Yes, of course.
“All men dream; but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act out their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.” - T.E. Lawrence

Visited a Home Depot and Binny's today and only saw one person without a mask. That was a kid, maybe 12, what I assume was his mother, who was wearing one. Maybe the kid has a medical issue? Otherwise, tough to figure what was going on there.

Marion county in Indiana just passed mandatory masks if in public buildings or when outside and unable to social distance.

I'm on the Nextdoor app for my neighborhood. Hoo boy. It's worse than Facebook

Never tried that. I like the idea promoting neighborhood security and such, but I imagine it could also turn neighbors into enemies pretty quickly when a hot-button issue comes up...

I do believe wearing a mask has helped me save money by spending less time shopping and impulse buying. I just go in to stores get what I need and get out.

Why can't we get more people to wear masks? Hmmm...


A Kansas county Republican Party chairman who owns a weekly newspaper apologized Sunday for a cartoon posted on the paper's Facebook page that equated the Democratic governor's coronavirus-inspired order for people to wear masks in public with the mass murder of Jews by the Nazis during the Holocaust.

Wear one 90% of the time when in public indoor spaces. The other 10% being times I forget it, or will be in for a matter of seconds while picking something up.

Outdoors I don't, mainly because I avoid anything that would make distancing difficult. It's easy enough to give a wide berth when out for a walk/hike/at the park.

While I wear it, I don't get upset if I encounter people not wearing one, unless they refuse to keep distance.

Can anyone explain to me the argument against masks?

And I'm not referring to government overreach/violation of rights.

I'm asking about the individual choice to not wear one.

From my POV, it simply boils down to an individual being extremely selfish. As the point of the mask is to protect the community at large. Society>self.

Other than a very small percentage who can't wear them due to physical or psychological reasons, it is pure selfishness.  Narcissism.

Why won't some people wear masks?

Tribalists are gonna tribe.

When leaders of the tribe prey upon the irrational anticipatory fears of the tribe, the tribe listens and responds accordingly.

This is the majority of non mask wearers above. The legit medical reasons people is a very small group. The other small group are selfish self absorbed people that don't want to be inconvenienced. It took years for most to wear seat belts etc...there are always a few late adjusters to change. But most in my opinion are the tribe.

Ohio GOP state lawmaker says "Never Get Tested!" and that he is against wearing masks because the face is the “image and likeness of God.”

Speaking of masks, make a donation, get a Marquette-logo mask, and they will also donate a mask to a Marquette student:

Is Marquette not providing masks for its students?  Almost every school that I know of is distributing one, if not multiple cloth masks for each student free of charge, and Marquette is out here soliciting donations for a product that costs a few dollars?

I'm sure that they will ensure all of their students are masked (or just not on campus), and don't think they're soliciting donations for masks, but for the huge budget shortfall they're projecting.

Masks are just a relevant (fun?) opportunity for community engagement and for those who can donate to do so.

I need to know if it has a nose wire. So if someone has one, let me know. I did not see it mentioned ( unless I missed it due to my glasses fogging up😀).

I've cut holes in the top hem of our fabric masks and installed picture hanging wire, then sewed the hole back up. Takes a few minutes, but it improves the mask.

My company makes nose wire.  We're shipping 1000s of pounds a month.  Walmart is one of our customers.

I have to believe this is the case. Essentially, a fund-raising opportunity that people can directly relate to.
