A ticket to see history is turning into a very hot ticket, especially for North Carolinians.
The News and Observer says thousands in our state have requested tickets to Barack Obama's Presidential Inauguration. People can ask their Congressman or U-S Senator for tickets.
The tickets are free, but ticket brokers are selling them for thousands of dollars. Reportedly, a pair of tickets have sold already for more than ten thousand dollars.
The Senate Committee overseeing the Inauguration says ticket brokers don't actually have the tickets they're selling--tickets do not get distributed until the week before the Inauguration. The details about attending the inauguration are online at inaugural.senate.gov.
