To mask, or not to mask

Monday, July 20, 2020

I don't profess to know how Shakespeare's Hamlet felt about wearing a face covering in public, but in gratitude to Walmart and Walgreen's, among others, I offer this spinoff on a famous soliloquy: To mask, or not to mask, that is the question: Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer the sneers and looks of outrageous disdain, Or to take offense against a request to think of others, and by ignorance and pride refuse compliance with indignation. Mask up, Buttercup! It is a slight inconvenience, and it could prevent needless suffering and hardship.
