“Justice is being done here. The only shame is that this doesn’t happen more often for much lower-level offenders who are pressured into plea bargains. This is unbelievably cool.”

—  Lazlo Toth

“There are no laws. There is no justice under this government. Four more years of this travesty and America will be unrecognizable.

— Bob Nowosacki 

“Sheer arrogance. And how many will they infect among their families or the people who work for them, as is already occurring in the White House?”

— Terry Blattner

“If you view science with contempt and ridicule, you won’t understand that a virus can be transmitted between people before it can be detected. Then you are confident that you can’t get it if you hang with only those testing negative. Once the first tests positive, it’s too late. That’s how viruses work.”

“Even IF there is a vaccine (and that’s a huge ‘if’), life still won’t go back to normal overnight.”
