Today’s read is from Christopher Bedford, a senior editor at The Federalist. Here’s an excerpt:
Washington’s mask mandate ended Tuesday morning.
It had been nearly two years, and on its final day, stood as one of the country’s last remaining hold-outs. Texas, in contrast, had ended theirs a full year before — while a number of states across the country never even had one at all.
But back in Washington Tuesday morning, a public school employee closed the door in the face of a five-year-old boy who hadn’t brought his mask. It was 39 degrees outside.
