  1. I’ve got to share this. 🙂 On Britain’s Independent … for the past *5* weeks now? … I’ve been arguing for everyone there to facemask … since Norway does anything Britain does … and the British finally seem to be coming around. And today appears the article “Coronavirus: Advising public to wear masks on a voluntary basis would be ‘common sense’, says expert. ‘If they are coughing and spluttering then it makes complete sense to wear masks in order to protect other people'”

    My comment, underneath: 🙂

    What?? A British “expert” finally arguing FOR *common sense* … and everyone facemasking?? The world turned upside down! (Tune played, Yorktown Virginia, October 19, 1781.) But finally surrendering to common sense isn’t so bad.

    But his common sense is too tempered. Properly handled, a homemade mask *can* protect the wearer a little … which in some cases might be decisive … although their real value is keeping the infection from getting out of an infected person or the FAR many more who don’t yet realize they’re infected, of course.

    The bumbling Tory government and its “medical experts” ignored Cambridge’s own 2013 endorsement of homemade masks – however reluctant – and there are lots of good plans out there for making your own.

    Locked-down grandmothers might want to sew lots of re-usable/washable ones for their families … for their own survival.

    Come to think of it, our American patriot Thomas Paine had something to say about … Common Sense. 🙂

    Common Sense was Paine’s little pamphlet which convinced a critical majority of Americans that war/revolution was the only recourse left in dealing with the arrogant British.

    Hearts and minds. 🙂
