The idea of hiding from an invading pandemic makes perfect sense. But the policy is also filled with loopholes and contradictions such as, why close the farmers markets, but not the grocery stores or the bars?

In an age when people can choose among text messages, email, Facebook and old-fashioned stamps and printed cards, the chance to use the wrong method when sending your very best is quite high. Well, the Associated Press went straight to an expert among experts: Judith Martin, author of the syndicated Miss Manners column, who offers guidance on dealing with the evolving etiquette of expressing sincere sentiments in an increasingly impersonal, digital world.
Her general advice is that formal events and intimate expressions require a handwritten note. But for more casual events and occasions, she gives people permission to send an email or text message greeting or even post to Facebook. Just keep it tasteful, OK? You sit down and write a real letter. Cards are a strange thing because they are in between. I’ve always been puzzled about why people spend hours selecting a card with a preprinted sentiment instead of just sitting down and writing a sentiment that they feel.
It doesn’t apply to Christmas cards or Valentine cards, where the picture is a great part of it. But to send, for instance, a sympathy card is the most impersonal way of reacting to something that is very deep and emotional. Romeo didn’t email love letters to Juliet.

Miss Manners Topics
Paging Miss Manners! A man’s mother detests his wife’s mother so much, that she wants to exclude her from the baby shower. How can he tip-toe his way through this field of turds? A woman very much wants to pursue amorous relations with a hot fireman. But she has insider information suggesting he might be a dick-head. Should she throw caution to the wind?
Dear Miss Manners:. Since this is the 21st century and not the 18th century, I thought that perhaps women’s thinking had changed. Evidently, when it comes to spending money on others, it hasn’t. I would like to know the correct way to entertain the opposite sex when the woman insists on being a “friend” and not a “date. A woman who became a widow two years ago, and evidently is still in mourning does not want to use the term “dating,” so she would like to go for meals with me but feels I should pay the entire check.
I told her that since she insists on our being friends and not dating, that the situation changes and that she should split the check with me. After all, don’t friends always split checks? And, as a friend, I wouldn’t even get a good night kiss since I wouldn’t be considered her date. Your opinion? Gentle Reader:. You had Miss Manners on your side until the good night kiss.
