I drove down to the neighborhood barber shop this morning for my Christmas hair cut. It's a #2 cut, like always. The shop was packed. The conversation was constant. Who has mustard greens? Where can a fellow find a rick of firewood? How is Joe Biden doing?
The assembled men in the barber shop decry the job Joe is doing. The mustard greens and firewood got more comment than Joe Biden, who is universally disdained in this part of America.
Didn't see a mask anywhere. It may be that common sense has finally broken out in the US. Interestingly, I was in the shop for over an hour, and no one even mentioned Covid. Not once. Like a bad divorce, or a crazy relative, no one brought it up. It's not a topic for polite conversation. Nor even barbershop conversation.
