    Editor,

    A small bit of real news for Rory Paxman: Oh my, non-mask wearers may be scrutinized or even given the fisheye. Oh, the horror!

    In the meantime, people around the country are being assaulted and even shot and some have been killed for simply asking others to wear masks. Teens working in fast food don’t deserve to be shot for not having dining rooms open.

    It’s not the believers in science, or the mask wearers who are the problem, sir.
