Nobody has a “right” to infect others with a deadly disease. Sincere thanks to members of the Anchorage Assembly who voted overwhelmingly to protect public health and save lives by enacting the masking order. Common sense and common decency has prevailed over the deranged, uncivil and incoherent mob incited by Mayor Dave Bronson.
When it comes to the loss of freedom, serious disease and death are right at the top of the list. If people don’t want to wear a mask, they still have a choice to demonstrate the courage of their convictions: stay home, order pizza delivery, add favorite toppings like ivermectin, and watch One American News all day long.
