I respectfully differ with my colleague. Performers, whether athlete, musician or dancer, are not required to perform during a pandemic because essential employees work. That is a false equivalence. Any performer making such a decision is neither entitled, spoiled nor a brat.
So devastating to learn of the passing of Chris Dufresne, longtime journalist for the L.A. Times. Dufresne was such a great and thoughtful writer, and one of the very best in the business. Deepest sympathies to his family and friends. RIP. https://t.co/WWciJOjSgo
