HeyJackass! brings us the super-spreader event details from this past weekend. Shootapalooza Weekend
After taking last year off in order to protect Grandma, the festival has returned so that suburban teen and 20-somethings can get shitfaced and/or overdose and partake in an expensive ambulance ride to Northwestern. Meanwhile, another festival of sorts is never cancelled and will proceed to put in a solid audition for the headliner weekend of the year.
Final Shootapalooza tally: 10 killed, 47 wounded
Shootapalooza 2020: 10 killed, 28 wounded

The image above is of the crowds at Lollapalooza in Chicago's Grant Park. Click on it for a somewhat larger version. Mayor Groot (Lori Lightfoot, that is) waited until AFTER the city collected all the revenue from Lollapalooza before she reinstated COVID-19 restrictions. Because of science. I'm sure her reason was based on science, and had absolutely nothing to do with the sad state of Chicago's finances. (Though the multi-billion-dollar handout that we, the taxpayers of the USA, gave Chicago should help with the money problems.)
