“Put the damn mask on’

It amazes me that there are still folks who think that COVID-19 either doesn’t exist or is essentially harmless (“only 1 percent?”).

The reason the pandemic is hanging around, and in fact is undergoing a third surge, is because of thinking like this.

Just because people aren’t falling dead in the street covered in pustules doesn’t mean that this virus shouldn’t be taken seriously.

A quarter of a million dead Americans should be taken very serious.

Want to feel the truth up close? Just walk into your nearest hospital and ask any staff person why they’re lying to the public. Be prepared for a punch in the nose.

I blame our lame duck president and his howling sheep for the canceling of all the fun events we always enjoy out here in Western Mass. I blame you for screwing up my daughter’s wedding, and I blame you for not being able to go home for Thanksgiving.

Suck it up and put the damn mask on, already. It really is the least you can do.
