A Linden man was recently sentenced for wiping his nose on a Holly Dollar General employee this past May. First of all, I remember it like it was yesterday, damn time does indeed fly.

So what is the punishment for wiping your nose on someone? Probation. Rex Gomoll, 68, will spend one year on probation. If you are not familiar with the case, the Argentine Township man was asked to wear a mask inside of the store by an employee. There was also a sign on the door indicating customers were required to wear a mask.

Gomoll refused to wear a mask, and in turn, wiped his nose on the employees shirt. Ugh. If you think that sounds crazy, me too - but there is video to prove it (see above).

I just don't get it, why the anger in regards to wearing a mask? I said before, if you don't want to wear in a mask, don't go into a business that requires them. Now that has changed, due to the fact that not wearing a mask is no longer an option in Michigan. So now what are people that refuse to wear masks supposed to do? Wear a mask, or stay home. Those are the only options.

The great mask debate does not appear to be going away anytime soon. As a matter of fact, my next post for today is about an actual knife fight over wearing a mask. The story ends with a man being shot. All over a damn mask. What a shame.
