Because the weather is challenging, the The Dallas Festival of Ideas organizers have just dropped all fees associated with today’s programming. It’s not because they’re rolling in dough. It’s because of “the generosity of our supporters.”
They go on to report, “To join us for Beer and BBQ, it is $20 unless you are already a ticket holder. Starting Tuesday, we will be handling refunds.”
Ah, come on. Refunds? Really? The show is still going on and the organizers are doing all they can to provide the program without endangering the safety of others. Still the costs of flying experts in and facility rentals have to be paid. So, if you want to feel like a “generous supporter,” don’t bother asking for a refund.
