Why aren’t they shut down? Restaurants are closed so should they.

More dimwit stupidity right there, just like Nancy palooza wanting 40 million for the Kennedy center in the covid stimulus, this shouldn’t even be a question. Shut. It. Down.

Poor babies, an unneeded and definitely not essential service. Businesses all over the country lost way more and they aren’t getting any help. Get unemployment like everybody else has too.

but if a ballet company folds, good grief the time and effort to re-create it, vs a smaller amount to keep it alive.

not necessarily a bad idea given the scope of the program, billions and billions.

but kc ballet been hurt by devon carney we like a ballet theater now.

these performers may just quit the field and get grinder jobs in the bullshit economy - is that what you resentful D bags really want?
