And where I live, people aren’t just stupid about masks they’re rebellious.

Here, masks and social distancing are politics. Here, people have bought into Trump’s lies and misinformation about covid-19.

I can walk into my village store and draw looks of scorn for wearing a mask.

What an insane world we live in.
