There is a worse-governed state than Minnesota, actually several, but California has a long-running cinch on most atrocious government. I can’t resist these mask charts, these are from Ian Miller on Twitter. Now I suppose you could argue that the mask mandate kept the cases from going straight up in a vertical line. Oh wait, that is what happened. Seriously, it is a joke that people keep saying masks will make all the difference. They not only make no difference, I am wondering if they do play a role in transmission.
