    Trivializing and Making jokes about fair food on a very important article regarding free Covid 19 testing is definitely a valuable use of time.

      A large-scale public testing site is long overdue for our county, and I support it 100%. However, the location opens itself up to some light-hearted humor and memories of more simple times, times when we could stroll on down the midway and breath the earthly aromas of the 4H exhibit while shoving sugar-laced fried treats down our sweaty mid-summer gullets.

      My sole purpose was to excoriate and ridicule you.
      Sorry for any confusion.
