Read an interesting Oct. 7 letter from Jeff Dover. Here are some major points (lacking verifiable data):

1. “How many very sick or dead people do you know where the direct cause was COVID-19? None? Same here.”

2. “...paranoia...Deep State and fake news media.”

3. “ is mostly hype.”

4. “ chosen experts.”

5. “Loose the mask.”

6. “...over-hyped virus.”

Verifiable data follows: As of this writing there are 7.58 million COVID-19 cases in the U.S. As of this writing there are 212,000 COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. You are correct, I don't know any of these people. I hesitate to think that my lack of personal knowledge lends credence to any of the above stated points.

One last question relative to the fifth point above: Do you wear a seat belt in the car while in motion?
