Sunset Tickets

The theory: buying tickets to watch the sun set will make you take time out of your busy day to go see the sunset - and, hopefully, gather with other sunset-ticket-buyers to watch it happen. Somewhere between madness and pure genius. After all, nothing is of value in our society unless it's somehow commodified, as Gus would say . . . .

Who would sell the tickets?

They're being sold through Ticketmaster. I kid you not.

Of course they are. How did I think otherwise...

This is why I love Capitalism! The triumph of small businessmen with great ideas!

Keep in mind that I follow the naked definition of capitalism, not the cronyism of Halliburton and Lockheed Martin, which have little to do with real capitalism.

And it's about as capitalistic as you can get. Anybody can compete in this arena!

Yeah! I'm gonna go sell me sunsets for a living!
