I have a sign on the back window of my truck that says “stupidity is curable.” After reading Greg Thomas’s letter (Downtown propaganda is ‘newspeak’) in the July 16 Morgan Hill Times, maybe I am wrong.
He and others like him are the reason that Morgan Hill had one of the highest infection rates in the county, second only to Gilroy. His fancy words are the disguise of his ignorance. The tragedy is when people like Greg get the virus they survive, but the people around them—parents and grandparents—they die.
I and every member of my family have been vaccinated. One of my family members is on the front line. I have listened to the stories about how this virus kills. The impact it has had on the nurses and doctors who held the hands of people as they breathe their last breath may never be known.
Like you, the virus has no conscience.
