A modest proposal

To anyone who thinks that wearing a mask during the pandemic is a terrible burden:

Such an imposition, isn’t it, to mask up and do your bit to protect yourself and others, especially since everyone (especially you) has all those constitutional rights and freedoms, and no one’s gonna be the boss of you, by golly!

OK, then. Tell you what. If you ever need surgery, make sure that unless your surgeon and all the other operating room personnel go maskless, you’ll pass on the procedure. I mean, what about their rights? And wouldn’t you want a surgeon who’s breathing comfortably to be the one, say, resecting your bowel? Oh, that’s not the same thing, you say? How ’bout you really try to think about that for a while.
