Gettysburg's new Vistior's Center - superfluous?

Tim Reese weighs in on the Gettysburg Visitor's Center thread at Usenet:
We're not talking about a new VC strictly within agency requirements, are we. Rather it's a matter of prostituting a government-run site for profit via commercial partnership, this done under the aegis of public shortfall offset by private economic involvement with open-ended entanglements.
Bullseye. And as to purpose:
For years the battlefield struggled to rise above the town carnival. Now it eagerly matches it.
Good stuff intermingled with cries of anger from fans of the forthcoming Center.
