Free day in Asheville, North Carolina, so headed over to the Biltmore Estate, George Vanderbilt's monumental exercise in vanity.
Standard admission is $55, which I thought a bit steep. "Youths" got in for half that.
"Welcome to Biltmore, sir, how many?"
"One, please. Can I convince you that I'm a youth?"
"No, sir." Smiles. "Are you military?"
No, ma'am, I'm just old."
"Old will get you $10 off, sir."
