I know this isn’t ultimately what your piece is about, but my God … those green bracelets.

They represent everything that has gone mad in our society with respect to this pandemic. They represent the refusal of some people to admit that their own choices don’t just potentially endanger them, but everyone else at the same time.

It’s just too maddening sometimes.

Anyway, now that I have that off my chest, thanks for writing about this and I wish you and your family well.

Perhaps, with an effective vaccine, by this time next year your boys will be back in school and all of this madness will begin to fade into distant memory.
