What follows is an Open Letter to the owner of this business, urging her to resume doing business – on the theory that in a free country, people have that right and that government has no right to say otherwise.
Dear Patsy –
I and many others are more than willing to take the chance we might get sick in exchange for being able to live again.
This includes being able to work out at Crunch.
We believe in what used to be a given in America – free association. That you – as a business owner – have the right to open your business and that we, as free Americans, have a right to choose for ourselves whether to do business with you.
We fully support the right of those who are "at risk" of contracting the Corona virus or the ordinary flu or the common cold or whatever they're "concerned" about to take whatever steps they consider appropriate to reduce their risk.
