After it was painted pink, the Archdiocese of New Orleans created new rules just for St. Louis Cemetery #1  (including requiring visitors to be accompanied by a licensed tour guide at $20 a person, posting security to enforce the same at the gate, and prohibiting those touring from wandering on their own. Never mind tour guide licenses cost upwards of a thousand plus per year).

As a result, only a certain clientele is visiting her at any given moment and only a certain kind of tour guide is hosting her guests.
