It had just gotten to the point where you could clear your throat in a cab without the driver rolling the window down and handing you a mask. :(

I wish someone would come up with a better mask. I got a cold during the Sars outbreak and had to go to the doctor. I wore a mask and it made me crazy. First of all it only comes in one size which is way too freaking big. Second it's so hot and stuffy. They make those cooling gel packs. I wish someone would stick some of that in a mask or something to make it feel cooler and more comfortable to wear. How do doctors and nurses stand to wear those things all the time?

Dear Azriel,

I totally agree. The masks are designed terribly and I don't understand how the doctors and nurses could wear them for so many hours. We could suffocate to it.

Hope the case an isolated one and hope this guy's not spread it to others.
