We posted last month (here and here) about abuses perpetrated by the concert and sports entertainment industry, which often makes it impossible for consumers to buy tickets at face value. Music-industry celebrities are sometimes part of the problem. The office of New York City councilman Dan Garodnick has followed CL&P's coverage of the issue and alterted me to the councilman's recent op-ed on the topic. Read the op-ed here.
