These Aren't the Droids You're Looking For

TULSA, Okla. — The 2021 Tulsa State Fair IS happening this year, Tulsa officials confirm during the City of Tulsa's COVID-19 press conference today.

In a banner on the website, the fair dates are listed as September 30th through October 10th this fall. The theme for the year is 11 Days of Awesome.

The 2020 fair was canceled due to the pandemic. Only some livestock events took place.



That was April, when Delta was something in India. 
In the movie "Contagion" the local governments were more concerned about the pandemic's effect on Christmas shopping than the pandemic itself.
It came across as pretty absurd until you see its real-life counterpart playing out, yet we desperately need those doses of "normal" to emotionally weather the current crisis.

The view from a hiding place under a rock is pretty dismal, but pretending nothing is wrong is lethal. 
Can we really make this work?  Obviously, things would have to be very different.

I couldnt even find the word "Covid" on their website   https://www.tulsastatefair.com/
which isnt encouraging at all.

Its not likely the county would have a mandate (or that the sheriff would enforce one) if their environment is anything like this example:

Well, it really isn't all that bad... after all, only 600,000 have died here.  More than that died due to smallpox last time it came around and that was all Native Americans, so they really weren't people now, were they??

As Trump says, "It is what it is..."



And just in case anyone is new here and thinks for a second that any of that first paragraph are really how I feel.... No.

It's just very hard to put enough sarcasm into text to get the point across.  But be assured, it is dripping all over the place, oozing from the walls, and hanging in clumps from the ceiling!
