National Mall

The Mall is public.  The events that occur on the Mall are public.  Congress, through the Park Service, is now trying to create a new way to fund the Mall, via private music events.  This is wrong.
Write your Congressman.

One concert today and tomorrow, well, how much would you pay for a ticket to an inauguration at the Capitol or go to a national museum?  The rich have own and operate Congress and the White House.  Now our obsequious incumbents starting to sell off the Mall to their fiscal masters.  Do you want the Mall to become one more playground for the rich?

A music festival holds part of the Mall for big-dollar attendees. Is that okay?
