Opinions

Writing for a newspaper has been a life-long dream of mine. Seriously. I dressed up as a reporter for Halloween in the third grade, complete with a briefcase and pencil behind my ear. Although in practice, I learned a reporter’s gear is more like a 20 ounce Yeti filled to the brim with coffee and a tape recorder; and this year in particular, my signature supplies were hundreds of sticky notes up on my kitchen wall mapping out everything I needed to explore, research, investigate and explain, trying to keep up with the whirlwind of 2020.

Texans remain wary of the coronavirus, but are much more willing to go out, and to take part in activities that seemed a lot riskier just a couple of months ago.

Misery loves company, but it’s cold comfort that many of you — like me — still haven’t filed your 2020 income tax returns.
