Ahh, a sleep-away Jesus summer camp. Can you BE any gayer?

Seriously, such a place would be one of my first stops on my Time Machine Tour of childhood.

"we plan to continue to safely serve your camper through the remainder of the summer as the Lord allows"

They are totally going to serve campers safely for the remainder of the summer as they have done a great job so far! Lord says Covid for you and you and you

There are days I miss my youth for some things and there are days I'm glad I'm no longer in one of those kinds of places as an adult. God help the kids these days cause obvious the parents sure aren't sending them to places like this.

Really?

Lollapalooza Covid Risk

Iowa State Fair looks great though!


I was joking about the risk. I just cringe seeing that many people that close right now :p

Looks like my local super spreader event kicks off the same day as yours. You get more people but I'd expect record turnouts in both states when there hasn't been shiat to do in forever now.

COVID is just one of a stew of transmisibles being passed around Lollapalooza.

The ISF OTOH is a testing ground for zoonotic STDs

The county next to mine has a fair coming up. I hope they come to their senses and cancel it, but I'm not holding my breath.

Meanwhile, we've had to restart incident command and open a previously closed cohort unit at the hospital.

On top of it all, CDC is expected to announce why they've decided to add the vaccinated to the list of people who need to wear a mask. Supposedly the virus can live, reproduce and spread in the respiratory system of the vaccinated.

Hi. Happy Friday.

YAY! But it's OK, if some of them die, they get to meet Jesus sooner.

That's the silver lining to all the illness and death among the Jesusy idiots. You get to fly up to Jesus sooner than you thought.

So you should really be happy about all this. And you get to take all the credit for it, too.

i wish someone would track these people and see, after 10-30 days,
how many of them ACTUALLY got sick.  And of those that did get sick,
how many required being put into a hospital.  Out of those that were hospitalized,
how many died.   Bet it would be near zero!

Mr Trump, you need to spend less money on Russian hookers and more money on Photoshop.
