I am old enough to remember when the Fauci and the CDC said there was no reason for the general public to wear a mask. Masks were only for medical people. It was last spring, long enough ago that MSNBC watchers don't know it happened. The NYC Mayor chastised mask wearers and people avoiding the public celebrations in Chinatown, walking maskless in crowds as the CCP government and WHO squashed reports of COVID deaths in Wuhan. One day the record was flipped over to side B. Everyone had to wear a mask everywhere, including outside. Many State and local government petty tyrants locked everything down, demanded everyone stay isolated, wear a mask per CDC recommendations. This week the record was flipped over again. Masks are not needed. As Thomas St Thomas pointed out, this is a reminder of Animal Farm where the rules on the side of the barn were repainted late at night and the pigs in charge got the sheep to bleat a new tune. A week later the tune on Side A is cancelled, never existed. Or is it the B side that never existed? It is all political theater, folks. The ruling pigs are at it again. There is no reason to reread George Orwell's Animal Farm, as turning on mainstream TV news tells the same story. How did George Orwell know? #makeorwellfictionagain [Keith]

Unsafe Space SARS-CoV2 Fact Check Series #14 Q: Did population density affect the death rate on a country to country basis? A: No. One attempt at counterargument, and a consideration worthy of examination, is that population density affects the spread of the virus and masks therefore are a bigger risk reducer in high density areas. This does pass a first-look sniff test, so many people have jumped on it without evidence. It is often cited using only assumptions without attempting to find proof or provide any data. Now that we have a year of data to examine, let's take a look. This chart from Tom Woods compares population density against COVID-19 death rate. It uses people per square mile and deaths per million people, making total population and area irrelevant. In statistics this is called a scatter plot. It shows random data, zero correlation. Population density is not a factor on a per-country basis in COVID-19 death rates. I don't know why it didn't matter, but we can say population density didn't matter on a county scale. We can set aside the question on why there is no correlation here. This fact check is on the population density counter-argument itself. It turns out the assumption on population density making all the difference is wrong when viewed by countries. I don't have a chart by city but have no reason to assume it would be different. As it measures the same thing there is reason to suspect it would be the same. Take off your masks. They don't work. Get out and interact with people in public. The virus doesn't care about population density. [Keith]
