As the Covid pandemic, and its attendant panic-buying, started, I noted that there was a good news, bad news thing going on.
The good news? Americans had learned a thing or two about disaster preparedness.
The bad news? They learned it from The Walking Dead.
Tangentially related? Everyone whose idea of “preparedness” involves some variation of “bugging out for the boonies” might wanna rethink that, before a real emergency hits.
Rhode Island wants to start going door to door looking for New Yorkers fleeing the pandemic’s hot spot.
It’s probably unconstitutional, and it’s probably going to get shot down in court…
…long after the pandemic has retreated into the past.
But be advised – the locals are not amused.
