When Big Ideas Go Bad . . .

Dave Matthews came to town this weekend and offered to hold a free concert for Barak Obama supporters. He was inspired by the candidate's Big Ideas campaign. The concert was billed as Rocking the Change we can Believe in! There was a line that wound around the entire downtown area that began at the Obama headquarters as people waited patiently for their free tickets to the concert.

Unfortunately, the tickets started showing up for sale on Myspace and Facebook for upwards of $300 a pop. Not quite the kind of change Obama or Dave Matthews had in mind I am thinking.

Oh well, I hope the people who paid big bucks for the tickets, and the people who sold their tickets got what they were after out of the deal.

Politics is so messy.
