When Patty and I were in Clearwater Beach, our waitress at our first evening meal had recently moved from Minnesota to Florida because everything was closed in MN. She couldn't work. I hope Florida follows suit soon too.

Houston's mayor is bitching about this right now at a press conference.

Cry harder, Sly!

So why doesn't he grab his balls and mandate a city rule? He's the mayor. You want a mask rule, then do it. This passive aggressive crap that's been going on is so lame. Just politicians passing the bagel. At least have the courage to do what you think is right instead of the whole "woe is me" shit. Jeez I'm hating almost all politicians at this point. No character, no honor and no backbone.

Oregon has one of the lowest infection rates in the nation right now, but still has a mask mandate, and public schools are still closed.

He already said he's mandating masks on city property, and by city employees, but I don't see what enforcement mechanism he has to make people do it. I guess he can administratively punish the CoH employees, but I don't see that he can do anything about plain ol' citizens on City of Houston property. Maybe he can trespass them? I doubt HPD is interested in doing that, everyone hates them already.

OK. At least he is standing by his beliefs. I hope that the people of Houston, including the city workers, can decide whether or not this was helpful.

The majority of the people in the City of Houston honestly worship a dead felon who died of a drug overdose. They're really not the best decision makers. Up until recently, the surrounding Harris County used to have enough sane voters to keep the county safe from liberal insanity. Sadly, I don't see Harris County ever recovering from that.

I really hope this goes well for Texas and sets the ball rolling for sanity across North America.

We've been locked down for a year now with mask mandates in place and it's enough already.

Unfortunately I do not see an end to the BS here. Cases are falling steadily yet somehow they are predicting doom and gloom and an astronomical increase in cases in the next few weeks, and are using that to keep us locked down.

We have 6 color-coded 'stages' of re-opening and even the least restrictive, Green, still requires social distancing, masks in public, and limits on social gatherings etc.

Seems like there is no plan for an END to this, just maybe some meager relaxing of the bullshit rules.

Good for him. I also heard that Alabama will have full attendance at their football games this year.

There is guy Morgan Crosby who is in sales at Finch Chev. in London Ontario. He has videos on Youtube about the C8. He has one. In his videos I have never seen anybody with a mask on. He would be with his Corvette tech. and nobody is wearing a mask.
