I asked about the safety of protests, about a lack of social distancing and an additional lack of masks. Graduations, movies, church, baseball games, school, college, beaches, Disneyland, full-capacity restaurants, political rallies, pub crawling… all of these are public gathering health risks disallowed by authority order.

None of this is anything not already lamented. What’s lamentable now is how quickly cavalier things get as we bounce from one righteous cause to the next. Impeachment. COVID-19. (murder hornets). Protests.

Navigating 2020 is dizzying; we’re only halfway through the year; and, the POTUS election is in November.

Also, I doubt a headcount was taken to get the exact metric 98%, unless there were 10 people and 9.8 people were wearing masks.
