      We apologize for the alarming amount of passengers on this flight.

      Not exactly what you want to hear.

      The glittering allure of “normalcy” that waits on the other end of these stay-at-home orders is a mirage.

      It will really take a while for us to get used to this new normal we live in.

      Wow. I hate air travel at the best of times. Again, people this concerned just isn't what I'm used to seeing. Now that our state is opening up, today I've gone out a little more and was pleasantly surprised to see the customers at Sam's Club taking things far more seriously than at my tool store. I forgot my mask, and since most customers at my store don't wear masks, and us employees do, I'm used to feeling out of place by wearing one. In fact, I've been told by customers that I shouldn't be wearing a "fear mask." That must be a republican thing, more than one person has used that phrase. At Sam's Club, the opposite happened, and I felt out of place by not having a mask. Other than embarrassment and slight concern for my safety, I was however pleased to see that at least part of our local population is taking the virus seriously.
