, and especially beaches if people are spread out, may be fairly safe.

        Just tell the two of them to maintain some distance and stay away from shouty people (probably always a good idea).
