Who would resort to subtlety during a pandemic?
It has been with a growing frequency that the use of public beaches by the general public has become a controversial topic. In California, thousands converged on recently-closed beaches after Governor Gavin Newsome closed down the open locations. In Jacksonville, they recently reopened the beaches and that provoked a strong negative reaction — from journalists in the New York City area.
Something to note; as they carp about Florida, the viral hotbed of New York City has not only been operating its subway lines, confining people inside contagion tubes, but only just NOW decided it might be a grand idea to begin disinfecting the train cars.
Over in the Florida panhandle, they have also let the citizens go back out in public but at least one member of the gentry feels this is a bad idea. A local resident is against the idea of opening the state back up to normal life, and he is delivering his message in a completely normal Florida fashion — He is dressing up as death.

Is it inappropriate of me to say, ”You’re killing me, Smalls!’’?? Not only is this a gripping visual to deliver a message, but he was also interviewed by a local station. It may come as little surprise that the guy behind the death mask is…a lawyer.
So there you have it, all of those who were wondering if Florida has been adversely affected by the pandemic. The answer is clearly a ‘’No’’ — we continue to be just as strange and unhinged as ever before.
