Some advice for West Virginia on the edge of the Bridge Day precipice. Organizers should set up the roadblocks as usual and add checkpoints for COVID-19 vaccination. If you can prove you are fully vaccinated, you can pass on to the festival.

If not, you will get vaccinated on the spot, scheduled for the follow-up shot and you will be turned away with some fascinating information about the risks we face such as: It is true that vaccination doesn’t guarantee deliverance; 3,441 West Virginians have died from COVID-19, of those deceased, 3,321 were not vaccinated; and spyware, microchips, satan and liberalism are not included in the vaccine.

Every one of our precious freedoms is conditional. Each depends upon our respect for others, who have the same rights and responsibilities. Helping each other to enjoy our freedom is the only way to keep it.
