I didn't know whether to post this here, or to go to the Rant thread...

Someone's been scattering nails on the streets in Grafton, WI, a Milwaukee suburb.  The only party with a possible rational reason would be neighboring Cedarberg's Chamber of Commerce ;D, but I don't think so.  They're both pleasant towns.

The most probable 'party' is someone that fixes flats and/or sells tires.

The local Midas has said they will fix flats for free. More likely scenario is a Karen that was told by the police that it's not illegal to leave home.
A plan is just a list of things that doesn't happen.

When I read this I remember the lyrics of the Grateful Dead's "Foolish heart"

"Shun a friend
Shun a brother and a friend
Never look
Never look around the bend
Or check a weatherchart
Sign the Mona Lisa
With a spraycan, call it art
But never give your love, my friend
Unto a foolish heart"


Giving a priceless painting to a furnisher refinisher is just foolish. Hell I am a journeyman level furnisher finisher and would never accept a job like that.
Freedom without regulations that protect the general good is nothing less than anarchy by the rich.

As if we didn't need more troubles in the world ...

https://www.jsonline.com/story/news/2020/07/09/fond-du-lac-fatal-motorcycle-crash-driver-makes-initial-court-appearance-thursday/5404674002/

A guy intentionally ran his truck into a Harley rider and killed him under the assumption that the rider was white--it's being charged as a hate crime.

The defendant appears to be Hispanic, and also appears to be suffering from a mental illness.  He apparently believed that white people were poisoning him.  He told a LEO that he assumed a Harley rider would be white, and that's why he ran the biker down.

IMHO, it's more of a case of untreated mental illness rather than hate. 

It's a sick, sad world.
