The White House nixed a plan in April to send every household masks

Wow, what a great idea this would have been. And the incompetent, corrupt, and dishonest clowns in the White House stopped it.

That is, surprisingly, an example of actual competency and coherence in policy. If that plan had not been 86ed, then 45’s 1600 would be shown to be in complete disarray.

While a discussion of masks is appropriate for QZ, this seems to focus more on the politics behind it, which makes it more of a political topic. Moving to P&E.

I thought about this in march when the north east shut down. send out masks through the post, for people who don’t have post have them at outreach services.

of course one would need to have a government that wears masks and advocates their use.
