A fuss over charging vets for Veterans Day festivities

There's a dustup after the Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum (that's where the aircraft carrier Yorktown is for all of you unfamiliar folks) decided to charge full $15 admission to veterans during their Veterans Day program.

A silly thing to do for sure, and their media and public relations manager pretty much agreed that it was.

Go read all about it at The Post and Courier.

There's certainly reason for outrage over this, but I also sympathize with the folks running the museum: Ship upkeep isn't cheap and our low-tax state doesn't have much money to give to support it.
