Is this that “Cancel Culture” people keep complaining about?

I wonder if anyone ever thought to blame the cancellation of Firefly on SARS.

Why that font, though? The virus is ghastly enough as it is.

It did look familiar.
Still a bad choice, though.

Consider this: we have two big political conventions coming up in the summer. And we are going to have two candidates who are both older men-- the group most susceptible to the disease.

If the disease is still raging in July, do they cancel the conventions?

How else can you explain it? If people would just look at the facts…

Yes, and the election, for public safety reasons.

I just came out of a convention where 12,000 public attendees moved through the same hall, many/most of them children. It was a close thing: If it were happening one week later Id probably have canceled my own attendence. Just gotta give it two weeks of no symptoms, and then I can believe I got away with it.

If the disease is still raging in July, ⊥rump will cancel the election.

No, but in order to prevent unnecessary contact between citizens, it will become a mandatory internet-only vote.

Except that there’s speculation that either the incubation period is longer than two weeks and or there are many more asymptomatic carriers.
