Tannenbaum feeling the pinch

A reader has informed me, via a comment to my review of Greensboro’s wonderful Tannenbaum Historic Park, that this facility is now open on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays only.  I headed over to the park’s website, and unfortunately it’s true.

It confirms what I’ve known by experience for several years now.  If you work for a historic site or museum that’s part of a government entity or university, get ready for trouble when it’s time for budget cuts.  That series of concentric circles on your chest, my friend, is what we call a target—and bureaucrats everywhere are polishing their rifles.
