Cartoon: a joyous character saying, "hooray! mask mandates are lifting!" There is an asterisk by the words that leads to "terms and conditions," such as, "offer only good in certain jurisdictions, your region must be in the "moderate" yellow tier, etc."

Today most Bay Area counties announced plans for lifting face mask mandates ... once specific public health requirements are met.

Spoiler alert: It may take until the new year for some of these jurisdictions to meet benchmarks that will ease mask mandates.

I hate face masks, and I bet, with very few exceptions, we all hate masks.

But I love the fact that simple pieces of cloth strapped to our faces have allowed schools to stay open and businesses to operate.

Masks: You gotta love/hate 'em.
