The new “cancel culture“

I’ve noticed a trend: A ton of major entertainment events were scheduled at the very beginning of the Delta surge, a time when the predominant narrative was that it was more dangerous than ever to go places and enjoy life. Weeks later, they started cancelling them. Sure, makes sense. They didn’t know. This stuff had been in the works for months, most likely. I’ll certainly … Continue reading The new “cancel culture“
