It's been a month since Texas dropped their mask mandate and opened up businesses to full capacity. Covid positive tests as well as other indicators are still dropping like stones. MSNBC went to their Gnome on Call, Fauci, to see if he could look into his crystal ball and find out why. His brilliant answer? "I'm really not sure. It could be they're doing things outdoors."
He fell back on his usual scare rhetoric but the thing he's really scared of is that there is a large scale, very visible example of showing that what they did was as stupid as the rest of us thought--that lockdowns and masks are counter-productive and keeps the problem alive for as long as possible.
