Rather than simply stating masks are required for entry, this Home Depot management decided to blame it all on government. “Mandated by the Governor,” the crudely hand-lettered sign says in a way calculated to stir up even more mask opposition.There already is an anti-mask group in Las Vegas.
It’s worth noting that Home Depot’s lead founder, Bernard Marcus, is a prominent Republican who was one of anti-mask Donald Trump’s biggest financial supporters in 2016, while Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak is a Democrat.
I’ll leave it to others to explain how the age-old and proven technique of wearing a mask in a pandemic has become a political issue. Meanwhile, my home improvement patronage will go elsewhere.
