Last week, Orange County’s public health director resigned after her call for mandatory face masks prompted a death threat, a security detail and a poster of her with a Hitler mustache and swastikas. On Tuesday in Santa Ana, face mask supporters were pushed and mocked by foes who chanted, “Hey hey, ho ho, these masks have got to go.”

This, in a country with nearly 117,000 COVID-19 deaths and counting.

For all my followers: just a reminder that covid-19 hasn’t gone away just because the news has moved on to more interesting things. The civil unrest around the globe because of systemic racial inequality is worth standing up and speaking out over, but please don’t think for a second that the powers that be wouldn’t be thrilled to see a massive covid spike amongst the protestors. Be safe. Be smart. Remember that the Boogeyman you can’t see is more deadly than the one that you can.


please, please, please do not pretend this is close to over.
