EVERY DAY IS HALLOWEEN
... with COVID lurking on every street corner, behind every door, hiding in every crevice, poised to jump out and yell "BOO!"
My Uncle Jim, who is 5 years older than I, and my now-deceased cousin Bob -- to whom Jim was uncle but also good buddy (they being close in age) -- went door-knocking on Hallowe'en with no costumes ("kid stuff"), just masks, shopping bags for carting away their loot, and a rattled-off well-worn rhyming mantra:
Black and Gold, Black and Gold, Nothing in Between -
When the World Turns Black and Gold, then it's Hallowe'en.
In those days it wasn't "trick or treat", it was more a case of having to give to get. So some kids tap-danced, others sang songs, and Jim and Bob, now being above childish things, recited the poem in unison, rapidly and monotonously, but nevertheless given credit for effort and rewarded with goodies.
The complete poem, attributed to Nancy Byrd Turner (1880-1971) is here.
Many years later, when I lived in Ottawa, some fellow apartment dwellers decided one year to dress up in costumes to greet the kids that would arrive for treats. I own a nice collection of eerie music and my job was simply to keep it playing all evening on my laptop.
At the last moment, I decided to dress up as a witch, to add a bit more spookiness. Yes, that's me at the bottom of this page. Scary huh? (I hope the photo on my About Page is a bit less terrifying.)
Well, the really weird thing was that kids would come and sit beside me and chat me up as if I were a nice, normal person. In other words, nothing about Hallowe'en scared them; not the music, not the ugly witch. It was, as we say now, "all good".
Nobody ever feared Hallowe'en -- until now. You can't trust anything out there! There could be invisible COVID on those treats!!!!! Nevertheless, Hallowe'en began early this year, at school opening. Turns out that even your friends are dangerous; so is your teacher; so might also be the pencil you pick up or the paper you write on. Geez, I'm wanting my Mommy just thinking about it!
Hallowe'en 2020 is the spookiest ever because our kids were taught to be afraid of just about everything, well in advance of the season. They now know there's something invisible lurking on every street corner, hiding inside even your best friends and favourite relatives, lurking in candy from strangers, that could kill you when least expected.
And even if I dressed up as a kindly angel they would not, could not sit close beside me.
There's no longer any fun at all in masks, especially the sinister black ones that politicians have taken to hiding behind on auspicious occasions -- and forgetting all about at other times. Covid has brought into the spotlight those true "leaders" who, seeing themselves as elite, don't tend to sport the colourful masks you see in supermarkets (except maybe Dr. Fauci, a real trend-setter); their face-coverings are often black, which is weird because their basic fixation is gold (money, moola, wealth, riches ...) and everything they think and do derives from that.
Black and Gold, Black and Gold, nothing in between.
They play the game; they recite the lines most guaranteed to produce the required result, and for some, no rehearsal is needed; it just comes naturally. Yes, they do care about kids; their own, presumably. But if some other kids have to suffer long-term emotional effects because their parents took the meme seriously, them's the breaks. Nothing in between.
Pardon my annoying skepticism, but when Science Magazine wanted to aid in making the public accept the mask as a virtual body part, it chose a somewhat questionable cheerleader: the "top Chinese Scientist", George Gao, director-general of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
How do we know he's "the top"? Well, SciMag doesn't seem to want to say it, but the attendees at Event 201 would say, oh for sure; he was among the "Players" at the big Event that kick-started the momentum toward a mandatory vaccine climax.
Here's Dr. Gao's handsome face and prodigious technical output, not to mention various awards, and including that he has applied for and obtained more than 25 UK, US, and Chinese patents.
Make what you will of his Bio, but the word "patents" gives me a chill.
Here's an essay by Mark Crispin Miller, PhD, who also has credentials up the "yim-yam", as an aunt of mine used to say -- and he didn't attend Event 201: and so doesn't have to prattle the party line:
