    I just started this, but I thought I’d mention that I think the panelists are being a bit obtuse.

    People wear masks outside because, especially if they get their (misleading) information from leftist media, they’ve been told they need to, to be safe and to protect others.

    Or they simply forgot to take it off when they went outside, as often happens to me.

    Judit Polgar of Hungary was ranked number eight in the world in 2005, which I believe is the highest ranking any woman has ever achieved in chess.  She retired in 2015.

    As of January 2021, the top woman (from China) is in 85th place in the overall list.

    When we realize that intelligence is a polygenic trait, then it’s not as obvious that we are “breeding for stupidity”.

    As long as the slightly-above-average have more children than the slightly-below-average, things are moving in the direction of higher IQ in the population as a whole.

    And sometimes I keep the mask on outside if I’m going rather quickly between places. The ones I sometimes think have a death wish are the runners/bicyclists with the mask on. I keep thinking one will keel over from lack of oxygen.

    Now that I’m all Moderna-ized, I plan to order a face mask, with the caption:

    There Is No Scientific Reason For Me To Be Wearing This

    Heather MacDonald for Queen of the World. I started noting wonderful things she said but the list got way too long.

    She’s my idol.
