A Modest Problem

In response to my piece on the hypocrisy of America’s celebrity class, I have received an emphatic e-mail instructing me to “shut up, and just wear a damn mask.”

I would simply point out that I’m not the only person implicated by this injunction. In particular, I don’t like the idea of my three-year-old having to wear a mask at school, on the grounds that it would prove impractical for him to spend such a long and unbroken period of time each day with his middle finger fully extended.
