There are a lot of variables. I understand that. We didnt know what the social distancing would actually amount to. I get it, but we were all wrong, so, Im sort of out of the guessing business, right? We watched the numbers.

That these actions should happen on the campus of a leading New York university makes this situation even worse.
The goal of this law is simple : to prevent cigarettes and vaping products from getting into the hands of our youth, creating an addiction to a deadly habit, we are taking aggressive action to make sure the decades of progress we've made to combat tobacco addiction is not undone by a sharp rise in e-cigarette use among younger New Yorkers.
[ A ] small group [ of ] politicians put their own narrow political interests above their community -- which poll after poll showed overwhelmingly supported bringing Amazon to Long Island City -- the states economic future and the best interests of the people of this state, the New York State Senate has done tremendous damage.
