New Ohio Covid restrictions prohibit STANDING at social gatherings and how did any of this become normal?

Nov 12th

We shouldn't take this sitting down!

Unfortunately, we are now required to.

Oh, and no fun. That's also illegal.

Imagine it's a year ago, and someone told you, "Hey, did you hear about the new order prohibiting dancing?" You'd be looking over your shoulder for Kevin Bacon.

Do you have a feeling we are about to get scolded? I have a feeling we are about to get scolded.

It's not that the governor is angry with us, it's just that he'sā€¦ disappointed.

"Despite this order, we have seen rampant spread of the virus as a result of banquets, wedding receptions, and social gatherings following funerals."

Banquets, wedding receptions, and social gatherings following funerals.

Grieve alone, subjects!

"We have seen great tragedy associated with such events. It's not the ceremonies causing the problem. It's the party afterward."

And so parties are banned.

Let's be clear here, the pandemic is real. It is potentially deadly to a subset of the population that is easily defined and isolated: The very elderly, the sick, and people with other pre-existing conditions such as respiratory and cardiac ailments and a few others like diabetes.

For the rest of us, Covid is about as dangerous, and for many much less dangerous, as the seasonal flu.

These two things can be true simultaneously:

  • Covid is real and potentially deadly.
  • Covid threatens specific, identifiable populations.

How do you deal with a pandemic that is deadly to specific, identifiable populations? You take special care to protect those populations.

You don't put out a house fire by flooding the entire block and you don't fight street crime with artillery barrages.

And yet lockdown fever is seeing a revival. Governors have been given permission by President-not-yet-elect Biden to do so.

And they can barely contain themselves.

Hey, how about everybody join the party!

Wait, not party, those are not permitted. How about everybody join the appropriately masked, socially distanced gathering.

I have elderly, sick, relatives. We take special care because of that, and extra special care in the two weeks leading up to any visits. We do that because we are not children. Why, we're full-grown adults, not only capable of reason but also the most knowledgeable people on the planet regarding our personal situation.

On the other hand, officials who have never met us should probably be the ones making the call.

By the way, those reservations you have for dinner next week? You might want to make other plans.

And buy a treadmill.
