Harvard students scalping tickets

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- Some of the hottest tickets in town are to Harvard commencement events featuring two famous Bills: Clinton and Gates.

Dozens of Harvard University students sold free tickets to events for as much as $100 a piece, much to the chagrin of university officials.

'We obviously frown upon it and do what we can,' university spokesman Joe Wrinn said.

The tickets, listed for sale on, were to Wednesday's Class Day talk by former President Bill Clinton and Thursday's commencement address by Microsoft Corp. founder Bill Gates.

I was scheduled to be there for my "second" 35th reunion. Events intervened. Oh well.
