An observation about the "rugged individualists" protesting the Draconian stay-at-home orders: Some of them are wearing protective masks.
Is this paradoxical, contradictory, illogical, ironic, or all of the above?

Dan: As someone in my Twitter timeline put it: "I think it's more than a bit ironic that 'open it up' protesters claim to be rallying on behalf of rugged individualism. After all, rugged individuals ought to be able to handle a month of relative isolation a lot better than this...Not very rugged, Grizzly Adams,"

"Draco" is also the name of the database engine used by a very powerful and popular application building platform called FileMaker. Presumably, "Draco" in this case is intended to suggest the meaning "dragon" (or perhaps the constellation) and not the Greek lawgiver.
