    =>I personally wear a mask in public and at work when I step out of my office, even though it is really is annoying and gets hot.

    I take my shoes off when I get home so as to not track in Rona (I read months ago that Rona is not immune to gravity and those falls to floors and gets on shoes).

    I carry wipes with me and wipe down all doorknobs, elevator buttons, and toilet seats after I finish taking a crap.

    I eat outside in restaurants. Only ate inside once, this past Tuesday, as it was a paralegals last day - retiring at 17 years of service - and we could not find outide seating for our group. I was not comfortable however.

    I do it all because I do not want to get sick or infect others. I try to do what I can to be a good citizen. I think it is the right thing to do.

    That said, I try not talk down to others who choose not to wear masks, go to restaurants/bars and eat inside, or have house parties. It is their choice. I have so many flaws and vices that I cannot throw stones.

    ******

    The problem is Rona has been politicized. Some on the left and the media has greatly overhyped it. Some on the right and liberty folk have greatly downplayed it as a great hoax. Unlike 9/11 and the moon landing, Rona really happened!

    The snobbery on both sides of it is silly and hypocritical.

    It should not be a political football. These two statements are both true:

    1) It is disease that is only slightly more deadly than the flu and not really deadly at all for anyone young without pre-existing conditions. (I know, I know, I am right wing asshole who wants to kill gramma for saying it)

    2) BUT, it is an extremely contagious disease without a vaccine which has the potential to levy havoc on the health care system and can kill gramma. It should be treated seriously like such. (I know, I know, I am a left wing libtard sheeple who wants to destroy the economy for saying it)

    Too bad that someone's political affiliation dictates they will believe only one of those 2 truths and never both.

    Neither USC nor UCLA will hold in-person classes this fall, except for classes where it's absolutely necessary (e.g., labs, studios/performance classes, or clinical health courses).

    Is there anyone on here that refuses to wear a mask? I’d love to hear the reasoning behind it. I’m genuinely curious.

    Is that it are we going after more
    I don't know the numbers, but it feels like we have roughly 3-5 ships left. Terran Hearn (DE/OLB) and Giovanni Scales (DB) seem like two guys towards to the top of the board. Scales just de-committed from WMU and would be a great addition at Safety. Other than that, it seems like we'll use 1 on a kicker. Maybe a QB too, just to make greggie uncomfortable. I'm a little surprised interior DL hasn't been as big of a priority. Maybe the staff plans to move some guys around, but we seem a little light in that department. Losing out on Drew Hughes to Ball state is a bummer. We'll see, still a lot of time left in this cycle.
