LETTER: Mask protesters aren’t very bright

In response to the recent mask protests: If the doctor tells you to take two aspirin to calm your headache, what do you do? Do you get a sign and stand on the corner screaming “No aspirin. No aspirin. Don’t take aspirin”? Standing on the street yelling about masks is just as stupid.

Wearing a mask helps to prevent you from picking up the virus or from giving it to someone else, if you have it.

This is not a political issue. It represents only common sense. Therefore, standing in the street protesting scientific, medical advice does nothing but represent profound stupidity.
