ID to swim, not vote?

ID to swim, not vote?

I just got my morning paper and inside was the Fredericksburg Parks and Recreation summer catalog.

As I was looking it over, I noticed that if I want to use the Dixon Pool, I would need a photo ID.

How odd that there are those in this country who are crying foul if ID is required before someone can vote.

Let me think--to swim in a concrete hole filled with water, I need an ID. But to ask for an ID before a person votes is unthinkable. What the heck?
