Sure, dumb and dumber is a cliche, but how else can you describe the domino-like parade of stupid, callous behavior? New governor? So what? Nothing changed.

Dumb and Dumber, the Sequence
UPDATE, 9-12-21: Is the third time the charm? Maybe. Yesterday, RIOC amended their disabled access signs, redirecting visitors to the appropriate rear entrance. The signs are poorly placed, well inside the grounds, instead of at the entrance where they’d save steps.
But with this crew, we’ll take whatever we can get.
END OF UPDATE
A couple of weeks back, we reported on how RIOC sidewalk construction crews sent wheelchairs, pedestrians and stroller mom’s direct into oncoming traffic.
Then, not to be outdone, we caught RIOC directing disabled visitors at Blackwell House straight into bushes or construction, no other alternative.
Stupid and uncaring, yes. But when you consider that this is outside the door RIOC president/CEO Shelton J. Haynes uses entering and leaving his office every day, it approaches breathtaking.
But if you want dumb and dumber, the state agency that never makes a mistake went one giant step further. A photo shot today…
A new governor seems to have made no difference. An EADD outbreak fully emptied RIOC’s capacity for thinking.
