Glitch Botches Inauguration Tix Sale

Usually people get screwed trying to buy tickets online. This is sort of the same thing. Those who thought they were getting exclusive tickets to one of the president’s two inaugural balls were foiled Sunday when a Ticketmaster glitch sent out an early email telling people to buy now. The unsuspecting Obama fans were told that a certain number of tickets were being offered to them on Monday for $60 a pop. While Ticketmaster apologized for the mishap, many of the tickets were already sold. Hundreds vented on the Inaugural Committee’s Facebook page.
