Nothing like a little Ogden hypocrisy to start the new year
Yesterday’s editorial in the Wheeling Intelligencer criticized West Virginia’s Republican governor, Jim Justice, for not enforcing his own coronavirus rules at his own property (the Greenbrier) on New Year’s Eve:
Videos posted on the internet of the event show a closely packed room at The Greenbrier filled with many maskless guests enjoying the evening and happily avoiding social distancing guidelines.
West Virginians who have spent months slogging in the trenches fighting against COVID-19 should not have to do so while under the impression the people who run the governor’s businesses do not believe the rules apply to them.
(See four posts down for video of the event.)
On the other hand, here is the A.F. Branco cartoon in today’s Wheeling News-Register:

Yes, ignore yesterday's editorial -- it’s the blue state governors who are the real problem.
