Arnold Closes CA Businesses To Walk Red Carpet?

by Jamie Court
Arnold's CHP detail has visited businesses up and down the capital's K-Street pedestrian mall and asked them to close down their shops for tonight's "Be Cool" premiere and red carpet walk. Arnold's cops indicated they are restricting access to the mall for tonight's screening. But the Crest Cafe next door is open for business for real people...unless Arnold issues an edict closing down California businesses in order to take a walk down the red carpet without jeers. That's because nurses, teachers, students and firefighters rented the Crest Cafe for a "Be Real" party and will be there to let the Gov know how they feel.

Will the man of the people -- who proclaimed California is open for business -- use his police powers to shut down small businesses so he doesn't face criticism? Be there, be real and find out. C'mon Arnold, if you can't take the heat, get out of the spotlight.
