2. I'm heading out, tomorrow, for my virst errand run since the new mandate

First to Aldi and then to Big Lots, Bed, Bath and Beyond, before my discount coupons expire.

Most of the people I've seen have been wearing masks. Sometimes not exactly correctly, but at least they make an effort.

9. On my trip to Kroger yesterday...

you could only enter in one door. There were two women standing there monitoring people. One of them had her mask under her nose. Throughout the store there were several with their masks under their noses. Having it under your nose isn't acceptable.

Some people are just ignoramuses.

10. I didn't make it to Kroger but everyone at Aldi was wearing a mask

Nobody at the door was monitoring. The check out clerk said the company just gave them all new masks that match their uniforms.

Also stopped at Home Depot to replenish my yard waste bags. Everyone that I encountered was wearing a mask.

I decided to buy a packet of paper masks. I want to see if they are more comfortable than cloth masks, when it's in the 90's.

the Old Boys’ Network here in Ohio, too. Your leadership in Michigan is an inspiration.

7. Here in Hillsdale County Went out this afternoon

Dollar Tree about 90%. However local coffee shop probably 30%. I'm ready to turn in businesses that won't make an effort to keep customers safe. We have some real asshole locals politicians who encourage this behavior.

8. Also from Michigan My thoughts follow

In the early 1930s our federal government under the guidance of FDR began working on the Tennessee Valley Authority. This was an expansive effort designed to bring electricity and modernize the mountainous regions of Tennessee and surrounding states. At that time many inhabitants of the area were opposed to this. “Don’t need or want no gubmint folks telling us how to live.” Even indoor plumbing was opposed with the good people suggesting “Even a dog knows not to mess where he sleeps”. This action slowed the project but it was completed and the good people eventually accepted their better lifestyles.
Later in the 40s or 50s fluoride was being introduced to drinking water, at least it was in Michigan. Again, we had similar protests. “Fluoride is poison, the government is going to poison our children.” Fluoride was being added to improve dental health. This too, had some struggles in some if not all, areas of Michigan. But eventually it was accepted and now we are all drinking fluoridated water and have better teeth.
Today there is much fuss about wearing masks to avoid spreading the Covid-19 virus. It has become a political football. Can’t we all just work together to eliminate this virus, there are many other political things we can argue about. This can be life ending for many, is it really a debatable issue?
