Michael’s Guardian Essay: “Athens, Georgia, was my home. Its leaders are letting Covid-19 wreak havoc”

“Although I now call New York City home, Athens, Georgia, has been a base to me since the late 1970s. It’s where I started REM, and it is a place that I have returned to again and again, even as I have travelled and lived in other places around the globe. Sadly, Athens – also home to the University of Georgia – is now a place that exemplifies the most dangerous aspects of public policy decision-making amid the Covid-19 pandemic.” – Michael Stipe
