I loaded up the trailer and rolled to the fairgrounds for the Indy 1500 Gun and Knife Show.┬á My friend Jack, there to help, runs over and warns me not to unload.
It seems they were waiting for word on whether or not the show would go on. They'd been calling the fairgrounds all week, and told things were fine. Then, suddenly, there's debate. After we all arrive, but not after we start setup at least. And I'm local (well, under 50 miles), so there's that.
We hang around waiting, along with the Flower and Patio Show people, and I understand why the governor had pause. Who wants 10,000 Angry Karens calling your office to complain?
Ultimately, he even stayed late to ponder this matter, because the notification of closure came down at 1626.
Show is cancelled.┬á At least it's early spring, not the Comic Con, the race, or GenCon.
Since I'm not a morally bankrupt, mentally retarded, intellectually corrupt, pathetic pussy, I'm not blaming the President for this.
There's a good chance in a month it will all be a bunch of nothing. If so, it's because action like this mitigated the threat, not because the threat didn't exist.
Meantime, I have lots of stuff to sell online. I have wares if you have coin.
