No Derby Pics, Please
It’s odd that just a week after the Boston Police Department asked spectators to send in any photos they had from the timing of the marathon bombing that Churchill Downs, home of next month’s Kentucky Derby, has said no cameras with, “detachable lenses” will be allowed in.
They’ll say it’s a safety issue, I’ll say it’s a financial issue. They don’t want to hire more security to screen people coming in and they probably want to be able to sell more photos to you.
I try so hard not to be cynical, but then I fail … often.
