Talking About the Tiger in the Room

We need to address the Tiger in the room. The Tiger, of course, as seemingly the entire country knows after a couple of weeks of shutdowns/social distancing is Netflix’ Tiger King. A docuseries  full of bizarre characters that would be the envy of a Coen brothers...
