Inexplicably, theme parks such as Disney’s are exempt from California’s social distancing advisory. Or, maybe not so inexplicably, since casinos also are exempt. Newsom says it’s due to “the complexity of their unique circumstances”, which is a euphemism you should file away for the next time you’re a governor trying not to offend major business interests in your state, I guess. (Disney employees are screwed, though.) Bob Iger even had the gall to say this: “If you think about the world today, what we create has never been more necessary or more important.”
