Brickbat: The Boob Tube

Los Angeles County officials have allowed outdoor dining for the first time in two months. The county barred restaurants last year from outside dining to combat the coronavirus. But the reopening comes with some continuing restrictions to reduce the spread of the virus, including requiring that tables be no less than eight feet apart and seat no more than six people. Oh, and TVs must be turned off or removed. Officials say allowing people to watch TV could cause restaurant patios to become overcrowded.

  5. …TVs must be turned off or removed.

    Even tuned to any of the news networks who carry the water for these kinds of arbitrary rules?

    1. The true reason behind this edict is because CNN is no longer running at airports and they are afraid restaurants will be emboldened to not show the proper propaganda line 24×7.

  6. Outdoor dining in February? Something tells me it won’t be crowded, no matter how many TVs there are.

    1. Have a cup of coffee and try again; Los Angeles County.

    We ship directly to your door! Quality medical-grade marijuana! With the price of gas nowadays, we can save you money. We also offer discounts for customers with a medical condition and prescription.

  8. One imagines “officials” are also banning music, comedy, and thought because such things “could cause” overcrowding.

    1. So you have the designated chosen in the meeting room; and a rousing game of “what if” and “about” ensues. Lest any one of these question the sense of any of the proposed [soon to be mandated] rules, the appropriate response to get them in line it “well I’m sorry you don’t care about people dying”

      1. How can anyone not care? It’s the only state where true equity and equality are realized. Frankly not wanting people to die is simply cruel and inhumane. After all, the bugs and bacteria that consume the corpse are not at all concerned about any “privilege” the deceased may or may not have experienced. Sure, the body may be treated “better” by the burial or burner team but neither the body nor the bugs care.

  16. Sounds like they are modelling their policies on those of Bomont, only a dancing Kevin Bacon can save them now.

  17. So they just need a streaming app on the tablet they use for ordering in addition to the obligatory child distraction app. Actually, it could be the same app with a Barney(?) to sports toggle.
