Grateful Dead Tickets $100

Well, since in Dallas, Red Jumpsuit apparatus tickets are only $20something, and Grateful Dead is less popular, at least among people who listen to music on a regular basic and aren't old, I'd think this move makes no sense.

But it does, if you think about it. These guys are no longer popular. You could call it a farewell tour, and if diehard fans will plunk down $100 a ticket to see their heroes before they hit the retirement home, then so be it.

Supply and demand, in basic terms, like the Burger King commercial. Sure, you leave out all the rest of the economic details, but point is, if people will pay for them, let them. It's all about the cash.

Now don't get me started on the evil record companies. That's a whole 'nother story.
