Insanity. We are begging for worse spikes in cases with all these faster spreading variants out there that will be resistant to the vaccine.

Herd immunity is a horrific public policy.

Herd immunity has never been achieved without a vaccine.

It's a perfectly sensible public policy, but it can't happen without lickdowns and jabs.

Hey.  The people doing the partying probably won't get  too sick and die, so why should they care if they kill their own parents and grandparents, right?

I'm not really surprised.  The New Orleans economy relies on Mardi Gras.  There's only so much money shrimping and sporadic tourism can bring.


Yes, it's short sighted but it's literally the thing that keeps the city going.

They postponed Jazz Fest etc until the Fall. I thought Mardi Gras as going to be a party in front of your house thing from other posts ?

Jesus, people, the end is in sight. 1.5 million vaccine shots went in arms last Friday alone. Grow up and ride this out at home.

The same group blaming the locals and not the tourists for the rise in COVID cases.

https://www.nola.com/news/coronavirus​/​article_8248493a-68cf-11eb-9489-b73af5​53cbe2.html

Because everyone knows the locals always flock to Bourbon Street.

I'm fairly confident that the people that would travel to New Orleans in the middle of a raging pandemic to celebrate face to ass with others, drink clinically unhealthy levels of alcohol, and bare as much skin as possible in front of random strangers up to and including sexual acts on each other are probably not a large demographic of people worth saving, or they've already gotten most transmittable diseases that humans can get and survive..mostly.

So I don't think those people are going to be shamed in to behaving appropriately in this current climate. Have fun y'all. Please fill up their hospitals and not ours.

This whole genocide thing is going a lot faster this time around.

Instead of round ups and train rides to gas chambers, people pay money to go on "vacation" during a deadly pandemic.

Gambling is literally the reason a city was built in an inhospitable desert also (Las Vegas). These places should be farking closed off, gatherings prohibited and strictly enforced. It is absolutely outrageous to me to see a bunch of dumbfarks all celebrating a football game victory in the streets. This isn't even to mention all the morons who had watch parties with groups of friends spreading the plague. Until we start hard-core enforcing things with threat of force, it isn't going to change. Vaccines cannot come quickly enough.

This is the tourism folks. The City of New Orleans has said "Don't be dumb and selfish" and these guys are annoyed about it.

kindms: They postponed Jazz Fest etc until the Fall. I thought Mardi Gras as going to be a party in front of your house thing from other posts ?


It is. They canceled the parades.

This is the tourism board begging people to come to New Orleans and complaining that city officials are taking measures to curb the spread the virus by blaming the locals for causing it to happen in the first place.

Because tourists are always responsible when they're in New Orleans.

None of those killed more Americans than died in WWII, but in just a few months as opposed to six years, like it took to lose those lives in WWII.

So, seems like another one's going to hurt quite a lot, actually.

Meanwhile in Austin:

"Introducing SXSW Online, a digital experience from March 16-20, 2021.
Due to the recent surge in COVID-19 cases, we expect that the City of Austin will continue its restrictions on large gatherings through March 2021, so it will not be possible for SXSW to stage a large, in-person event within our usual footprint.
The focus now is on SXSW Online 2021, and we look forward to bringing you the many aspects of our event that make it unique while connecting with our attendees in new and meaningful ways."


Yeah, im sure theyre just selling tons and tons of tickets for that.
Good on em for trying tho.

I'll probably wait until a few months have gone by before I get the jab, but if it helps combat the virus, you can sign me up for a lickdown today!

The Spanish Flu never had a successful vaccine created. It did burn through the world and left between 20 and 50 million dead.

I'm cool with lickdowns and jabs, but I also subscribe to lockdowns, jabs, testing, contact tracing, masking up, and social distancing.

In Louisiana they're trying to imitate Florida right after Ron DeSantis set a bunch of bioterroristic examples.

National Guard on the borders, close the ports in Louisiana. No one in or out.

It's not so much the typo, so much as pairing it with "jab" worked on certain levels.

I thought they canceled mardi gras and are letting people celebrate only from the balconies or whatever they are actually called in NOLA... (They have a special name because of the support posts, but I don't remember)

I love NOLA this time of year, and I was there last year 3 weeks before the first case was reported before the lockdowns happened. I won't be going back until this is all calmed down.

But 20 year olds are gonna 20 year old...

Last years Mardi Gras was one of the first superspreader events in the US (Louisiana was one of the first states to be hit hard by this).

Why break tradition now.
