      There are only two possible explanations for why this might be. The first is that people are dumber than a bag of hammers.

      The second is that when people tell you what they think about “reopening” and “masks,” they aren’t actually talking about the coronavirus. They’re telling a story about how they see themselves and their place in the world.
