Friday Fragments with Mark: Insane Ticket Fees, Flakesgiving On Its Way, Flakes Trip Giveaway

We, the concert-ticket-purchasing public, have had it with paying extra fees for tickets. One example: Every ticket to go to Wheel Of Fortune at the Alberta Bair Theatre has a $12 fee on top of what the ticket costs.

She didn't buy tickets because of that.
The Montana Millionaire tickets sold out in record time. I got mine.
Flakesgiving boxes are going to be thirty bucks this year. Assembly day is Friday, November 18. Then we'll hand them out Saturday the 19th at noon.
