Fark 'em.  If they want to be stupid, they can all die.  Just don't leave the state.

The real tragedy here is that fewer Florida men means less Florida Man.

Don't worry too much about Florida. You can write the whole thing off on your taxes. Trump did!

He lost money on those Russians, except for the Paul Manfort-Oleg Derpinksy scam. Derpinsky's ex-wife paid for that one!

Remember when this was all a New York problem and you could point and laugh?  Wasn't that great?  You were feeling so good.

If Florida man gets diluted by 2% due to a culling, he's still 98% Florida man.  Our headlines will survive just fine.

No subby, just Florida. As long as we can get them all to die off before Snowbird season, that is. Actually, even during Snowbird season. Those blue hairs won't survive the winter in that viral cesspool...

We just had a workman in our house for 2 hours.  My wife and I were amply masked. He was glaringly unmasked. Worse: he was a huge, heavy-set man who wheezed like a steam train. I tried to keep the rooms well-ventilated but he either misunderstood my intentions or was daring me about whatever it is anti-mask people imagine they're up to.

What a weird world we live in. Nobody stranger than people.

Weird. I had a cable guy in yesterday. Masked up, kept six feet distance, even had booties over his shoes, which is probably more about people's rugs and carpets than Covid. Meeting with architect and contractor tomorrow, they've asked for an outside meeting on the porch. They will also be masked up.

I just spent the week in florida, for the most part people did a pretty good job of distancing, groups were together but there where ample distances between the groups, protocols where in place at stores and restaurants,and were observed. Nobody I saw was being a jerk about it, This was Rosemary Beach, Florida at sunset. People look closer together than they are, because of the camera lens.

We're in the midst of a spasm of long-deferred house maintenance. My naive understanding is that these guys are healthier than the general population. Check back with me in a month.

Dude, that's your house.  Call his boss and/or give him the boot.

It helps to make sure they're not idiots before they get to your property.

Not that the neighboring states are doing a whole lot better but checkpoints at the state lines like Florida put up would be a nice touch during an evacuation!

No. You should have told him to put a mask on or hit the pavement.

Granted, we haven't reached the point where the guys doing the work are actually in the house, but the contractor is very concerned about Covid, which is actually making our time frame longer, since he's trying to avoid multiple crews (electric, plumbing, carpentry, etc.) working in the house on the same days. Hopefully his influence trickles down to the work crews.

Seriously, I'm not letting anyone I don't know in my house without a mask.

Having a guy fix the dryer on Thursday and they made a point to tell me he would be masked and gloved up and they asked if I could too and I told them it was not an issue.

Wait. We're asking people, not only from Florida, but Dade County, to behave? As if those people are actually capable of it?

I mean it's no Volusia or Lee or Polk County.

I think it was Stephen Miller who described this plank of the Republican party platform.

IIRC, he was in high school and made some shiatty remark about janitors and how it was okay for him to make messes throughout the school because janitors were being paid to clean up after him.

This is no different than the Nazi Plague Karens who believe they can spread their plague everywhere because nurses and grave diggers get paid to clean up after them.
