What happened to the saying "better safe than sorry?"
    I have zero argument with better safe than sorry as an argument for masks and that is one of the reason their politicization dismay me. I just have a problem with people who then go out of their way to make it seem like not wearing one is like being a murderer. And the mechanismsfor the positive aspects of mask usage is clear. But some people don't wear the right masks or use them properly - the viruses and aerosols are small enough to get outside mask that doesn't fit tightly enough, though arguably at a lower dose which might reduce spread. It can also lead to people compromising on their social distancing requirements out of a false sense of safety. But my opinion is similar to yours - I think that they will likely have benefit if they are used properly and there are good guidelines on ensuring people are consistently doing the right thing.

    The parachute analogy is good comedy but there was a lot of literature on masks and viral illness transmission before covid19 that didn't generally view them as a slam dunk. I doubt that such literature ever existed for parachutes in a similar context. In any case, I do think people should wear masks. I just don't like it when people use them to fight political battles in either direction.

    I strongly advocated the wear of masks for everyone for a temporary period to slow the spread... right or wrong... I supported it when it was unpopular. Well, that period was a very long time ago..

    Don't fall for it - it's a trap!
