    Every state has different regulations, especially to deem an establishment a restaurant or bar. That's why there are lawmakers and lawyers.

    Feel awful for them. Most are sole proprietors and family owned.

Many high school football players and their folks have been picketing both the St Louis County Courthouse and his home. They want their football back. Some of the surrounding counties allow it, so now some of the local teams are going to the football stadiums in the next county to play.

    People are getting fed up with it. One of SR's docs told him this thing is "BS". I know people are dying, but they're taking it too far and making a literal political football out of it.

    I am waiting to see what the total deaths from all causes looks like and how it compares to 2019 and 2018. I'm betting there will be little or no difference, which will mean that virtually everyone who died of COVID19 would likely have died anyway due to comorbidities. It will be mighty hard for the "experts" to explain why total deaths did not increase in 2020, a "pandemic" year.

    We're having a similar conundrum locally. Which is naturally all about politics. The city high schools cannot play high school football because their the school district demand all 100% online learning. Which contradicts the governor's edict.

    Meanwhile, suburban and rural high schools continue to play. Defies common sense and logic. Which is sadly fitting in this weird era.

    fixed your last sentence for accuracy...

    Washington Post admits school openings have not caused widespread outbreaks

    It was one of the most consequential policy debates of our time. Do we send our kids out to school in middle of an epidemic that poses no meaningful risk to children and younger people? The teachers' unions fought tooth and nail to get many states to keep their schools closed. They even held mock funerals to protest the openings. So, over a month into the opening of schools in the areas where they failed to keep them closed, did we experience mass funerals?

    Feared coronavirus outbreaks in schools yet to arrive, early data shows," read a recent title from the Washington Post. Kudos for their willingness to return to the issue rather than dropping it and moving on to the next panic-inducing prediction like a drive-by shooting. In the long and thorough article, the authors state the obvious: "Public health experts have found little evidence that the virus is spreading inside [school] buildings, and the rates of infection are far below what is found in the surrounding communities."
