Here’s the latest reader question, along with my reply!

Lisa writes: We’d welcome you in Mississippi! Sure we have hurricanes, but there are still a lot of good-old fashioned decent people here. The great thing is liberals thinks MS is so awful, that they won’t move here, so we may be one of the last places infected. Love your work – and I’m not a car enthusiast.

My reply: I’ve been through Mississippi and agree – it’s a beautiful state. But I’m not familiar with the political lay of the land. How goes the Diaper Regime there? Are you allowed – god, that word – to go shopping without Diapering? Are your businesses allowed (ugh) to be open and if they are, are they open normally?

Finally, how do you guys feel about orange Trans Ams?

  1. There’s more normal people in the rural towns. There weren’t any customers diapered at the Tractor Supply in Wiggins a couple of weeks ago, and it was pretty busy in there.

    • Hi Handler,

      My county – Floyd, in SW Virginia – is a microcosm of the problem. In town – one stoplight – the place is Diaper Central because the local government is controlled by Northern Virginia expats who are turning the place into where they left. But outside town, few Diaper. The new conflict, then,is between the urban and ex-urban, city vs. country.

  2. Requisite old joke:

    “Two Italian men get on a bus…
    They sit down and engage in an animated conversation.
    The lady sitting behind them ignores them at first, but her attention is galvanized when she hears one of the men say the following:
    “Emma come first. Den I come. Den two asses come together. I come once-a-more. Two asses, they come together again. I come again and pee twice. Then I come one lasta time.”
    “You foul-mouthed swine,” retorted the lady indignantly. “In this country we don’t talk about our sex lives in public!”
    “Hey, coola down lady,” said the man. “Who talkin’ abouta sexa? I’m a justa tellin’ my frienda how to spella ‘Mississippi’.””

  3. I have some family in MS and can affirm that the sickness kabuki has taken root there just as deeply as in many other states. Most MS localities already had mask mandates in place, even though the state mandate came somewhat later on, and compliance is damn near 100%. Also where I’ve been in MS, they’ve threatened mask enforcement on individuals.

    Traveling between IL and MS, I’ve been constantly reminded of the phrase, “You can run but you can’t hide”. About the only panacea in that trip is when I go through MO. MO doesn’t have a state mask mandate and their rest stops don’t have any signage to that effect. Still, most of the larger municipalities have some sort of regulation in place, but in the smaller ones you can go about with your naked face and not be alone. Case in point, the last time I traveled thru Caruthersville MO, the public library was actually open with no mask sign whatsoever and only about 50% muzzles covered.
