lol ... indeed.

I have some business connections with people in the Vegas casinos. They called to tell me that they were reopening, but everyone had to wear masks ...

... except if they are eating, drinking or smoking.

I nearly fell off my chair laughing.

The number of bikers a particular county 'sent' to Sturgis is going to be strongly correlated with the number of bikers in a county, and it seems a pretty easy stereotype that the number of bikers would be strongly correlated with the number of anti-authority types who would eschew masks and flout social distancing restrictions. So the statistical uptick in all the home counties of the Sturgians is probably mostly caused by similar-attitude neighbors who stayed at home to do the work of superspreadin'

Interesting also, the end of the Slate article links two other studies by the same authors, who appear to be saying that BLM protests and Trump's Tulsa rally, did NOT cause infectious breakouts. Looks like they're saying in both cases, offsetting factors were more significant: when there's controversial protests or rallies going on, everybody that's not participating are more likely to hunker down at home.
Can't we just use quantum mechanics to create a parallel reality where Sturgis never happened and then compare?
