    Back in the day, say the 1930's, 1950's, if a family had an outbreak of a highly communicable disease, say measles or polio, the Health Department would go to their house and put up a sign declaring that house to be in quarantine. No one inside was allowed to go anywhere for two weeks or so, period. Not the barber, not a restaurant, nowhere. Groceries would be left at the front door so that they could eat. This was a normal part of protecting the community from disease. If someone broke quarantine and got caught, they caught hell for endangering their neighbors *from* their neighbors.

    This country has completely lost the idea that there are responsibilities which go along with freedom.

    The best part is how Boone deftly wink winks the theater of it all by telling the ump he feels bad for him for the bullshit calls.

    No fans at PGA Tour events for the rest of the season. U.S. Open and Masters will obviously make their own decisions since they are not under the PGA Tour umbrella.

    An entire year of not hearing “MASHED POTATOES!” Or “BABA BOOEY!” Or the O.G. “GET IN THE HOLE!”

    Good to see positive news in this world.

    Not playing team sports with fans present was as predictable as the sun rising and temperatures being colder in December than July.

    Not playing them at all and them rolling the dice on vaccine later in 2021? Equally predictable.
