Lots and lots of corporate and other reserved, really, really expensive empty seats at the Olympics (TNT, 7-31)? Tut! Tut! They could easily be filled with the rabble – so known in earlier English literature, but now known as the 99 percent!

Hand out free tickets until every seat is filled. Then, that Mitt Romney might repent of his gaffes regarding London’s failure to do as well as he in carrying out Olympic events, reserve a prominent (for photo-ops) seat for him so that he can demonstrate how much he really understands and likes people like me.
