Given that masks are a required fashion staple, they’ve organized an event, in partnership with Maryland Art Place that will run from November 7-13 in which people can make masks a fashion statement.  It’s called MASKerade.  You’ve got a couple more days to get involved!   Jon Kaplan and Frank McNeil join Tom on Zoom…
