    Oh yeah, we’ll just round it off to 600, give or take. All a lie. Next we will be locked down until racism is gone, then locked down until climate change is beyond reach, and we freeze, then we are locked down until airlines cannot use gas. SJC, rule against these tyrants, like rot-face Whitmore or MI.
