Went to Maynard's today in very red southwest Michigan and 99% of the customers wore a mask

I was pleasantly surprised. It will eventually become the new normal like wearing a seat belt. People screamed from the hills when those laws started. But now a very high percentage of people put on their seat belt without even thinking about it.

And really wearing a mask follows the same argument as wearing a seat belt. It's a safety precaution. It's really that simple.

1. Looks Like The "Dying Thing" Gets Folks' Attention

Despite the "the death count is exaggerated" rhetoric, people are afraid.
A modicum of fear is a positive.
Panic, bad! But due caution based on a bit of fear is good.
It's why we don't run into traffic.
That fear of getting hit, makes take pause and mitigate our risks.
That's all this is.
It has NOTHING to do with freedom or rights.

2. Regional differences.

People in MI take this virus more seriously than those down South, it seems.

3. Is not Menard's still selling Face masks

at the door. Seems to me that was another way for Johnny to make a buck of his suckers.
