They don't like people, and this is an unusually good excuse to ban them from the shop and just let the dogs come in (they like dogs)

So is "embargo" some kind of legal term that can be used by domestic, local governments (not being sarcastic, I actually don't know)? I've never heard of it used in this manner before:

Embargo? Isn't that some kind of snail cooked in garlic and butter?

No, it's when a ship leaves on a trip.  When the ship gets there, the passengers are said to disembargo.

Ben, lately (20+ years?) there seems to be a large number of words that are being used in unusual ways --sometimes as their tertiary and quaternary definitions, sometimes with no relationship to any definitions.  But that's cool, dude, like, it's part of, like, it's normal.

Agreed.  One of my main peeves re:word meaning shifts is "story".  I may have griped here before about it.  Facebook posts are stories. >bullshit!<  I see outdoor advertising signs for the ad company saying "let us help you tell your story".

I'm actually most concerned with the legality of using that term in that way. AFAIK, it's generally an international thing for punitive measures against whole countries. It's a little scary to think rinky dink localities are somehow co-opting it to violate the constitution.

That comes straight out of corporate marketing departments.

The question asked in retail when setting up your department is always "what story are you telling?". The in store displays, signage, the print and video media advertising are all in alignment to "tell the story" to help sell the product.

Now we're to be outraged that Donald Trump played golf on a holiday weekend.

https://www.dailywire.com/news/biden-hits-trump-for-golfing-trump-he-left-out-some-key-facts

When I saw a headline on this from CNN, it cracked me up. They think everything Trump does, especially with the pandemic, is wrong and racist will kill people. But it's apparently very important that he stays in the White House doing the wrong, racist things, and killing people.

Considering how little truth there is in most advertising, I can see calling ads "stories."

Protestors in Kentucky hang the governor in effigy:  https://www.courier-journal.com/story/news/politics/2020/05/24/second-amendment-supporters-protest-covid-19-restrictions-capitol/5250571002/

Quote
It began as a celebration of constitutional rights but turned into a protest of coronavirus restrictions and Beshear’s administration. Folks toted their guns and waved American and “Don’t tread on me” flags. Taps honored the fallen, and free flags were given to veterans from all military branches.

Ed Bruce, who carried a replica colonial-era gun with a tag that read “1st Assault Rifle,” said he came out to make a point: government shouldn’t control what types of guns he or other law-abiding citizens carry, he said.

So the reporter has never heard of the Gadsden flag.

That would never happen around here (N. TX).  Most people, including retail employees*, didn't/don't wear masks when they're in a store.

*At least they didn't until their employer started requiring one be worn.  Not all retail employers in this area require wearing a mask while working.

Since they were all breaking the six foot rule to yell and cuss at her about the mask rule, I reckon they would have had it coming.

I think we're stuck in mud. It smells like something a whole lot worse than wet dirt, though. Got a bit of a barn yard odor to it.
