Really? And what about citizen walking areound instead of using their automobiles upon the public highways - what is the rationale behind those restrictions? What gives the governor the authority to suspend travel by foot?
Further, what gives the governor the authority to imprision foot travelers in a shelter? Why wouldn't those folks be allowed to return to their homes?
