Howdy Y'all! 

I am one of many people who believe that the City of Austin, the great state of Texas and the very high functioning organization SXSW will do the right thing.

The right thing to do is to stay on track with the SXSW festival. 

To put this into perspective: Last year there were more than 2,300 flu-related deaths reported in Texas, but yet there was no call to end SXSW. As of this writing there are ZERO Covid-19 deaths in TX and no cases reported in greater Austin area.

Health officials, the Mayor of Austin and people much smarter than me have deduced that the risks are minimal to the constituents of ATX and to conference participants. I believe in Science and I believe in Scientists and I also really like having fun - so let's do this! 

FYI: there are currently ZERO petitions to shut down the rodeo.

If all the people wringing their hands about SXSW cared so much about the virus coming to Austin then perhaps you should consider the rodeo. It's overlapping with the SXSW dates. Coronavirus Cowboys will be playing live. Also, Willie Nelson!

There are many people who have pinned their hopes and dreams on this festival - film premieres, musical debuts, industry mixers as well as the many hard working people in ATX  who need the paycheck to support their families.

Let's have fun at SXSW. Practice good hygiene, perfect your fist bumps (no hand shaking) and follow all the recommendations of health officials:

I'm calling on the people of the world to end the dystopian vision of the future and have fun while we can. The world may indeed be ending but not before we have a bit of fun.

Please join forces to:

STOP THE MADNESS of STOPPING SXSW.

 

Yes, the COVID 19 sounds scary and the news is relentless - I get your fear.

No need to circle the wagons...ok maybe at the rodeo.

Thanks for reading and signing & sharing this petition y'all.
