John Ekdahl notices something.
We’ve heard a bazillion angry rants about Florida beaches from the Acela journo set directed at Gov DeSantis, but they never closed the fucking NYC subways. The mask order went into effect *TODAY*.
The Today is April 17. A thread pops up below this:
John, while our incompetent mayor fucked up majorly here, they could never close the subways. A very large percentage of essential workers use them to commute.
We need to flatten the curve. It’s absolutely critical we shut everything down.
It’s worth it to close down the subways if it saves one life. Do it
We cannot consider anything else.
Essential workers must be protected. That means keeping them off public transit.
