    I'm STILL one of the only ones wearing a mask when I grocery shop. All the employees do, but old people... the most susceptible... quit wearing weeks ago. Dumbfounds me... people are selfish assholes.

    Every time the produce misters go off... I hope an idiot gets their wings. Fuck-em!

    I still maintain that wearing a mask while alone in one's car is like wearing a condom while alone in one's bed. Then again, it's always good to be prepared in case a naked woman falls out of the ceiling ...

    Curious how you think the average person would interpret the CDC announcing, "Masks can help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by reducing your chance of infection by more than 80 percent."

    I posit many people would read that and interpret it as wearing a mask gives one 80% protection against COVID.

    I never said you and Mike were average. I'll take a 40% chance on my side of the mask.

    I just want to say that I meant more that Mike and I and others here like you are wonks and we pay way, way closer attention to things than the average person does, not that it makes us better or whatever.

    Personally, I think a statement like that by the CDC is irresponsible because it very much makes it sound like masks are better odds than a Pfizer vaccine after 4 months or a J&J from day 1.

    Then again, I also think we should burn the CDC and FDA to the ground and totally rethink that area of government, so...

    Meanwhile in real time... my three non vaxer friends all canceled on Thanksgiving at my house this year... after talking about it for weeks and planning a day of good food, music and cards with five friends.

    One doesn't want to get into arguments... I get that... she's a lover not a fighter... my best friend (w/his wife) called at 2pm while we were expecting them to pull in the driveway like he was calling in sick to work. I stayed on the line long enough... but I'm sure his teenage daughter brought a bug home and cough cough cough.

    Me and my twisted sister had a great time anyway. She's left, I'm right... and we're both vax's and adhere to mask common sense. No arguments and we hugged a lot.

    Thanks for listening.

    No one listens to that shit anyway. Minds are made up with stupid arguments they had put in their heads by TV and AM radio and the internet on a phone.. They don't read. I hate to say that and sound pompous... but they don't read.

    There's a rule about wearing a mask alone in your own car?

    ;-)

    I try to explain to a lot of my students, because our focus is on reading, and 50% of CA's kids are way below grade level (my students, high school, 90% are reading at a 3rd-5th grade level), that part of the problem is with everything else out there, kids aren't reading the same amount.

    I had 20 channels, a 7-screen theater, music, and books. So a word like "posit," I just learned it by reading it in books over and over. Today, we have to teach context clues because they arent' reading enough to soak it up themselves.

    I don't know how to reverse this trend.

    It's just reading, that's it. My son went from not reading anything to reading a book a week when he turned 13. He instantly became a better student. I would tell him, and tell my daughters all the time, to just read anything.
