  1. Have fun on the “Rules for thee, but not for me” retreat. Total French Revolution vibes here. We won’t eat your cake.

  2. Of course fewer people get the flu when you have more people wearing masks and avoiding some kinds of gatherings…the flu is a respiratory virus transmitted like the sars covid2. There were record low numbers for the flu in the Southern hemisphere where the same kind of measures were in place which is usually 6 months ahead if us in the flu season….it’s summer there now….and your point?

  3. Public comment at 11:30 AM – 11:33 AM. So be sure to come out and enjoy your right to express your opinions to your Great Leaders?
    Just kidding but I’m glad we subjects of our Great Leaders do not have to fund yet another drunken drug fueled sex fest retreat for our Great Leaders at Amelia Island this year like every year that came before. See some good things did come out of the pandemic?
    Lets use that facility out on Jackson Bluff Road for our Great Leaders retreat from now on!!!
