Ya Black people have different traditions than us white people. This is a really good video that talks about it. And the title actually is a bit clickbaity as the reason is not what it makes you think it is...well not completely. Have a watch

That’s Ask a Mortician! I’ve heard her before as a guest on podcasts. She’s quite interesting. She’s written several books.

I was at the summit of Snoqualmie Pass yesterday, and spotted one of those Raptor toy haulers. 3 mixed sex couples, obviously working hard at being hardcore bikers, heading to Sturgis.

Mrs_G worked for a commodities trader like that for a while. She was his gal M-F (and sometimes Saturdays and Sundays too), did all the import / export paperwork, taxes, etc. He demanded a $500 dress code (no Kmart office clothes), fetished over his Harley's, and went on hajj to Sturgis every year.

When I'd head back to Oreegun from 'sconsin every year, I'd stay in Rapid City the first night and grab breakfast at Sturgis the next morning. I remember where the place was, but I forgot the name. Good food at a reasonable price. It was always weeks apart from the tricycle festival, though.

I always assumed it was so everyone could come up from down South. The Man's family seems to take qt the very least a week. Like Andy I'm used to having someone buried within 4 days or so. My Daddy died on July 7th and we had his wake on the 11th and funeral and burial on the 12th. It probably would have been the 10th and 11th, but my l'il sister's birthday was the 11th and I didn't want to have the funeral that day.

The Twin Cities has the largest or second-largest Hmong community in the US. There's a cultural tradition prohibiting simultaneous funerals in the same space, so the service can't be held in a traditional funeral home. Plus, the length of a Hmong funeral is determined by the decedent's age/status in the community. So, young people - usually 2-3 days. A respected elder's funeral ceremony - 7-10 days.

There's also very few Hmong funeral homes in the metro area, due to more cultural considerations regarding location, which also often ends up butting heads with neighborhood opposition. (The opposition is for three reasons: 1. Drive-by shootings outside the funerals are/were not uncommon; 2. Parking issues - nearly the whole community turns out, making it a days-long parking crisis; 3. Since it goes on for days, the kids get bored, and their parents let them go outside and roam. Gangs of roaming kids = more theft and vandalism.) Anyhow, what this means is deceased Hmong can sit in refrigeration for days to weeks waiting their turn for their funeral to be held in one of the few facilities.

There's a Hmong funeral home in my neighborhood. It's busy every weekend. The management has arranged to rent some space in nearby stores' parking lots, and to run a shuttle service from the parking lot of a nearby school. Over the years, it seems like the number of extended funerals has gone down. I expect that the traditional days-long service is coming up against the reality of the American five-day work week, and successive generations are probably more willing to adapt and have a shorter funeral for themselves.
I've heard this bull before.

Charlotte Observer: 4 people at the RNC in Charlotte test positive for coronavirus, county says

Two attendees and two support staff at the Republican National Convention tested positive for COVID-19, Mecklenburg County officials announced Friday morning.

Those people were instructed to isolate immediately, and close contacts were also told to quarantine, officials said in a statement.

The disclosures come after county health officials raised concerned about a lack of social distancing and mask wearing during the business meeting of the RNC in Charlotte on Monday — despite strict coronavirus protocols that were supposed to be followed.

But the public may need to wait weeks for an “after-action” report detailing the true scope of infections linked to the RNC. For now, Mecklenburg Public Health Director Gibbie Harris has said the convention posed no infection risk to the greater Charlotte area.

“There have been no known incidences during the 5 days of RNC meetings in Charlotte where the public has potentially been exposed to an individual involved in the event (local or otherwise) who may have tested positive for COVID,” Harris said in a statement Tuesday.

Charlotte’s portion of the RNC was a dramatically scaled-down convention for a spectacle once expected to draw more than 50,000 people to the Queen City.

WaPo: Few masks, little distancing: Trump celebrates at crowded White House party largely devoid of coronavirus precautions


President Trump celebrated his renomination Thursday with a crowded party at the White House that offered a jarring contrast with a nation that is still widely shut down over fears of the coronavirus pandemic whose spread remains uncontrolled.

More than 1,500 supporters poured onto the South Lawn for his formal acceptance speech to cap the Republican National Convention, and most were not wearing masks, even though they were seated closely together in white folding chairs.

The overwhelming majority of guests were not administered rapid coronavirus tests, Trump campaign and convention officials said, despite their relative proximity to the president and other White House officials. A White House official said it was logistically unfeasible to test such a large number of people.

Two attendees said in interviews that they were not offered tests and were not even put through a more basic screening, such as being questioned whether they had any symptoms, such as coughs, or taking their temperature. They spoke on the condition of anonymity to talk frankly. ...

Medical authorities said the White House setting offered potential dangers of community spread and set another bad example at a time when most infectious-disease experts are warning that the public must continue to wear masks, maintain social distancing and limit large gatherings.

https://www.cnn.com/2020/08/28/politics ... index.html
(CNN)A member of Defense Secretary Mark Esper's team traveling in the Indo-Pacific region who helped handle his trip arrangements has tested positive for Covid-19, three US officials told CNN on Friday.

After several hours of not providing any information, a defense official told CNN "no one with the Secretary has tested positive, and neither the Secretary nor the traveling party have been exposed."
Two officials said the individual had helped with Esper's travel arrangements. The officials added that members of the delegation traveling with the secretary have been briefed on the matter.
A defense official told CNN that the staffer was on the advance team for the trip and did not come into contact with Esper or Pentagon staff traveling with him.

Those 44 are just the ones detected so far after returning to Minnesota. I'm sure there are plenty more in other states. The city of sturgis offered free testing for residents the week after the rally. Only 650 people took advantage of the offer, despite having enough capacity for 1300 tests. All who were tested were asymptomatic, 4% tested positive.

https://www.keloland.com/news/healthbea ... gis-rally/

So if we assume that 4% of the apparently ~500,000 people who attended the Sturgis rally were positive, that's 20,000 infected people spreading across the United States.

IMPOTUS is going nuts at his NH rally, it's just all grievance and lies. He's totally unhinged. Must have seen the ratings and horrible reviews. Sounds like a big crowd, they are screaming and whining and moaning. Mark your calendar for Sep 9-12, that'll be 2 weeks from the super spreader events.

I work in Londonderry and travel north (past the airport) to go home. Normally when a president or frontrunner visits Manchester, traffic is far worse than normal. Delays and congestion everywhere.

Today? It was so normal that I totally forgot king dipshit was in town until I read the news this evening.
