The words "hand stitched masks" caught my attention. They rank one notch above bandannas in effectiveness.

Heartbreaking.

And only 149,999 sad tragic stories to go..

If I started now and each story took five minutes of my life to read I could finish reading them all in about a month. That is. If I read them 24 hours a day for 30 days. But. Even then I wouldn't be done. Because there would be 10s of thousands more by then.

The gift that keeps on killing.

All Texans should be able to find some comfort in Texas Lt. Gov Dan Patrick's kind words:
"There are more important than living."

They achieve the same thing as a surgical mask.

Too bad the selfish ----- who spread it will probably never know.

Because that person deserves to not only know what they did for the rest of their lives but also they should be treated appropriately as the selfish ------- they are.

Too many people here in AZ still not masking up. Every place has signs saying mask required for entry, yet I always see people sauntering in unmasked. Time to bum rush these people out since the establishments seem reluctant to enforce it.

"They achieve the same thing as a surgical mask."

Only if they're machine made from a very dense thread count and triple layered. I know, I experimented with a lot of them because I wanted to help out with the shortage. Then I worried that my machine stitched masks were, much like the surgical masks we see so much of, giving people a false sense of security. So I stopped sewing them and started buying N95 masks and giving them away to people I knew who had a serious underlying condition but were still using those surgical masks that protected other people but didn't protect THEM at all.

Your math is off.

At 5 minutes apiece, 24 hours a day, you'd only get through 8,640 in 30 days. It would take almost a year and a half to get to 150,000. And as long as the death rate is more than 288 a day...

...you'd never catch up.

You do realize your thinking is about two months out of date, right?
