NRA, Anheuser-Bush end park deal

Sunday, July 15, 2007

LANGHORNE, Pa. -- The country's largest gun lobby is no longer offering free tickets to get to Sesame Street.

The National Rifle Association had been giving away free tickets to Sesame Place, an amusement park that caters to children in return for online donations to its political arm.

Parent company Anheuser-Busch Cos. said Sesame Place should not have been included in the promotion.

"This was an inadvertent error by Busch Entertainment Corp. and we apologize for any confusion," the St. Louis-based company said in a statement Friday.

How silly. There should nothing to apologize for. It's a pass to an event! Who really cares where it comes from? Get a life.
