Chicago’s 30 miles of beach and other lakefront, being the windiest spots in the Windy City, are of course closed. That’s Settled Science!
But in Chicago last night from WGN TV:
Some guests are wearing masks, but basically this black house party looks like Jonathan Kay’s characterization of a typical in-your-face Super Spreader Event. Most of the West Side participants are quite young, so they aren’t in mortal danger, but no doubt many of them live with their moms and/or grandmas.
One thing the Windy City has a lot of compared to Los Angeles is park space. In the decades after the 1871 Fire, Chicago was laid out by city fathers whose motto was “Make No Small Plans.”
Perhaps Chicago authorities should encourage Chicagoans who feel they must socialize to socialize outdoors?
