Overwrought NPR blog post (Linda Holmes)

Useful and informative MetaFilter thread

And, of course, our posts (by me):

More on Martin and Solomon and 92Y (this is the long, "comprehensive" one)


A Gift Certificate is not a Refund. Of all the publications above only the Hollywood Reporter made this distinction. The 92Y is not returning $50 to everyone who bought a ticket for the Martin interview. It is giving them a gift certificate that they can use to attend a future 92Y event that has not sold out. This will cost the 92Y a total of $0.
