COVID sucks, and Greg Dworkin with David Waldman try to determine if this suckage will peak again soon. This time children are more involved, and that doesn’t just mean that more people are sick, but that a new range of stresses are being introduced to societal infrastructure just as kids go back to school. School boards in Florida are mandating masks, defying Governor Ron DeSantis’ authority. So is Joe Biden, who is preparing to take legal action, including deploying the Education Department’s civil rights enforcement arm, against DeSantis and other Govs blocking school masks. The GQP is losing the coronavirus mandate battle as red states lose the coronavirus infection battle and are beginning to get the picture on social responsibility.
