This killjoy may just save your life.
After seeing “wall-to-wall spring breakers on the beach” flouting social distancing guidance, attorney/activist Daniel Uhlfelder decided there was no better warning system than death personified.
When a Walmart Grim Reaper costume didn’t look enough like the real thing, he commissioned a custom cloak-and-scythe and hit the beaches of the Florida panhandle for “thoughtful conversation” about the dangers of COVID-19. His response to hecklers? “See you soon.”
Still, he regards his efforts as fairly moderate: “I’m not wearing the costume at night,” he pointed out. “And I’m not in Michigan with a gun and a tactical weapon. Those people are scary."
