Dead people are breathing?   
Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

I thought I was responding to teal with teal.

Is anyone following the same rules that Santa Cruz County put out and masking inside your own home when you have guests over?  How does this get reasonably enforced? Are neighbors calling the mask police on each other? Better not give Newsom any ideas.

Masks must be worn in private settings, including your home, when non-household members are present.

This feeds into the right wing paranoia of government overreach and suddenly doesn't make them look all that paranoid if your behavior inside your own house is being policed.

Behavior inside your own home shouldn't be subject to law?

Who knew the same folks who wanted to dismantle police force would come up with a policy a few months later that would require imbedding a cop in every home and apartment?

Yeah ... what kind of state would pass a law encouraging residents to go after other residents who are trying to make health-care decisions about their own bodies?

I've followed this doc for a while on Youtube. 

TL;DR: Large study on masks.  Cloth/Surgical masks do nothing.  N95s might have a tiny benefit.

I disagree with him at the end, suggesting all the pro-mask people "apologize."   

The theory was that masks would help.  That .. made sense.  Nothing to apologize for, it was the best thought out there at the time. 

Looks like now science has advanced and they it has low efficacy, and we're totally focked for the next airborne disease.  #arbys
