An Open Letter to the Rule-Breakers
You hear it all the time. Rules are made to be broken. And sometimes in life that’s true. This is not one of those times. We’re facing problems that we have never faced before and we’re trying to stop the spread of this nasty virus the best we can. The least we can do as good citizens and as caring human beings is follow the rules.
Believe it or not, on St. Patrick’s Day, I saw facebook posts about a bar in Poughkeepsie that was doing takeout, but also had a band. And a so-called slow cook, so “be patient while waiting for your meal.” I heard the place was packed and the police finally came after a few hours and shut it down.
We had a caller on our radio show the next day say that he was at a bar that was packed and it was a great time and he didn’t feel guilty at all. Really? And these are grown men and women in their 40s, 50s and 60s. When you decide to break these rules you don’t only put yourself at risk. You put layers and layers of people and the people they interact with at risk. Kind of like playing God, don’t you think?
So if you think that you’re immune to everything and if you’re so self righteous that you think it’s okay to make health decisions for a whole community, then I’m saying a prayer for your good health. Not because I care about you in any way, shape or form. It’s because I care about the innocent people that you seem oblivious to. And remember, karma’s a bitch.
