here's an interesting paper... "COMMENTARY: Masks-for-all for COVID-19 not based on sound data"

"Dr. Brosseau is a national expert on respiratory protection and infectious diseases and professor (retired), University of Illinois at Chicago.
Dr. Sietsema is also an expert on respiratory protection and an assistant professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago."


I've hit a brick wall of "moderation" at The Union in an arguement with Dick Sciaroni.

Three variations of the following were placed in AWAITING MODERATION after Dick hit me pretty hard:

"Now, if we can get the false statement back into play, that wearing a mask protects the wearer. It doesn't. It protects others from the wearer, which isn't terribly valuable if the wearer doesn't have the disease. Here's expert opinion backing that claim:


"Give it a rest, Mr. Engineer"

You can't have it both ways, Dick... either our educations don't matter, or they do, and we'd both be resting if you hadn't been giving us the runaround. And if you really want a rest, you'll drop it yourself without yet another dig."

Having heated discussions with one arm tied behind my back gets old.

BOS Agenda, Tues. 8/11/20, item 26 – OPPOSE

Please oppose agenda item 26. I urge the board of supervisors to petition/urge/lobby the governor to rescind the statewide “close all restaurants” order. Nevada County is one of the “open” counties. There is not one case of covid from a restaurant here, our hospitals are not impacted, and this county has done everything it was required to do to move to the current phase of opening.
