One of the many galling things about Sickness Kabuki is that – per Leona Helmsley – is that only the little people are expected to perform it.
A particularly egregious example of this was posted by the owner of the Pineapple Hill Grill and Saloon in LA, Angela Marsden, who took video of her closed by decree of Gesundheitsfuhrer Newsome outdoor dining area adjacent to the open-for-business outdoor food service tents erected for the gustatory indulgence of "essential" Hollywood grandees:
"I'm losing everything," Marsden said. "Everything I own is being taken away from me." Tearfully, she points to her outdoor patio dining area – where it is "unsafe" to eat. Then she points across the street to the Craft Services Tents and tables erected to feed people involved with a movie production – where it is "safe" to eat.
Gesundheitsfuhrer Newsome exempted people involved with the making of movies from his Gesundheitsbefehls as "essential."
