Don't worry. Governors are politically prepared to make tough calls like cancelling popular, visible, and culturally symbolic events. It's not like went along with the pied pipers of freedumb who led their constituents and party members down a path of anti-intellectual, anti-science skullduggery. Iowans will be eager to do what needs to be done when asked by their state officials, whether that be mask wearing, lockdowns, vaccines, or just not intentionally coughing on their diner waitress who is wearing a mask while recovering from cancer treatment.

They set themselves up nicely to lead.

If you want a million MAGA heads to explode all at once, ban fried food as a public safety measure.

Meh.

Let them enjoy their fried butter.

We'll all enjoy fewer of the sorts of people who would remain unvaccinated 'because stigginit' as a result...

I had hoped this pandemic would be a wake up call to overweight Americans. Millions of people aren't even willing to go to a pharmacy and get a free thing that protects their health. I guess it was really dumb for me to think a lot of people would lose weight.

In addition, the delta variant is two to three times more transmissible

We already know the spread is exponential, this time the base number will be 2-3 times higher, awesome!
 
2021-07-29 9:06:34 PM  
But it is only Iowans, one quarter of whom regularly re-elected an open Nazi sympathizer.  Three of four reps and both senators are Republicans.

Radar O'Reilly would be embarrassed about the extent to which his state is reality-impaired, but hey, we can't save people who don't want to be saved, so we can only sit back and allow them to make these kinds of mistakes.

84 known COVID cases so far out of Stampede, which is neither great nor horrible.

Deep-fried butter wrapped in bacon

But why? I love a nicely-marbled steak, and my Brussels sprouts fired in bacon fat, but this seems like the food-analogue to scat porn. At some point, they're just going to start chugging peanut oil.

I'm in the process of resigning myself to the fact that the local fair might not happen.  It's still about 6 weeks away.  Plenty of time for the anti-vaxxers to continue to fark things up.

"Spicy Curry natto". That's rotten soybeans with - for some f*cking reason - curry sauce.

Don't get me wrong; I like the rotten soybeans part, but curry? Why?

Hopefully I can keep playing music with vaccinated friends, but I fear most of the other nice things I got back will be going away again.

I had natto for breakfast one morning at a hotel with a breakfast bar in Kansas once.  In my still slightly drunk, extremely hung over state I thought I just got ripped too much and really needed to brush my teeth and had gotten some baked beans to go with my eggs and toast.

Not bad.  Not great.  Satisfying given the state I was in, both metaphorically and physically.

That's only the second weirdest thing I've found in Kansas.

The stuff you get in hotels in always the ultra-small-bean type which isn't that great. Even I don't care for it.

Get the big-bean type, throw it on some freshly-cooked rice, and dress it with raw quail egg and shredded nori. You can't get the stuff with shiso sauce anymore, but the egg-soy sauce and use-black-vinegar sauce are quite good.

Holy sh*t, I just reread your post.
