Having read the school districts' recent letter to reopen in August despite COVID cases rising in this county and a plan that makes masks optional and has a clarity that could be mistaken for the dank water of runoff pond at dairy, I'm left reminded of Twain's assessment regarding idiots and school boards.
The folks openly carrying weapons that would best be described as an overcompensation for personal problems and at worst a deep seeded hatred bound in racist ideology, flaunted the law in front of police who by the own inaction dutifully acknowledge their own leaning in a most shameful way. Such is small town California, a bastion of the antithetic: folks that scream life matters...just not black lives.
The case has been made we'll return to normal after this pandemic. The case again is made that we'll return to normal after these protests. There is no going back to so-called normal, it's time for us to decide what kind of country we want to live in. Let us address systemic racism and fight for the rights of all, let reason and truth no longer crumble at the hands of despots, let us move to be better.
25 days into the quarantine, I've written a piece for EMULSIVE on my ongoing series of Polaroids.
I ♥ the open web. Film photographer and mediocre darkroom printer.
