Trial run at free parking was a surprise no one knew

Caesars Entertainment Corp. CEO Mark Frissora did a corporate spin on his flawed test of parking fees (“Caesars: No damage from parking policy,” Friday Review-Journal).

I have not frequented any Strip casino that charges me to park. I only go to The Venetian, which has free parking. I would have gone to the Linq had I known there was no fee, but the only way to discover free parking is to go there. Since there has been a fee in place all along, why would I go there to see if it still exists? I can’t go to all properties to see if they may have lifted their fee.

A better test would be to look at Caesars numbers before and after the fee was instituted, or see if there was an increase in revenue at off Strip properties.

I see a lot of people on both sides with “temper tantrums.” How are we to teach our children if they see adults with angry words and demonstrations in the streets?

Enough already about the rats. Michael Ramirez, in his Aug. 5 political cartoon, used that topic to get in a swipe against Baltimore and the residents of that large and historic city.
