00h UTC; FRIDAY, 25 JANUARY 2013: Fans of The Great Minnesota Get-Together (as in the Minnesota State Fair), rejoice and be glad this day: The State Fair's Board of Managers, as supervises the whole 12-day affair ending annually on Labour Day, voted at their annual meeting to ban smorking outright on the State Fairgrounds, save for Designated Smorking Areas, with effect from TGMnGT 2013; previously, smorking was banned only in Fairgrounds buildings and the seating areas of entertainment venues, in particular the Grandstand, the Bandshell and the Heritage Square stage. Details on the Designated Smorking Areas there are to be announced later; as well, cigarette sales will be limited to Steichen's Grocery in the Commissary.

So we can do without the platitudes some on the Far Right have about "endangering individual liberties and freedom," let alone "cultural heritage and folkways" excusing habitual smorking.

Your Correspondent would be interested in knowing the Mormon response to ongoing air pollution problems in the Salt Lake Basin wherein Salt Lake City is situate over recent weeks, what with dense ice fog and industrial and automotive exhaust fumes creating hazardous pollution which has doctor's offices there working on overdrive in dealing with respiratory and breathing difficulties. In fact, said doctors are calling on local officials to:
  • limit industrial and power plant exhaust emissions;
  • reduce freeway speeds to reduce auto exhaust emissions; and
  • suspend fares on the local transit system in the interim.
How knoweth we that dogwhistle anti-Semitism isn't slipping into recent criticism of Hollywood seeking to divert attention among the "REAL AmeriKKKans" from the role of high-firepower weapons vis-a-vis Recent Unfortunate Events, and their contributing factors? And isn't such actually a back-door way towards pushing for establishing an Amerikanischer Leikultur which sees Branson, MO as the defining litmus test therefor, such to be regarded as "grassroots," "organic," "REAL AmeriKKKan," "consecrated by the Holy Blood and Soil of the Amerikanischer Volk," all that pap?

No wonder Glenn Beck has lost all credibility beyond a hard-core audience of the poor, undereducated and easily-exploitable with the crudest of patriotism to match: Witness where his online TV show (also available via Dish Network) the other day discussed conspiracy theories about--conspiracy theories?!! (Yes, boys and girls, you read that right: Meneer Beck hath it that the Obama Administration is creating "conspiracy theories" about Recent Unfortunate Events to divert attention from an emerging "Deep State"-powered agenda to usurp the Constitution and, with it, Our National and Sovereign Identity as a Peculiar Among the Nations.)

How do we know projection isn't really coming into play with conservative prolefeed claims in McCarthyite stylee about "super-secretive Muslim/homosexual infiltration of the Corridors of Power" with the eventual aim of "betraying Our Dear Lovely Nation to the New World Order," with Loss of Our Traditional National and Sovereign Identity, Antient and Peculiar, in the process? (In effect, replace "Muslim" or "homosexual" in the original atrocity prolefeed with "Tea Party," "John Bircher" or "Christian Patriot," depending on your mindset, for a more accurate and realistic message.)
