City Paper is not for tourists
DCist’s Sommer Mathis prudently spanks a haughty attitude among parade ticketholders, as evidenced by this comment from onesuch. This particular individual thought she should be exempt from the requirement to get on the parade route early, before the feds close it down due to overcapacity. Just because you bought a $25 ticket doesn’t mean you’re above the dictates of the Federal Security Apparatus (FSA). Nor does a parade ticket exempt you from any of the bag-size requirements of the parade route.
