(apologies to Jerry Garcia) Even though the idiot governor of South Dakota is actively discouraging masks at the Mt. Rushmore Trump rally, and says social distancing will not be implemented, they are limiting attendance in the plaza and amphitheater to 3.000 people. I can’t remember how big the amphitheater is, but 3,000 MAGA fanatics might not allow much distance between them. And there will be fireworks, so the forest may catch fire and give everyone a lung full of smoke. I don’t know if there is poison oak, but inhaling smoke from burning poison oak is serious shit. I was hoping for a severe storm with drenching rain and golf ball size hail, but I would settle for a wildfire, plague of locusts, the Four Norsemen of the Apocalypse. (just saw that one on TV heh-heh) I want them to have a miserable time. These are the people who are prolonging the crisis. By now, I should be travelling and seeing the national parks, including Rushmore. But these dime store patriots are going to keep Covid-19 circulating forever while my kayak sits uselessly in the yard. Screw them all.
