The clubs aren’t being altruistic about not reopening. There’s no money in it. If they could make money they’d open. Clubs and concerts are notoriously low margin. Clubs make it on the bar and larger concerts most of the door goes to the act(s). When they can make money they’ll open if allowed.

We’ve had similar restrictions here for 5 months. Depending on the local infection rate it’s 25% with max of 50 or 250. Right now we’re back to 50 max. Distanced patrons seated, no more than two in a group with a 25’ “moat” between the stage and performers (that takes out most small venues) ventilation has to pass inspection. No food or drink in some places. Masks for everyone crew and talent included. Regular on the spot testing for artists and crew. Strict cleaning regime. Here what is running (mostly comedy and topless shows) is being subsidized by the resorts and/or the show producers.

@4 - you forgot dildos.

I feel bad for Gorilla Glue Girl but just so everyone knows they're trying to get paid to go away - there isn't anything resembling a winnable case.

@9 She'll argue forseeable misuse, and the stuff does look little a like a hairspray. To an 8 year old. As a 40 year old, maybe a tougher sell.

OTOH, there may be some PR value ponying up for her 'restoration' an having her as a front person: "see how strong our glue is!"

I've always been amazed at the "blue hairs" ability to pull a 32 ounce spray can of aqua net out of 6" purse.

The moment it became clear last year that everyone should stay home and businesses should close for several weeks, the government should have halted (or simply paid for) all rents and mortgages and states should have mobilized their national guard units to set up some sort of food distribution centers.

Businesses around the country could have rode out the worst of the pandemic without being forced to stay open because they have to pay their rent.

@12 in many parts of the country, it was not clear that everyone should stay home. Not everywhere is a liberal city.

@13 and THAT was a failure of the Trump administration. They needed to make it clear. Had they done so we wouldn’t be where we are are now. It was up to Trump to unify the dipshit cult of his. But he deliberately used the Pandemic as a wedge to further divide the nation and now there is no going back.

@14 although I hate Trump, I find myself defending him often against accusations that aren't true (because IMO that devalues his actual shortcomings/criminality/etc and leads to the situation where we are now, in that he won't be impeached yet again and stimulus will languish while this quixotic quest continues) - but on this one, I absolutely agree. It didn't need to be the case that mask wearing and combatting the virus needed to be politicized along left/right lines to begin with, and Trump absolutely did that (in addition to outright lying about COVID science) for unclear reasons (other than being a massive narcissist who assumed the purpose of the virus was to denigrate/elevate him personally)
