We ain't real smart in this state.

The upper decks are closed, technically limiting the crowd to 50 percent capacity.

yeah, 50% capacity is supposed to mean block every other seat throughout the venue, not have half the place 0% full and 100% full in the other half

why are they even bothering making a show of limiting it?  the people who would think it was ok to go don't care if they are packed with sardines, and 50% is too dense for most people who are actually trying to not be plague rats.  hell, tell the fire marshal that maximum occupancy rules are infringing your constitutional rights and try to jam as many in there are physically possible

I think an old strategy is emerging or becoming dominant.  Futility.

see, there will be "social distance" and "limit to 50%" and yet, cases will still emerge.  Claims will be made that these regulations don't really work so why should we bother.  Gonna get the 'rona no matter what.

Anybody in the Sioux Falls region who does catch COVID-19 at the Sanford Arena show hosted by Sanford Health can get tested at a Sanford lab and seek help at one of the Sanford hospitals.

Normally I would laugh, but what's happening is pants-on-head ignorant. Shame on you for endorsing this, Sanford Health.

Denny Sanford has his own troubles in the form of a search warrant for child pornography that was executed at his home last month. The investigation originated with state authorities but has since gone federal.

Ruh roh.

Fun factoid. Denny Sanford wanted to buy the Vikings back in the mid-oughts.  For whatever reason the NFL wasn't impressed with his finances, although he seems to have money to burn.  So he settled for slapping his name one pretty much every stationary object in South Dakota instead.

it's for the performer.  he's putting people off with this dumb decision, the least the venue can do is make it look like the place is packed with fans who are dying to see him.  anyone can sell out if you restrict the ticket sales!

FTFA:

I hope folks from across the state can join us for the event and help us celebrate the things that make South Dakota such a special place.

They are on track to accomplish that.

It's amusing when people assume that words are positive when they aren't. "Special" in this case. In other contexts the word has been "interesting".

Danny Sanford made his money by using lax usury laws in SD that let him charge hundreds in fees on newly opened, low limit, high interest credit cards aimed at the subprime market.

It's really no wonder he's all about scam and grift even in his healthcare system. Do hospitals get extra payments somewhere for COVID patients? There's got to be something in the bottom line enticing them to do this.

Yeah, I'm already seeing this in Montana. Governor Bullock instituted a mask order again in July. As our cases continue to rise - we hit a record high in new cases (293) on Saturday - there are people saying "see, masks don't work."

Should have added, "And we hope he doesn't die."

I suspect Las Vegas will be jumping numbers soon.  We leveled down to 300/day over the last few weeks.

Trump rally held last week at indoor place, approx 6200 in attendance.  Little to no distancing or masks.

On Sunday, all Las Vegas bars are allowed to open.  They've already showed spreading cases from the few open casinos.

*Drives down road past local gun shop, sees Trump stuff all over place, people giving out promo/campaign stuff - no distancing, no masks, no brains.
