Here we go again, observing our government changing laws to suit the business owners at the expense of the poor schmucks who are just trying to buy a little entertainment ("City politicians rush to save Ticketmaster's user fees," Feb. 24).
Shame on Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, and shame on the Ravens, the Orioles and all the smaller outfits that support Ticketmaster's stupendous rip-off of the American public. How could they stomp on the very folks who support their businesses?
Personally, I refuse to buy anything through Ticketmaster. In this day and age when everything is automated and fewer humans are needed for transactions such as buying tickets, no one needs to charge 120 percent over the actual ticket cost.
As for Ticketfly's William Payne, don't try to sell me on idea that the reason for such costs is customer convenience. My credit card can do that.
I'm mad as hell and not going to take it anymore. My plan is to notify everyone possible how outrageous and totally unreasonable our politicians and sports franchises are being. How can they allow Ticketmaster to take such advantage of people in our city?
What on earth are these people thinking? Bravo to Andres Bourgeois for at least trying to use the law to stand up for his rights and ours.
