A Sense of Entitlement, Anyone?

It isn’t bad enough that the ticket brokers go ahead and take the best concert tickets, leaving it so that even if you are “first” to get tickets, the best are already gone.

No, the Orange County Fair directors have to step in and take their unfair share as well.

The LA Times reported that Fair directors get up to twenty-six premimum orchestra tickets apiece. That compares to the four they get in LA county, and those are in the bleacher sections. And the biggest winner? Deborah Carona, wife of our esteemed former Sheriff, with 1,100 tickets over the past two years.

And this is when in three of the past five years, the concert series has lost money. Gee, I wonder why.

State regulators are urging the directors to change the policy, but the President of the board states, “It isn’t an easy thing to work out.”

Oh, how so?

Stop giving yourself so many freebies.

Sounds pretty easy to me.

    What the hell can she possibly do with 1100 tix??

    This crap pisses me off because you KNOW most of those tickets just get wasted.

    Those must be the one’s she auctions off at big money banquets, or the such. And like daveshare said, most of those probably get wasted.

    I am not sure which is a bigger thief though, ticket brokers or Ticket Master.
