Outrage is warranted. But outrage unaccompanied by analysis is a danger in itself.

I keep seeing arrangements where people seated back-to-back are much closer than 6 ft...

Makes me nervous.

My sister is on a tear about the NJ Governor. He had set the date for indoor dining today, but on Monday rescinded it.

He and his wife had gone to an outdoor restaurant, but with much canvas and tarps that make it look like he is indoors (and probably is not as good as open air, really). Someone posted on social media and it blew up. Indoor Gov dinner?

Fortunately, sis didn't buy any food..she figured she could do that last minute as she was thinking this might happen. So she is saved from a full freezer/storeroom of thousands of dollars of food..Though she said she did go to get supplies for her take out and found the shelves bare...There will be many restaurants in NJ taking another hit on food losses..

"For it is not light
that is needed, but fire; it is not the gentle shower, but thunder. We need the storm, the
whirlwind, and the earthquake. The feeling of the nation must be quickened; the
conscience of the nation must be roused; the propriety of the nation must be startled; the
hypocrisy of the nation must be exposed; and its crimes against God and man must be
proclaimed and denounced." Frederick Douglass 1852

I went to a patio here a couple weeks ago and the tables were very well spaced. At no point - even if you got up from the table, would you need to be within 6 feet of someone at another table. Our public health unit has to inspect restaurants and see their seating plan before they can open, so that’s definitely helping.
