    I love this idea. Who sets the new rules?

    There’s no sharp reduction in risk coming around the corner, so it doesn’t make sense to think in terms of temporary measures and “back to normal” in the future. The question is what should normal be forever.

    Unmasked cops shove a man out of a New York subway station for asking them to wear a mask. Masks are required in NYC for public transit.

    And he's still going to get almost half his salary sitting at home since he's eligible for road games. Here's Adam Silver's take:

    And here's Charles Barkley's take:

    Yeah, would give me pause. My commitment to personal moral/superstition/ obstinate/religious objection to a beneficial health practice would cave about six zeros before that number. Which raises the question: How can any athlete generate enough incremental income to warrant such astronomical salaries?

    Miami private school says students who get COVID vaccine must stay home for 30 days (yahoo.com)

    The controversial Miami private school that garnered attention in April after announcing that teachers and staff who chose to get vaccinated for COVID-19 could not interact with students and would run the risk of losing their job has now discouraged parents from getting their children vaccinated.
    this one belongs in the "Descent Into The Middle Ages" thread!

    This is on them, not the school that employs them. Taking a stand against a vaccine that medical experts say has saved untold thousands of lives—that’s a hell of a place to draw a line, a hell of a manner in which to throw away a high-paying job.

    And a hell of a way to jeopardize the season for those who remain. Coaches love throwing around words like “commitment” and “buy-in” and “alignment,” but these guys weren’t willing to do what they knew they had to do when the proclamation was made Aug. 9—get vaccinated. (Rolovich tried to get a religious exemption to the mandate, but that apparently was rejected.) The players and remaining staff will be left behind trying to make it work.

    That wouldn't be surprising at all....narcissists in football coaches are not rare.
