Jill Stewart reports:

More than 1 million people tried to get tickets to Michael Jackson‘s memorial at Staples Center this morning, and the ticket scalpers promptly descended. We feel just terrible that we here at L.A. Weekly managed to grab an extra one just by promptly calling — and not even using our press contacts, while our good friends at Fishbowl LA got the cold shoulder.

What? Calling?! Are you kidding?! AHH!
