Orlando Sentinel’s Central Florida 100: POLITICS OF MASKS

, , Leave a comment

As we all witness Gov. Ron DeSantis stubbornly embrace politics over science, I am reminded of the Catholic Church during Galileo’s day which, despite clear and convincing evidence that the Earth circled the sun – not vice versa – nonetheless preferred to imprison Galileo rather than accept the inevitable truth. The science is overwhelming that masks reduce incidences of pandemic contagion; nonetheless, our governor, in the face of 10,000 new cases a day, is unwilling to accept the inevitable, side-step politics, and make masks mandatory, as the Retail Industry Leaders Association has implored, and more enlightened governors from some 23 states have ordered so far.
