Where, Exactly, Is That Economic Crisis?


[still another announcement from the university where I minister]

Don’t Miss the First Rock Concert at the BOK!

NKU Students be sure to come to The Bank of Kentucky Center on Monday, February 23 at 6:30pm. The Bank of Kentucky Center will be rockin’ out as Buckcherry, Avenged Sevenfold, Papa Roach, and Saving Abel take the stage for the first rock concert at the new Center. Tickets are only $41.75 and can be purchased at The Bank of Kentucky Center’s Box Office, online at Ticketmaster.com, or by phone at 513.562.4949.

Kent Comments:

Here at our university the president has recently been complaining about needing to make budget cuts.  Kentucky is supposed to be in an economic crisis.  Nationally, we are all on the verge of collapse.  We need bailouts.  We need help.  We are on the fiscal edge.

Well, maybe not.  I have no idea what a ‘Buckcherry’ is, but I do know what economic luxury amounts to, and here we have some.

If there are more than a dozen students at NKU who can afford to pay over $40 to see some stupid rock concert, then we are not hard up at all.  We are just spoiled rich people who want our luxuries, and then complain when someone else doesn’t pay for our necessities.

As long as these kinds of events are being patronized, I have to say, “Stop your whining about the economy.”
