Serves you right for liking Hannah Montana
The Man is sticking it to Hannah Montana fans. Tickets to her concert tour sold out in minutes...only to be resold at exorbitant prices by the evil brokers who originally bought at $63 a pop. Apparently Minneapolis was hit particularly hard - at least, it's mentioned in this article and there was a little blurb about it on the MN news last night. Is this the part where I say that's the free market for you, or does it come later?
Hannah's dad is on board with me: "There is a law of supply and demand, and ... quite frankly, it's beyond our control. We put together a concert tour, and I was really excited about Miley going out and playing for the fans," he said. "That's what her tour is about. It's for the kids and all the families that are watching Hannah Montana." Yeah, I can tell it's all about the kids. That's why you've taken such a laissez-faire attitude while all the kids learn what it's like to get screwed with their pants (skirts?) on.
