Dr. Leana Wen, columnist for the Washington Post, has thoughts about Philly’s recent decision to reinstate indoor mask mandates:
Of course, she knows the reasons why, she’s just too chickenshit to say them out loud, in front of other people. BUT WE LIKE HELPING!, so here are a few reasons:
- People can’t afford to lose a couple weeks of wages. Gotta pay the bills!
- Long COVID–you’re not crazy if you want to avoid it.
- Immunocompromised people matter. At least if you’re not an asshole.
- The new CDC metrics are lagging indicators based on hospital capacity.
I am sure the former public health commissioner of Baltimore knows these answers (by the way, in light of her recent remarks, how did everyone not die in Baltimore during her tenure?). This is like debating creationists who know how their bullshit will be shot down and just keep shoveling away.
Time for a blogger ethics panel.
