Ms. Sheridan,

I’ve been reading your articles since you began at Wednesday Journal. I’m always impressed by how well written and thorough your work is. I just finished the piece on monkeypox (let’s hope for a new name for that virus), and appreciated your clear style and unflinching ability to use the proper language even when discussing a sensitive medical situation. I worked for the AIDS Foundation of Chicago and know how difficult it is to discuss an illness that affects everyone but might be spreading within a marginalized group at a higher rate. It’s tricky.
