This is for those of you who’ve chosen to quit your jobs rather than submit to a vaccine mandate.
Well, on behalf of the rest of us, the ones who miss concerts, restaurants and other people’s faces, the ones who are sick and tired of living in pandemic times, here’s a word of response to you quitters: Goodbye.
And here’s two more: Good riddance.
But the rest of us, we’re mad at you. Because this thing could have been over by now, and you’re the reason it isn’t.
That’s why we were glad President Joe Biden stopped asking nicely, started requiring vaccinations everywhere he had power to do so. We were also glad when employers followed suit. And if that’s a problem for you, then, yes, goodbye, sayonara, auf Wiedersehen, adios and adieu. We’ll miss you, to be sure. But you’re asking us to choose between your petulance and our lives.
And that’s really no choice at all.
i just wrote a thank you email to Mr Pitts about this column.

Dear. Mr Pitts,I have just read your article, Goodbye and Good Riddance.Thank you for this. I have recently been reading the subreddit Herman Cain Awards too.I and many others, I am sure, have been masking and distancing since well before Feb 2020. In my case, since October 2019 when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I completed my chemo in April 2020, had no immune system, had surgery then and radiation until June. In the middle of the first wave. Terrified. Got my vaccines a year later, relieved but still masking now!I personally know a dozen people who have had covid, in the USA and abroad, and know many who have passed. None of them were obstinate, all of them had families who now miss them and colleagues, too. Many were unable to get the vaccines due to supplies in their countries.The privilege of theses holdouts is astonishing, Biden should send their doses to other places who lack them, and also the holdouts who spread mis and disinfo should not be guaranteed care in a hospital having to triage patients (in AK, ID, MT now, that I am aware of). Don’t believe in the vax, or covid, fine, want to own the libs, great stay home, don’t clog up the hospitals when you cannot breathe.Thanks for addressing these goons as they should be. They are the minority, hoping to own the libs and well, too bad. I like many others, am out of care for them.
thank him in an email if you agree.
