Letter: Time to lift restrictions

The editor:  

Let’s follow the Texas governor’s lead and end any and all restrictions that have been put in place because of Covid.

You must realize by now the damage being done to our economy, our children, our seniors and the general public.  

The “models” that your experts are providing you with, using the words may and could, are simply only true in media hype. The advice the so-called experts have given has caused far more  damage to society than COVID ever could.  

No where in the world have I seen reports of a D6 cat digging mass graves because of COVID. But I can guess that social services may and could be busy for years dealing with the damage caused to our youth and general population. 

Rules such as locking seniors up in nursing homes without support of loved ones, while allowing staff to go home to family, or forcing cancer patients to take treatments while their husband or wife sits in the parking lot are some of the things your experts are telling you to force on your citizens?  

You can go to a restaurant with your aging parents, but they can’t come over to see the grandchildren? 

Please step up and lead us out of this mess as other leaders are starting to do.
