  1. White House Chaos

    And Melania Trump is the honorary chairwoman of the President's Arts Council. Maybe she quit too.

    I realize the nature of this discussion makes people very emotional, but please, everyone, stop the personal insults (posts have been deleted). Respect and restraint are what is required. Thank you.

    And while we are playing, the President can be removed (he has the right to challenge the removal). Section 4. Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.

    25th Amendment. Selected by the President, confirmed by a majority of the House and Senate.

    There hasn't been a true WH press briefing since August 2.
  6. Dumb phones can receive and send texts (speaking for the US only, and we have had some US members without smart phones inquire).
  7. I asked Ticketmaster if tickets needed to be purchased via the link in the text message; the answer is no. From Ticketmaster: "once you receive the presale code via text message, you can go ahead and go to Ticketmaster.com, search for the event, and purchase on August 30 at 10:00am ET. You will be able to use your code anywhere online." This should help everyone with poor cell phone reception, fast computers and those without smartphones.
  8. Silence in the face of Nazism is Appeasment.

    Clean it up or we will lock this one also.
  9. Just BRUCE!

    There's a good closeup of Patti's ring on Instagram. In the US we would call it an engagement ring, but my bet is it's a more recent purchase. She seems to be wearing it in the photo above.
  10. There are no exceptions to the ban on non-transferrable tickets, but you are correct, the venue can establish hoops you have to go through. People from outside of NY should start peppering Ticketmaster with these questions - what are the ticket delivery methods.
  11. I drive in NYC, and last I checked I am not crazy. Take Amtrak to NYC/Penn Station and walk to the theater from there - no driving, no parking, no subway, no taxis. It is an easy 20 minute walk. It is a 2 hour show, take the 11 pm train home, sleep in your own bed - or in one of the many hotels near the theater. The fall in NYC is the best! Oh wait - Point two! Can't help you there.

    Nils should have put some context around it. As horrible as that photo is in 1992 and today, it should have been put in its place and not casually tossed around.
  13. Under NY State law, a ticket purchaser has the legal right to transfer his/her tickets to an event in NYS. I don't know what hoops the box office or Ticketmaster will make you go through to do this, but I expect none - if there were, they would have been announced already. They are doing the verified fan to combat bots.

    Photo is from 1992. https://cdn.relaymedia.com/amp/www.poynter.org/2013/how-kkk-rally-image-found-new-life-20-years-after-it-was-published/199985/
