Across America, states are casting off the shackles of COVID restrictions and returning to normal. Not a new normal, not a variation on normal, but plain, good old-fashioned normal.
Meanwhile, absolutely nobody is surprised that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s position is, essentially, “Not so fast.”
You see, here in the Empire State — aptly named as it is still widely ruled through Emperor Cuomo’s emergency powers — our daily lives are still riddled with a hodgepodge of contradictory and oft bizarre restrictions on our freedoms. Like a jilted paramour, Cuomo simply can’t accept that the COVID crisis is over.
The current landscape of COVID regulations enforced by Cuomo’s regime simply makes no sense. Over at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, more that 10,000 fans, often maskless while eating and drinking, watch the mighty Nets course through the NBA playoffs.
