Will those governing Mackinac Island choose greed over fairness and tradition? Will $2 less per ticket really make a difference? Would it really be the deciding factor for someone to take their family to M.I.? Would thousands more flock to the island because a ticket is $2 less? Ridiculous! How long would that reduction last? What a sorry joke.
I'll be going to the island on the 21st. I won't worry about the 4 dollars total. I will take Sheplers's because of this.
