Overcounting

Writes Ken Harwood:

An acquaintance just told me about a physician friend, with many years in the profession, who got fired, directly by and in the office of, his employer’s CEO, for violating corporate policy by not assigning  the virus as the official cause, which the MD knew it wasn’t, of [whatever the medical issue was].

What To Do When the Woke Enemy Starts Filming You With His iPhone

Seeing the future

Writes Mark Higdon:

This evening, I received a haircut from my devoted and talented daughter (mother of four of my grandchildren). It took a while, but the results were crackerjack. The company was nonpareil.

I had not had a haircut since the last time I visited my regular professional barber back in February. Like others in her profession, she was out of work by state decree for at least a couple of months. When our state’s procurator allowed barbershops to reopen, I quickly learned that there were lots of barriers, limitations, socialist distancing et al. nonsense involved in re-accessing services. I put off making an appointment in the hope of such things relaxing. Instead, mandatory masks were added to the mix.

I have gone to this young woman (about my daughter’s age) for many years. The appointments were enjoyable, without exception. We always inquired and knew about each other’s families. When I went back to her after a long battle with cancer, her welcome was so touchingly warm and heartfelt. It hurts me to now be part of the reason for her reduced income. However, I have my own substantial concerns in that category.

Going to the barber shop used to be like going to church in this sense: you could leave the world outside and be insulated from it inside. No more, in both venues.

I miss my barber. I will not go back to her shop–as I will not go back to church–until the world is once again kept at bay from both locations. Which may be never.

The future that I see from this microcosm is basically DIY. Among other things:

  • Kitchen stool haircuts.
  • Eating in (who wants to eat out and be served, while masked, by masked wait staff? Bar talk? Fuggeddaboudit.).
  • Cable, Netflix et al. (indoor theaters are dead-dead-dead!).
  • Shopping, as rarely as possible. “No-contact” deliveries-deliveries-deliveries.
  • Neighbors, mostly gone. Relatives, if you can keep them.
  • Vacations diminishingly affordable or accessible. (Flying? Fuggeddaboudit. Road trip? Maybe. Staycations? The new, lame normal.)
  • Being your own primary physician.
  • Being your own confessor, unless you prefer being policed at socialist distancing by floor stickers and a security guard.
  • Et cetera, et cetera and so forth.

Our unfolding New World is depressing and fearsome: the antithesis of brave. In the words of the dying Jimmy Malone, in The Untouchables: “What are you prepared to do?”

Protests vs churches

Writes Carlisle Branch:

The churches should protest and force the issue.
They should march to the court house, present their grievances, and hold an open air church service.
