Yesterday, Puerto Rican Korean War veterans bypassed shutdown-imposed barricades to gain access to the Korean War memorial on the National Mall. It appears the National Park Service put those barricades back up — mustn’t let veterans visit memorials during a government shutdown! This afternoon, one determined veteran is refusing to take “no” for an answer. Good for him.
A lot of energy is being expended to keep putting those barricades up. What exactly is the point again?
It actually takes more work to close the WWII memorial than it does to keep it open like it usually is. That's government logic.
