"Finally! Now people working in high paying jobs can score these tickets!"

What a friend (in a high paying job) said upon seeing this story on the death of the rush ticket line. (Replacement: more lotteries.)

There has, in fact, been an issue over the last few years with some professional line-sitters abusing the system for profit. But this seems rather ill-judged even if it does kill that business.

  1. good idea. at least some of the cheap (formerly expensive) tickets will get to the people who could easily afford to buy for full price. instead of doing something with people who abuse the system.
    why should poor people go to opera ? :(((( let them sit and watch some tv.


Absolutely no axe-grinding, please.
