Letter to the editor: Such hypocrisy
To the editor:
Assemble the following ingredients: One group of nonelected political bureaucrats (health officials), 20,000-plus students starved for months for social interaction who have studied the science and know they are at low risk, one extremely anemic college football team and a late-night football game. Bureaucrats must do the following: Prohibit students from attending game in a stadium with wide-open spaces while at the same time prohibiting bars and restaurants from serving alcohol after 9 p.m. Scientific data has shown that the virus is like a vampire and is more active after dark. Add in an extremely poor performance by football team that cannot even get the starting quarterback’s name right on his jersey and requires copious amounts of alcohol consumption just to watch. This recipe has been tested at the University of Kansas in Lawrence and has proven effective in creating clusters, FYI. The Constitution of the United Sates of America allows for peaceful assembly whether it be college students, political protests, church services and other gatherings. Raising enforcement questions about student parties in September while ignoring political protests in June is blatant hypocrisy that is thicker than the smoke in California.
