Our governor is taking us back to what he calls a modified Phase 2 in the fight against the Wu-Flu.
He tried to be upbeat about it, saying that eventually, and for what he might be in several months, that we could put the virus "in our rearview mirror". We can only hope.
It is my continued prayer that once this virus is behind us, that the Governor spends as much time, energy, and political capital on opening Louisiana as he has spent on the virus. He could start by telling the various health departments to leave businesses alone for 10 months, tell the State Fire Marshal to go home for 10 months, unless something is actually smoldering after a fire, Tell the alcohol inspectors to take an extended vacation.
Louisiana has seen a terrible contraction of personal and business freedom for the past 10 months, and the least the Governor can do, when this is over, to let us roar without being hounded by functionary, officious bureacrats.
