It took me awhile (short attention span theater here) but I finally finished the article. My experience in the bateys was in 2018 and 2019, all before the Wuhan flu.
It was not near as bad as what was mentioned in the article, but it wasn't fun and games either.
The article mentioned a few politicians, including bubba. I would bet that none of them ever saw a batey and wouldn't know one if it bit them on their fat pompous asses. The Fanjuls have to be some nasty evil people.
Thanks Mike for posting this. It's very much appreciated.
