Happy FU Day as truth, lies converge

November 13, 2021

“On November 13th, Felix Unger was asked to leave his place of residence. That request came from his wife...”

Amid pandemics of Covid-19 and disinformation, truth and fiction are this year’s odd couple.

This year, Felix Unger Day arrives as we enter approach a third calendar year with the Covid-19 pandemic. So much that was once commonplace and taken for granted has become a major effort if not a distant dream. It’s a situation that seems too strange to be real. Combining this reality that’s stranger than fiction with the epidemic of falsehoods presented as facts makes truth and fiction an apt odd couple for 2021.
