    I think Texas is being a little premature, but not much. In a month this will be most states. In two months it will be all of them.

    To be truthful, I think that mask mandates will be around long past when they need to be in Deep Blue states. People are shaken. I think it will feel wrong to them to un-mask, especially because it will feel like giving in to “Drumpf.”

    Any time there is a one-day blip in the “numbers,” people are going to worry. And I mean for the next several years.

    This is just what winning looks like.

    You can spend the next month arguing about whether Texas and other red states did it too soon, but by the time the data starts to take shape, purple states will be doing it too.

    I have little use for WAR, but I’m glad we have the Bill James of Covidmetrics on our side.

    I hope you are right. But look at our own Board here. People are going to be very reluctant to make that final leap, and masks have become quite a symbol.

    Texas has the lowest per capita vaccination rate of any state.

    I imagine I will imitate my elderly Chinese neighbors and wear a mask in public in the winter months if only to mitigate the risks of colds and the flu.

    It is a good idea. What is the harm? There is no harm.
