This is what's called "progress."
..."By transitioning to credit cards only, we can provide a better and safer customer service experience for our fans, and improve the speed of service, reducing wait times," officials with Summerfest parent company Milwaukee World Festival Inc. said in a statement Tuesday. "Options to convert cash to a card will be provided on-site for no charge."...
What gibberish. "Better and safer" ........compared to WHAT?
It's amusing to hear 'officials' yap about 'safer', ignoring the little matter of credit-card/debit-card security which--on a public Wi-Fi network--will be zero.
So if you intend to go Brave New World Festival, take the "option to convert" window.
And if you're a minority, behold the White Privilege at Summerfest!
