I just cannot credit the ineptitude of the people charged with running the London Olympics. This was the morning that people who had obtained tickets that they didn't want (probably half the nation) were informed that they could return them for resale.
At the same time buyers were lining up to buy the returned tickets. One would have thought that the technology would be in place to deal with this gigantic swap but...the system broke down and couldn't handle the demand. You couldn't make it up!
