Springsteen fandom and vaccine passports

“Lee owns a restaurant in Jersey City called the ‘Bruce Tramps Bar & Grill.’ … Lee has decided to require as a condition of admission to his restaurant that you show a ticket stub [a live Springsteen performance] …. Now imagine all The Boss haters out there. They complain. Why should Lee, and any Bruce Tramps, be able to restrict others from Lee’s bar & grill? They take it to the state. The governor and state legislature …. pass a law. From this point forward, any business operating in New Jersey ‘may not require patrons or customers to provide any documentation certifying Springsteen concert attendance to gain access to, entry upon, or service from the business operations in this state.’ … substitute ‘COVID-19 vaccination or post-infection recovery’ for ‘Springsteen concert attendance’ in the text of imagined NJ law, and you’ve got a quote from a law recently passed in Florida.” (07/05/21)
