Highly paid professionals can stand in a field and look the same way waving their hands.... Baptists and Church of Christ on the other hand....

You two can banter in your smugness all you want. The point is simple. If one is an executive, saying to themselves, how can I save the most Children's lives today? The answer is not to ban them from a store due to COVID. The answer is to stop selling Hotdogs. Likewise for everything else…
