PRICELESS (OR WHAT RECESSION?)

$190 for tickets to U2 360 Tour at Busch Stadium on a beautiful sunny day on Sunday, July 17, 2011.

$25 for a program to be framed with the tickets. $30 for a hat (for my husband) with U2 360 embroided on the front.

$10 for the poster (since we could not take a good photo of the band performing with our cheesy camera).

$20 for parking in a garage. $2 for a bottle of cold water from a street vendor outside the stadium.

Inside the stadium - $6.75 for a cheeseburger, $4.50 for a hotdog, $5.50 for a large fries, $5.00 for a bottle of cold water and $7.50 for a cold beer.

If only we could be ONE and there is real PEACE ON EARTH - PRICELESS.


P.S. - If you looked at the lines of people waiting to purchase t-shirts ($40), hats ($30), programs ($25), etc., you would not believe that there is high unemployment in America.

If you saw the long lines at the concession stands, especially at the beer counters, and the packed stadium of 53,000 people, you would ask "What recession?"


I wonder if the current debate about the debt ceiling or U.S. national deficits was real or just another political game Washington is playing. What do you think?

The debt ceiling is real but overblown by the media. Politics is driving everything we see since next year is a Presidential election year and everyone is making their stand...the losers are US because they will continue to spend to stay in office and get reelected.

During the Great Depression, people went to the movies and live shows in droves to escape reality so going to a U2 concert is not off the mark at all ( just costs more nowadays )...enjoyment and escape...wish I was there...they are a great band !
