Just a public service announcement to remind people that the governor of Michigan has declared items like these “non-essential” and therefore has barred businesses from selling them to customers:

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not for banning any of these items (whatever gets you through!); I just hope we are keeping our eyes open about the fact that decisions are being made about what we should be allowed to buy and what we shouldn’t; about what is important and what isn’t; about what’s good for us and what isn’t.
And those decisions are being made by people who purport to know better than we do. And who allow in-store lottery ticket purchases but rope off racks of garden seeds.
Let’s keep our eyes open, people.
