Mask Up, America

Morgan nails it!


I admit I don’t understand why wearing a mask seems to have been politicized. (A recent study found that your political affiliation is the best predictor of whether you wear a mask, even more than your age or where you live.*)

I don’t get how it’s a threat to anyone’s constitutional freedoms. Is it more onerous than not being permitted to smoke inside a theater or restaurant?

If we, as a nation, refuse this tiny inconvenience to try to limit the spread of a virus that is killing our neighbors, how would we ever deal with real sacrifice, as our ancestors did during World War 2 and the Civil War?

My God, we are self-absorbed and selfish right now, aren’t we
