We are gradually reopening in Texas. It’s a thoughtful, and so far effective, alternative to staying locked indoors.
We can do both. We can go back to work with some restrictions and protect ourselves from a contagious virus. We can do it, and it’s time to do it.
According to Scott Rasmussen, the country wants to open:
Sixty percent of voters nationwide believe that all businesses — ALL businesses — should be allowed to re-open if they adopt appropriate social distancing protocols.Only 26 percent disagree.The reality, of course, is that means everyday Americans will decide what sort of social distancing is appropriate.
They — not government officials — will make decisions about which businesses are safe enough to visit and which are not.
I understand how that 61% feels. I am not a pollster, but these numbers confirm what I am hearing.
Over the last two weeks, I’ve seen more cars on our highways. Some restaurants are open, and people are eating. Other places are still doing a lot of ordering business. We are debating whether or not to return to school, and I hope they do. We are doing more and more but maintaining a sensible respect for others, such as wearing a mask or keeping a safe distance at the local convenience store.
This lockdown must end, as David Marcus wrote. He wants New York City looking like New York City again, not a ghost town suitable for that show about the world “after people.”
Memo to some governors: The people are still here, and we are perfectly capable of protecting ourselves. So open up and let us live and produce.
