I was wondering to myself what kind of person—seeing the COVID numbers climbing, knowing that thousands are dying from this highly contagious disease—would choose not to wear a mask at the grocery store. And then I heard Gov. Brown say,“I am encouraging, cajoling and asking Oregonians to be kind and to be smart,” and wear a mask when out in public in indoor spaces.

So now I know who does that: People who are either NOT smart, NOT kind, or more likely, neither.
