    Rat must have been in his isolation dome a bit longer than the air containment.

    He’s making reasonable sense.

    Looking closer, that looks like a pen. I initially thought that rat pooped on the floor.

    Is it really about health, or just “Don’t catch the ’rona!”?? If you put on 10 pounds during this, we’ll know which.

    Since Pastis is pretty much these characters God, I’m wondering why he’s allowing this one to go so out of character.

    In our country, one must have wealth in order to maintain health.

    “And I’ll say to myself, “You have plenty of grain laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.’” But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?’" Luke 12:19-20

    it is always ‘health before wealth’ – much better to be healthy and poor than wealthy and sickly

    1. Do not get dead today

    2. Do not get anyone else dead today

    I’m going to the supermarket… wish me luck.

    If Rat understands, why can’t certain people in the U.S. as well?

    Wrong priority, Rat. If you HAVE wealth, you can BUY health—safe surroundings, good healthcare, delivery services, protective gear. Poor people don’t have that luxury.

    1966 Paul Simon deep cut: “And of all my wealth won’t buy me health, So I smoke a pint of tea a day” from the aptly titled “A Simple Desultory Philippic (Or How I Was Robert McNamara’d Into Submission)”.

    Rat should join Lakewood Church in Houston, TX. Then he’d be promised both health and wealth!!!

    Surely, the real Rat would not be developing such a virtuous conscience?!
