  1. Poor management by Dictator Murphy….

  2. LOL. File this under “what did you expect in the most densely populated state”. It’s called science kids.

    1. so killing senior citizens in nursing homes is “science” ?

  3. Actually yes. High infection rates and high death rates occur more frequently in high density areas than in low density areas. That is science.

    1. willfully jamming covid infected people in nursing homes is murder, and “That is science”.

  4. I believe our Governor did an excellent job.
    Some who have nothing but bad to say should be quiet. Have YOU ever dealt with a pandemic before! I wonder what they would say about you!

    1. ever read a book?

  5. Murphy is an absolute asshole I can’t wait until he is gone
