Good for Justin Turner!

Here I am on Facebook.

It was almost as awesome as watching my beloved Los Angeles Dodgers win their first World Series in 32 years.

Justin Turner, their all-star third baseman, was removed from Game 6 of the World Series after a positive COVID test. Then, to the shock and dismay of Lockdown Nation, Turner, who was asymptomatic, ignored instructions to self-isolate and joined his teammates in the post-game victory celebration.

Needless to say, the drama queens at Major League Baseball have … you guessed it … launched an investigation.

Good for Justin Turner! We need to stop treating COVID like it’s the bubonic plague. Why don’t people come unhinged like this every flu season? Contagious diseases have been with us forever and will never go away. Let’s just get on with normal life.

About Food for the Thinkers

My name is Doug Newman. I live in Aurora, Colorado, just outside Denver. Food for the Thinkers is mostly about the connection between Christianity and libertarianism. Most Christians do not understand libertarianism. And most libertarians do not understand Christianity. Hopefully, this blog helps clear up those misunderstanding. Check out my old page at And remember: When you let people do whatever they want, you get Woodstock. But when you let governments do whatever they want, you get Auschwitz.
