Seating Tight at October 24 Noem/Sanford Superspreader Concert

Are you hoping to crowd into the Denny Sanford Premier Center for Governor Kristi Noem‘s Coronavirus Showcase Concert with Chris Young next month? Better hurry—seating appears to be limited:

In an added twist, the indoor space where as many as 5,000 people will be gathering with no mask requirement and no guarantee of social distancing is named after T. Denny Sanford. That is the same billionaire philanthropist who poured more than $1 billion into the health care outfit that also bears his name.

He may not be aware that his name is doubly connected to what the seating chart suggests could be a superspreading event. The upper decks are closed, technically limiting the crowd to 50 percent capacity. But several of the open sections are already all but filled. Only one ticket is available in a section with 514 seats [Michael Daly, “This Superspreader Concert Is Brought to You by a Health Care Firm,” Daily Beast, 2020.09.21].

Sanford Health is sponsoring this contagion opportunity, which may produce direct increases in their daily business. Paging Dr. Bastiat….

    We’re simply not getting sick or dying quickly enough. Superspreaders are necessary! Besides, they make her look brave and bold to all the people who don’t live here.

    Well that’s a novel way to market healthcare. Kissy Gnome is all puckered up to give her all to support the Liar on the hill, meanwhile back in Pierre covid 19 is ravaging the high school and the women’s prison not to mention the quandary of who is carrying on the duties of the AG while the coverup is developing. Kissy can’t be bothered with South Dakota concerns while the most dishonest and despicable president in the history of our country so desperately needs her lips on his keister.

    Very good play on words Mike Livingston, dealing with the novel corona virus “Well that’s a novel way to market healthcare.”

    Sanford has been in the dumps about bringing more money into their system since the hydroxychloroquine grift pooped the bed in their hospital. This is it! In town and close to the facilities, what could be better.

    Do suckers who attend waive their rights to see their own doctors if/when they become diseased?

    If they are obligated to go to Sanford that would make a nice racket.

    “Attentive farmers” has already proven to be an oxymoron.

    Concert just got cancelled today. Sanford folks must’ve finally realized how stupid they were being.

    Flipper, is this so? If it is, that will put a wrench in GNOem’s plan to beat out North Dakota in the number 1 spot for trump virus infected numbers. Wow, that’s gonna leave a mark.

    Jerry, yes, Sanford Health sent out a tweet at 4:23 saying concert was kaput.

    Killing the ACA/Obamacare, must’ve made Sanford pause on how to take care of several hundred more trump virus cases, and get their money. Whoever gets the slot on the Court will be under contract to gut the ACA/Obamacare. Abortion, not so, that is too important to kill right now as they will need it for the mid terms. These guys are as easy to read as a postage stamp.

    Killing the Obamacare is concerning, Mr. jerry. The fellows that run Sanford Health like Mr. Kelby and Ms. Everist, she formerly of the legislatures, are no slovenly fools. They are carefully measuring where they stand.

    60 a day in July.

    120-150 a day in August.

    445 positive covid infections on the 1st day of fall.

    Are you going to do something Noem. Like govern?
