CHATTER AWAY: Overnight Open Thread

Deadline reports:

Onetime Growing Pains star Kirk Cameron hosted yet another Christmas caroling protest with unmasked singers in close proximity. Local news reports pin the number of attendees at about 100. The event was held in the parking lot of The Oaks Mall in Thousand Oaks. It’s the third such event the Fireproof actor has held this December.

Meanwhile, Covid-19 is hitting Ventura County — where the mall is located — hard. The county recently reported its highest-ever number of daily new Covid-19 infections, and the test positivity rate on Tuesday was 12.6%, which is higher than that of adjacent L.A. County.
