New York's Shot on Ticket Reselling - Town & Village - 2/25/2016

"It seems everyone wants to see "Hamilton" on Broadway.  Unfortunately, for most New Yorkers, last week's televised Grammy Awards performance of the show’s big opening number is the closest they will ever get.

     It’s one of life’s simple yet elusive truths that problems do not get resolved on their own.  In fact, left ignored they tend to fester and grow until they’re considerably more difficult to fix.  Acknowledging this reality and learning how to apply concrete action to avoid it is widely recognized as a sign of personal maturity.  The same reasoning can also be applied to government and today’s column addresses just such a crossroads for New York State.
