Masks and Your Child — What we don’t know

Also Read: Great News About COVID-19 Normally, in an informational post, I try to focus only on what I know to be fact, what is widely accepted in the medical community, and what is supported in the literature. I also write posts based solely on opinion, and I hope I make it clear in the text […]

Masks Are Like Windshields: Stop Yelling!

Take an average, level-headed woman, whose friends and family wouldn’t describe her as hot tempered, put her behind the wheel of a car and cut her off in traffic.
