Wicked Little Wednesday Motes

Could this be the end: In the summer of 1969 I walked into a small bar on S. Beretania street called Anna Bannana’s. I’ve been drinking in there since. I held my father and mother’s funeral gatherings there. I got married there. It has been the scene of weddings, christenings, birthday’s, anniversary parties, and just about any kind of party, happy or sad, you can think of. A while back she was renamed Anna O’Brien’s, but her family was still the same. Now I just hope she, and so many other small business’, can survive the closing of America. I realize people will claim bars should be the last to open, after all they are places to gather. I just hope the small ones, like Anna’s, can survive. I fear most will not.

I see things different: And I found a perfect example. There is a big whohaha about some U.K. health workers doing a “haka” dance in “defiance to the covid-19”. Immediately the usual butthurt liberals begin to decry the “cultural appropriation” and “blatant racism” of the white workers “mocking” the Maori warrior dance. Me, I see a group of people using something to pull together, pay homage to great warriors (the Maori), and defying their foe (covid-19). I see it as them relating to great warriors, in an epic battle to save lives.

I saw this coming: A Montana county is mandating citizens to wear a pink wrist band to go shopping at grocery stores. The band represents the person has quarantined for 14 days. You know who else had armbands?

I do not think that word means what you think it means: It is “unconscionable” that Rikers Island inmates who were released due to coronavirus concerns are committing new crimes, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Monday. More than 1,400 city inmates have been granted early releases due to concerns about the spread of coronavirus inside jailhouses. Definition of “unconscionable : “not right or reasonable:” “The unconscionable conduct of his son”.”synonyms,unethical, amoral, immoral, unprincipled, indefensible”. I think the idea of releasing people convicted and sentenced for crimes, before their punishment is completed, is probably the “unconscionable” act here. These people are criminals.
