Earlier today I'd linked to a Patch article about moms (plural) in Dedham getting outraged about the way a local ice-cream shop was giving ice-cream cones to kids who'd gotten vaccinated against Covid-19.

So you should still go to Ron's if you need an ice-cream cone, and if you like the idea of helping encourage kids to get shots, you should still donate to Cones Against Covid but not because Dedham is full of pro-Covid moms.
