To Spook or Not to Spook the Public
Am I in Hell, or just L.A.?
The other day it was 121 degrees here.
There’s so much smoke in the air from all the wildfires the sun looks like the moon.
Everything’s closed because of the coronavirus pandemic.
People can’t go to work. School kids are struggling to learn on Zoom.
Parents are going nuts. Some are hiring teachers, wannabe teachers or former teachers to come in and tutor their kids.
And now the Los Angeles County Health Department has tried to wreck Halloween.
At first the county announced a ban on trick-or-treaters going door-to-door for candy, saying it was too difficult to maintain proper social distancing on porches, ensure mask rules, etc. etc.
The public outcry was so great the ban was quickly rescinded, but Halloween parties, carnivals, festivals, live entertainment and haunted houses are still prohibited.
The coronavirus pandemic has hit Los Angeles County especially hard.
