"Of course, the problem lies in the fact that the local officials are spending OPM (other people’s money)." And getting some for themselves through season ticket gifts, etc. The etc. also includes outright bribes.

Top local gov't officials make sure they get a block of tickets for every event,for their own use,to give to others,or to sell and keep the money for themselves. It''s guaranteed.

I suspect they even get their own free skybox or suite in addition to the free tickets.

Five years ago while driving my son Sam to The University of Kansas, we stopped to get gas off the I-70 in the western part of the state. There was a rather large market adjacent to the gas pumps which we entered to buy some drinks. There was a massive display of Hostess products. The entire family of delicious treats was on there – Twinkies, Cupcakes, Ding-Dongs, Fruits Pies and Snowballs. I knew I was no longer in California as I never see them in health-obsessed Los Angeles.

Now they will all be gone unless someone buys them out...
