Yikes - Homecoming parade fees

Council members get tanked, Wal-Mart donates nearly $3,000 for homecoming parade fees

Yikes, I have read this several times now and I'm really not sure I like this at all.  Government makes school pay homecoming parade permit fee, Government and school tries for 2 days to raise fee, Walmart pays fee.

 Checkout the article - complete with videos - here.

This is pretty sad and I can't really put my finger on it. I'm not disappointed with Wal-mart, in fact I think they did a great thing.  I think that the fact that goverment wouldn't wave this fee is sad.  Am I wrong?

What are your thoughts?
