The blog has been getting quite a bit of commentary on this issue, the CDC, assorted vaccine updates, masks for children, and more---but above all----Dr. Fauci tops the list when it comes to masks, stress and confusion.  This article from the New York Post sums it up concisely.  Read it at the link below.

On another note, in yesterday's forays throughout the village, many businesses and residents were joyfully un-masked............ and no one was being questioned about their personal health our knowledge.

This post is closed to all comments.  Further questions and comments must be referred to the media source(s) cited.  Good luck to us all whatever our masking decisions.


This is how confused New Yorkers are about masks. At Barnes & Noble Wednesday, no mask was required to browse the bookshelves, but on the other side of Union Square, the Strand bookstore had mandated masks for all shoppers. Practically everyone inside both stores was wearing a mask, anyway, despite CDC advice that you don’t need one, indoors or outdoors, if you’re vaccinated against COVID-19.

Considering that more than half of Manhattan has been fully vaccinated, something is very wrong with the way we are processing risk. The trust between public health experts and the public is broken and now no one knows what to believe.

We can blame one man above anyone for this parlous state of ­affairs: Saint Anthony Fauci, the coronavirus czar once hailed as the most trusted man in America for his leadership through the pandemic. He has flip-flopped on every piece of advice, never admits doubt and tells lies with ­brazen indifference.

But just as with Gov. Cuomo, Fauci’s halo has fallen off with a thud.

It was just on Tuesday that Fauci admitted it was not science but theater that kept him wearing a mask — even double masking — despite being fully vaccinated for ­almost five months.  


And don't miss the section from a brave Florida boy: 

A wonderfully brave boy of 10 in Florida did Fauci’s job last week when the kid articulated the feelings of the nation’s children to his school board.

Fourth-grade student John Provenzano said the masks were hot, gave him headaches, stuck to his face, and made him feel “claustrophobic” and anxious.

“All of this seems unfair, and it doesn’t make sense,” he said. “I miss seeing people’s faces. I miss the way things used to be. I’m scared they’ll never go back to normal.”

He spoke poignantly about feeling sad when his teacher did not recognize him without his mask.
