SCALPERS TAKE ADVANTAGE OF JIMMY BUFFETT CHARITY GULF CONCERT - Broadway To Vegas column - June 27, 2010

http://www.broadwaytovegas.com/June27,2010.html

The people who bought tickets are as bad as the scalpers. Instead of spending money on tickets they should have donated the money to help the people and those poor oil covered animals. Give the money where it would do some good, then stay home and watch the concert on TV or take your chances at getting a free ticket the honest way.

Why does every award show come from Las Vegas? The country awards should be from Nashville. The Emmy Awards should be from Hollywood or New York. Next thing you know, they'll move the Oscar telecast to Las Vegas.

The things most people own are thrown away or sold at garage sales The only time the stuff gets a second nod is if it's worth money. in MJ's case,

TAKES TALENT TO BE A BURLESQUE DANCER - Broadway To Vegas column - May 30, 2010

http://www.broadwaytovegas.com/May30,2010.html

Just because you had a class in modern dance doesn't mean you have what it takes to be a burlesque dancer. Not even a drunk will tip a bad dancer so they get weeded out. The good ones have style. Don't knock it if you haven't tried it.
