I want to talk about the word "mistake".
I'm very tired of hearing a person's bad behavior referred to as a "mistake".
A mistake is when you go to the store to get some canned peaches and you walk over to the canned fruit, find the peaches, reach out and get a can, buy it and take it home, and then find that you managed to pick up a can of pears instead.
Knowingly and willfully breaking the law is not a mistake. Repeatedly going against your doctor's orders to wear a mask so that you don't give people your multiple-drug-resistant and therefore virtually untreatable TB because you actually don't feel bad and think your doctor is overreacting, and therefore they have to lock you up to keep the populace safe, isn't a mistake. I know the people at that blog are tired of me running my mouth because I disagree with them about virtually everything but I just had to get that out of my system.
