Canadian Stimulus Money At Work

This is pretty amusing.
After two weeks of sluggish ticket sales to hear Bill Clinton speak, the Canadian National Exhibition has slashed prices from $20 to five dollars plus admission... Organizers were hoping to fill the 25,000-seat BMO Field, but to-date have only sold 7,000... to the marquee event, paid for in part by federal stimulus dollars.
All I could think about was the catch line from the movie The Running Man - I'd buy that for a dollar! (But not for $5 I guess.)
