Independence Day

At 12:44 a.m. EDT the Moon will be full. 
There will also be a partial penumbral eclipse of the Moon
around the same time, visible from most of North America.

So, something happened on Friday...

"Our store is closed for the time being due to an emergency threat 
to the well-being of our employees"

On Friday, a person who was at our beloved general store here in Jericho 
threatened the employees there over the store's social distancing requirement. 
The owner promptly shut down the store, on a holiday weekend, losing much revenue, 
because he values his workers more than his wallet. We don't know when it will reopen.

I am shocked that this happened in our kind-hearted community at the store my family and I have loved for nearly 40 years. Locals will make sure the store remains solvent, as it is the heart of this community. And I certainly hope that the person who did this 
is caught, charged and gets the help they clearly need.

I wrote to Vermont Governor Phil Scott asking that he please make masks and social distancing mandatory in Vermont, so that it is expected everywhere and takes the responsibility  for the requirement off the shoulders of store owners and employees.  
I added that the leeway he gives now, 
leaves them and their communities terribly vulnerable.

When a plot to shoot up a school was foiled, he decided to enact gun laws.
I hope this jars him enough to issue a mandatory mask declaration.
