Take Mary Schmich's quiz: Are you ready to return to normal?

I took it and got a perfect score. I returned to normal long ago.

This will sound like more crowing about the open-life in Florida, but thanks to Gov. Ron DeSantis’ realistic, science-based approach to fighting COVID-19 it’s real.

These are the questions in her quiz that I answered “already done it”:

  • Eat indoors at a restaurant
  • Eat outdoors at a restaurant
  • Sit indoors at a bar
  • Return to the public pool
  • Go to an indoor concert
  • Have friends over for dinner inside
  • Go to a shopping mall
  • Take a road trip
  • Hang out on a crowded beach
  • Get your teeth cleaned
  • Have your routine doctor’s checkups
  • Allow service workers into the house
  • Attend a religious service or yoga class indoors
  • Hug a friend
  • Hug a stranger
  • Shake someone’s hand

Some questions I answered “not applicable.” But there’s not one listed activity that I haven’t already done that I would hesitate or refuse to do.

Florida has not turned into a catastrophe. While parents and students have been shafted by the teachers union in Chicago, schools have been open since last year–without the kind of outbreak that left-wing partisans have predicted.

My apologies for bringing this up. My sympathies go to those who have been virtually imprisoned and damaged by unwarranted restrictions.

  • Don’t drink, so don’t sit at bars. Kind of cold in Chicago to find a crowded beach. What I would be hesitant about, is traveling overseas. And while I don’t mind planes, there is a lack of social distancing in airport terminals and boarding areas. All the rest I’ve done for months, hey I know some who still don’t leave their houses.

  • I notice that today infections are going up in Duval County, Florida, while they are going down in Cook County. And the Covid death rate in Duval County is half again higher than Cook.

    Right, one week proves your case. Here's the real measure: deaths per capita. Illinois: 190; Florida; 162
    https://www.statista.com/statistics/1109011/coronavirus-covid19-death-rates-us-by-state/ If Florida is so screwed up, should its death rate be higher than Illinois' where oncalled-for restrictions have been imposed.

  • The solution for the Safetyists is to never go back to pre-Covid living because there will always be a variant. Get used to it: Covid is endemic in the world population and is not going to go away no matter how stringent the lockdowns and mitigations and no matter how many vaccines and boosters are produced. That the Safetyists, who most directly correlate to Leftists, might indeed just stay home forever and leave the sane population alone, could be the only good outcome from this disease.

  • In reply to Richard Davis:

    Richard, repeat after me: Covid-19 is a disease and not a political opponent.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    Covid has been weaponized by the Democrats/Left. No need to repeat after me.
