A ticket to Utopia

Sir Thomas More titled his 16th-century book Utopia, a coinage meaning "nowhere." And as Andrew Sargus Klein discovered, a ticket to Obama's inauguration was kind of like that:
I was one of thousands of people who did not make it in to the Inauguration despite the fact that we were holding tickets -- well-made, embossed, beautiful tickets, complete with a little map on the back telling us where to go (in theory).
Heh. I could have told you where to go, Andrew. But I think Obama will get us there soon enough.

Meanwhile, Mariah Carey's complaining that her VIP seat wasn't VIP enough. Well, when every narcissistic celebrity on the planet wants a ticket, what's a diva to do?
