Wherever you go, be sure to travel in large groups of strangers. Mass Transit - Mass Infection. Now that's smart government hard at work. And let's get into those "essential" businesses such as cardrooms, liquor stores, strip clubs and places of worship. Those beaches and beach businesses are also "essential." Disneyland is dragging its feet. So is Great America. Get those essential business open and filled with people from all around the world. Schools. Open them yesterday. Save your masks for Halloween - just in you live that long.
