Not sad, but rather, SPIFFY.

It's nice to know at least one city seems not to want to murder people.

 Yo, New Orleanian here. The closures and lack of parades won't stop  people from going to grocery or convenience stores to get loaded on the streets. Mardis Gras is too big a part of our culture to be shut down just because the bars are closed.You may as well tell a bull to not charge a matador.

I'll be out there with my N95 mask.

It's like they suffered some sort of terrible natural disaster in living memory and have learned from it.

People really do applaud loss of control. Yes, I know they had to stop the "mass" public  attacks. The fear must be throttled and controlled.

I don't know who performed it, but I remember a quite plaintive version of that song, as if sadly praying for good times to come again. Can anybody remind me of the artist?

désolé.

Except when you are eating or drinking. As well as others eating and drinking.
And I'm sure post-drinking the best of decisions will be made. British pubs showed us that.

It can be both.  It's necessary, and I'm glad they're willing to do it, but it's still sad that they have to.  Nobody wants to, they just know things will just be infinitely worse if they don't.

I do know some nurses that have been vaccinated and are ready to party that are going to be disappointed...

If you've ever been in a church the day after Mardi Gras, toward the end of the service you see a building full of  people all marked with ashes on their foreheads.

It's very funeralistic, almost surreal.   There are not many images in a year like that -- death.  This is quite the year, because even that ritual will be different or distanced.

The Black Plague dropped off the calendar for a few  years in most places, or more accurately, the calendar went blank for a few years.  That's how epidemiologist discover when the plague hit in a place:  lots of funerals, lots of wills and pre-planned transfers of property -- then nothing for two years at least.

That image of a community understanding their mortality in very real terms is very much needed every day, some days more than the day before.

I take it you are OK with driving under the influence, driving while distracted and allowing people to randomly fire guns into the air in or near towns.  If enough people were well-informed and responsible enough members of society to not act in ways that endanger others, there would be no need for laws against reckless behaviors.  But too many aren't.  So those of us who do care about others decide to enact laws that reduce individual control in such matters.

Or you could believe people should only suffer consequences if they can be proven to have directly harmed another after the fact.  That sounds really sociopathic to me.  When serious dangers associated with actions are known, I happen to think that society should protect its members before they are impacted not after they are dead, maimed, or otherwise critically harmed.  When the benefits of an action are sufficiently positive -- or the drawbacks sufficiently negative --  there may be room for some degree of risk tolerance.  But the act of wearing a mask around others doesn't seem to be sufficiently inconvenient to justify putting lives and health at risk by spreading a dangerous virus.
