A couple of weeks back I found myself in Salt Lake City. I was there to make a keynote speech to the Dairy Farmers of America – Mountain Division. I spoke to the Southeastern Division in Nashville back last summer. Sometimes one speech leads to another.

To get there I endured four hours in a mask on a Southwest Airlines flight. The airline attendants continuously reminded all passengers to keep their masks on during the flight, but on my return trip they hinted the mask mandate might soon be lifted in airports and onboard planes. I understand now the mandate has been extended another 30 days.
