A very entertaining and investigative read. Who would have thought a year ago that speakeasy gyms would become a thing? I appreciate the context in this piece about how prohibition doesn't work and actually leads to riskier, unregulated business practices.

If you believe that the virus is probably going to reach us all in one way or another then go to a speakeasy gym. I like the writers description because exercise in a gym, going to church, going to school have now become synonomous with conservative views even though they all should be completely accepted and encouraged. Stop and think are you going to let all these constraints ruin your life and your families lives. Wearing a black mask is symbolic of fear and hate!! Wearing a mask to protect yourself or others from your germs is fine but live your life and let others live theirs!!!
