My nephew is celebrating today as he managed to win Live 8 tickets for the concert next month in London's Hyde Park. He's hoping to take his younger brother with him, providing he can wangle the day off from his Saturday job! I hope they have a great time - there's some fantastic artists playing. I feel saddened though that some people are trying to cash in on the FREE tickets they've received by selling them for a fortune on Ebay. Fine if they're going to donate the money to charity, but I doubt whether the charities will receive a penny. In my mind its just a selfish, greedy thing to do.

I'm sure he'll have a blast. I'd love to go to the one here in Philly but I have crowd issues. It's hard enough to move in the city for the few weeks surrounding the 4th of July, so this is going to be even more difficult. Plus at some point that weekend there's also an Elton John concert down there -- part of the 4th of July festivities. I love my music, but I'm going nowhere near Center City for about a month!

I'm sorry to hear about the scalping. Doesn't surprise me, but it's sad.
