    That is certainly an option worth considering.

    The only one I’ve been to was in Cozumel. I’ll grant you that it was a hot day, but our teenage boys declared “one block of Mexico looks just like the next.” The revolt was on! My wife had heard the water/ice at Carlos and Charlie’s was safe and they had A/C , so we dropped in on the way back to the docks and she ordered a Daiquiri. It came in a giant fishbowl! Then she got another....and she rarely drinks any alcohol. On the way back to the ship she heard “braid your hair, pretty lady?” We’ll never know if that epic headache was the alcohol, the wife being “tenda headed” or some combination. They all went back to the ship, I sat at Senor Frogs until departure time. I was technically in Cozumel, and the service was a little too good, if you know what I mean. Everyone was pissy at some point that day, but now it’s a memory we all laugh at.

    Apparently autocorrect will change Senor Frogs to Senior Frogs. Although the latter would be a great idea for some of those huge retirement communities in Florida and Arizona.

    I have no issue wearing the mask as some would say it's a marked improvement in my overall appearance. Wear the damn mask people. My wife, son (15) and I got a test this morning. I have to have a procedure done next week and my son plays for St. X. They just had a kid test positive. I think we'll all be negative but that's why you get the test. It's not especially fun but it's not painful. Can't imagine having to do it all the time tho like front line folks. Wear the mask!

    It seems like a pretty easy way to slow the spread of this thing so that we can all get back to living normal lives. I'm not sure why it's become such a divisive issue.

You apparently would give a pass to the covid effects of the reopenings you mention, so consistency demands that you also give a pass to the protest effects. Your hypocrisy is stunning.
    You miss the point. Those on the right aren't condemning the protests for corona reasons. We are just miffed, once again, how the media and the left loudly complain about reopening businesses and the Trump rally, but then say, very little, if anything, about these protests spreading corona. As always, there's no standard like a double standard.

    Because we lack national leadership:

    See post 2299. The MSM did indeed talk about the covid dangers associated with the protests.

    Would you say the protests (which were much more widespread) received more or less scrutiny than Trump's lone rally in regards to spreading Covid?

    In terms of sheer numbers, the protests created 1000x the risk of covid spreading than Trump,s one rally did. In a fair media, the protesters/rioters should have been vilified nationally for being socially irresponsible while we're in the jaws of a pandemic. That certainly didn't happen
