Irony or what?

I find it interesting that not long ago this......


......was a problem for many. It was considered a threat to safety and many even tried  (or did) legislate against it. But now, this...........


......is considered the best way to keep everyone safe and many have tried (and did) legislate to mandate compliance.


Now I'm all for mask-wearing, but let's face it. There is not much difference between the anonymity fostered by one than the other, yet one is considered admirable by most (while others consider it an affront to their personal freedom) and the other is evil. How is a person behind one less dangerous than someone in the other? Seems like there's a little discrimination and a lot of hypocrisy going on here.

As for those opposed to mandated mask-wearing, I have a few questions:

Do you find red lights an imposition on your freedom of movement?
Do you smoke in non-smoking areas?
Do you give your toddlers plastic bags to play with in defiance of those who dare to tell you not to?

If you think safety restrictions are an affront to freedom, please feel free to defy warnings.....but kindly choose those which don't affect others. In fact why not have a rally for those who feel as you do and hold it atop a high voltage tower where everyone can show off their independence by zip-lining from one tower to the next? (And use a wet copper harness. )

    Oh, and on the mask front: Last week, I went to the DMV to renew my DL (2 weeks late!) When it was picture time, I was told to remove my mask. It (the DL) should be arriving soon.
