Re: “Vermont's Coronavirus Case Count Reaches 461

Go ahead and make as many masks as you can. Right now most do-gooders who are making masks are donating them to essential workers and hospitals (excellent causes). There isn't really anyone getting them to regular citizens who might not even have sewing supplies let alone the basic skills to fashion a functioning mask. Is wearing a shoddily made mask crafted by some hack really that much better than observing every other mandate (not going out, six plus feet of space, washing hands, etc.)?

On an aside, some masks I've seen actually do more harm than good (scarves, and other devices that are laborious to take off so as to spread the virus more in the process of removing them). Masks are not supposed to be handled too much.

Lastly, some people are truly assholes and are not doing their part to practice safety. Others are trying to keep up with Governor Scott's almost whimsical mandates as quickly as possible. The mandate to start wearing masks should have been made with a list of places to get them.

Paul, masks are not easy to come by for the general public. Yes. We can make them but even that is not so simple for many.

Re: “Pandemic Grounds Some Commercial Flights but F-35s Continue to Prowl Skies

I for one am glad the F35’s are patrolling Lake Champlain for Champ and the local parks for gatherings of more than 5.

Re: “Vermont to Allow Firearm Sales During Outbreak

I mean if anyone gets within six feet of you it is fair game to open fire. It’s comforting to know one can load up at the curb while sitting in a running vehicle.

Re: “Pranksters Plaster Porn on Senate Ag Committee Zoom Session

Free pornhub and no school. It was bound to happen.

Re: “Weinberger Courts Donors to Boost United Way Relief Fund

It dawns on me now that Weinberger’s isolation bubble has nothing to do with the coronavirus.
