Annals of Covid Shaming | Talking Points Memo

One thing that comes through in conversations with friends and family who hunkered down, masked up, and kept themselves and their families safe in the last year is the anger at having done the right thing at great personal expense while the rest of the country goes to Disneyworld and college football games. One close friend just asked “Are we suckers?” even though people like us are probably somewhat responsible for keeping our fingers in the dike long enough to get to the vaccines.

This question is one I have asked myself a bunch of times over the last fourteen months.
