Peak Stupidity mentioned in Government School Welfare Still Operating that whether learning/indoctrination goes on or not, the free school meals don't end. As I drove by a high school in a bad side of town*, the other day, closed along with the rest of them, I saw about 8 cop cars and lines of other cars up toward the front.
Can that be all for the picking up of a week's worth of school meals? I wondered this, but it was a Wednesday or Thursday, not the start of the week. Later that day, I learned that this line was for COVID-19 quick-testing. Interesting.
Why the big lines and the cop cars, though? Oh, yeah, cop cars were there because whatever the hell is going on, this is the bad side of town, after all. The line was due to the fact that these COVID-one-niner test-takers would be supplied a free meal for their effort in showing up. I expect fried chicken was involved, but Peak Stupidity has not yet confirmed that with our sources. As a friend noted, just in general, most parents will not attend public school events unless some kind of free food is involved.
This Chicken for COVID deal was not just for parents. The idea was to get a large sample of residents of the county. Is is a random sample? I'm no statistician, but I'd say it could be a random sample of fried-chicken lovers. Perhaps, blood cholesterol data should be obtained at the same time, as I'm guessing that the Kung Flu will not end up being as big a cause of the death of these people as clogged arteries.
Clogged arteries don't bleed though, and remember, "if it bleeds, it leads".
Well, that was my quick anecdote that I'd forgot at the time of yesterday's post. Hopefully tomorrow Peak Stupidity can get back to it's more active routine, including our Morning Constitutional.
* Maybe not the baddest, but that's arguable ... usually by dudes with custom Continentals, El Dorados too, and razors in their shoes.
