When did we completely stop believing our own eyes and ears and 100% subscribe to reality TV’s version of reality?

Well, Doc, it looks like the Europeans are believing “TV’s version of reality” because I just got an email that my flight to Italy in August is temporarily suspended because:

“passengers from any country with unacceptable rates of coronavirus infection are not currently allowed to travel in certain states of the European Union. The current ban is until July 1 but could extend further depending on circumstances.”

I’m an old man, Doc. I love my trips to Italy. The Palio was to be held in August. The countryside in Tuscany is beautiful in late summer.

I thought you said this was a “nothing burger” and all would be fine. Guess not.

SLO County is getting kinda bad with COVID, but the situation down in SB County is getting spooky exponential, big time. I read that over Dad’s Day weekend there were 217 new cases in SB County, most of them in SM. So, where’s the Trib, and KSBY, and other media reporting? Maybe what I read was wrong. If SM gets really bad, they’re gonna have to set up roadblocks on Hwys 101 and 1 to keep it out of SLO. It’s starting to feel like Contagion the movie!

How about this, the Lompoc prison population had 9/10 infection rate per populous. Who gets paid 200k a year to deal with that shiat show?

So it wasn’t the unwashed masses enjoying the beach , it WAS the trendy, ill informed , bored , millennial sheeple protesting … just dumb . Where’s the outrage ?

I see Baby Boomers, nor a day older though; without mask as much as Millenials, x ,y and zenu. The ww2 era kids get Covids deadlines via science publications, not nationalism or political or spiritual, truly. Just science.

Did you read the article? It clearly says the county has linked it to; old folks homes, a graduation party, and several family gatherings.

You have to get real creative to read in protesters with that bunch. Not there.

Both the unwashed masses and the trendy elites caught a break I guess.

The ill informed sheep-el seems to be you. Bahhh.

people need to respect one another & wear masks, wash hands, and social distance. This virus won’t go away –

fish i am with you, but you are on the wrong place here. this is the place where people do not care, the wanabe patriots who want to make America great for themself, forget everybody else.

I have to agree with both of you. Masks seem to make a difference, although concrete scientific evidence is probably a year or two away and the mixed messages from the federal government are totally ridiculous (Trump: if you’re wearing a mask you are against me even though I saw one of his rally goers in Tulsa wearing a Trump20 red, white and blue mask, which is great).

In countries like S. Korea and Japan where the virus is under control citizens have adopted masks as a way of life. Why can’t we? I have been wearing a mask in public since March and find it no more inconvenient than putting on my hat to cover my bald head.

And, while I’m not much for ascribing significance to anecdotal evidence it seems that two hair stylists in Missouri exposed over 100 people to the virus because they were both asymptomatic after their salon opened. Luckily, they were wearing masks and taking all precautions. No positives resulted from those interactions which strikes me as a solid reminder to WEAR A MASK when in public.
