Spotted: VIP Red Badge of Courage

A young intern, dressed in a t-shirt and khaki shorts, was proudly displaying his red badge at the Memorial Day Concert in front of the Capitol. At one point, he walked up to the rope that separated the VIP section from the public section and insisted that they let him through, using his badge asproof that he had been invited to sit up there.

Dear Intern: as far as everyone else in this world is concerned, your badge means nothing. And, outside of office hours, it really does mean nothing.
