On Monday morning, while doomscrolling past the news of the day, I came across a rare, non-portentous item: a photo of Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson. The Hollywood couple was captured awkwardly balancing Greek passports, alongside the prime minister and first lady of Greece, accompanied by the caption: "@ritawilson @tomhanks are now proud Greek citizens!"
So I screengrabbed the photo—courtesy of Greece's prime minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis—and posted it to Twitter because, why not? As someone who's been quarantining in Brooklyn since mid-March (thanks, President Trump!), and dreaming of an island getaway, it seemed like harmless, escapist fare.
