VIPs of the world unite

For some reason, the Mountain View City Council's defense of the free VIP tickets members get to Shoreline Amphitheatre looks even sillier when someone else tries to make the exact same argument.

In this case, it's Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, who accepted free ringside boxing seats from the Nevada Athletic Commission at the same time the agency was lobbying him against federal regulation of Nevada's second-dirtiest industry.

As a sidenote, I might as well take this opportunity to point out that Council member Mike Kasperzak was spotted "seeing how the parking [was] handled" at the Jimmy Buffett concert on April 25, rather than attending that night's city council meeting.

I mean, if you can't point that stuff out on a blog, what's the point of having one?
