    Red Beans and Ricely Yours, Austin

    This community initiative, headed by Chris Cubas and Maris Clegg, is dedicated to providing free meals (of red beans and rice, andouille sausage, cornbread, fruit, dessert, and a drink) to Austinites in need. "On Tuesdays, we will provide a link to sign up for a free home-made meal delivered to you with safety in mind," goes their announcement on Facebook. "There is no judgment and the form is anonymous. If you have been affected by the impact of Covid-19 or are having a hard time, we would like to make a small portion of your day a little bit better." Or, if you'd like to donate your time in driving, baking treats, or providing cases of nonalcoholic beverages, please reach out to redbeansaustin@gmail.com.

But then, we're not necessarily talking about the people who create; we're more precisely considering the people who consume and perhaps market what other people create, and who often enjoy a frisson of second-hand transgression among the piles of material wealth that help distract them, however briefly, from mortality's gaping maw.:
