I just visited Goodwill in Botetourt County a bit ago, since this is apparently the first day it has been opened in a couple of months and noticed what is becoming an increasing phenomenon: people totally ignoring signs that they are not welcome inside businesses without wearing masks. About half the patrons in GWLtd were wearing masks.
There is a simple cure for that, one that doesn’t involve violence. My pal Robert Stutes, a United Methodist Church minister in Roanoke, tells me this: “The new specs for re-opening Methodist churches require face coverings, and if someone refuses to put one on, and if that person refuses to leave, we are told to shut it down and send everyone home.”
Oh, would that ever result in some serious peer pressure?!?
