Even my sister is still convinced that the reason we've gotten tickets in the past is that my husband teaches at BYU. Really? Like they have time to sort all those applications to figure out who works for the church? Sometimes we've gotten them and sometimes not-- like this year :(

Why do people have to behave this way? Do the masses think that the process of handing out tickets is rigged? It's a lottery plain and simple.

Even if the tickets were sold there would be scalpers and whiners acting this way.

I think its more the criminal types (scalpers) making all the noise. Anyone acting this way or faking tickets should be black listed to never get any tickets. There should be some way to mark the tickets to match the intended recipients and transferable with church permission only. Mark them not for sale and a punishable crime if sold.

"...drew a record 1,515,963 ticket requests."

Maybe the Church could consider requiring a one dollar fee for applying for a ticket and then putting it in the Humanitarian Aid fund.

It might cut back on requests but would pump a lot of money to where it would do some great good.

OR
David and the Choir could (in addition to their regularly scheduled concerts) do a few extra ones, charging a reasonable price and it could all go to Humanitarian Aid.

Either way, more good would result than just people hearing good music.

Mayfair, That is a great idea!

They could still build goodwill and benefit the less fortunate at the same time.

I hope they're listening.

I'd rather spend time with my family and then next year we could watch this years concert on DVD...makes sense to me!
