How to return those Stevie Wonder tickets

People who wound up tickets to a Stevie Wonder concert Wednesday night that were among the 1,500 intended for D.C. public school teachers can return them by e-mail, a D.C. school official said Wednesday.

Most of the free tickets, which were to go to D.C. teachers who are closing in on the end of the school year, were claimed after the password to access the tickets electronically was circulated on the Web.

One tipster who called the Washington Post Wednesday morning said that she had received an e-mail telling her that free tickets were available to the Stevie Wonder concert - but no information that the tickets were intended for someone else. She signed up for a pair. Once she saw news accounts about the missing tickets, she wanted to return them.

The tipster said that it wasn't easy to figure out what to do. But someone at the D.C. schools told her to fax in a copy of the tickets.

D.C. schools spokeswoman Jennifer Calloway said Wednesday that the best method is actually to e-mail a copy of the electronic tickets to Returned tickets will be redistributed to teachers anxious to get their Stevie Wonder fix.

Tickets, technology, teachers, tipster and now signed, sealed and delivered.

To the previous poster...the determination no doubt will be those who are not IMPACTED literally will get a free-ticket.

Who will get the tickets=Fenty/Rhee supporters who intend to ratify the new teacher contract; short and sweet.
