Big crowd in South Dakota . . .

. . . no, not Trump's piddling 7,500 at Mount Rushmore. Just 51 miles north is Sturgis, South Dakota where, five weeks from now, they're expecting half a million people.

August 5 thru 16, the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally will take place with the full approval and blessing of the City Council.

While many outdoor summer events have been canceled or greatly modified for the year of COVID, the 2020 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is throttling forward. The City Council approved the event on Monday night with an 8 to 1 vote, bringing a final answer to weeks of uncertainty about the festival.

Last year's official rally attendance was 490,000. That's about seventy times more bigly than Trump's teeny little thing.

Were protests encouraged and sanctioned by government entities? Or were they tolerated due to first amendment rights?
