The election isn’t even over, and when it is over, it will go down in history as one of the most divisive contests ever. And yet, as I predicted, Joe Biden is already claiming a ‘mandate for action’.
We saw this coming when we reported on Durham’s demand that people conceal their faces in public places. Hanover, another College town (Dartmouth), has passed a face mask mandate. People snitched on by triggered locals will get a stern talking too (and Hanover has plenty of those). Multiple offenders will get fined.
Mask wearing is not something that should be mandated. We’ve said that from early on, you decide what works for you, your circumstances. But the pressure (professional and Political) reached a head and over a matter of days, as major retailers announced mask mandates in their stores. Now, they are walking them back.
