I’ve been ill for the last couple of weeks, nothing terribly serious, but I’ve been under the weather enough it’s affected my work and other parts of my life.

Any other time I would have simply gone to my doctor, had him diagnose me with one is probably a bacterial throat infection, and got some antibiotics and get better relatively quickly.

And I wasn’t able to do that, because doctors are understandably trying not to have patients come into their offices. And the ER is not safe.

My little illness wasn’t a big deal, but compound that by probably hundreds of thousands of people in my shoes. Not to even mention the actual sufferers of covid-19.

You have to ask yourself what these protesters are fighting for.

I don’t get it.
