Simmer down, populists. Those prices we listed yesterday for "sponsorships" at the Mike Beebe inaugural ball were just for "sponsorships." Your name will be up in lights. Or at least in a program. But you may attend without being a sponsor.
Biscuit cookers and others may also attend the ball for $100 a head (cheaper than the Huckabee inaugural in 2002, but his included dinner.) There also will be a party the night before the inauguration, with tickets for a bargain $25, Beebe spokesman Zac Wright said. Tickets will be mailed in mid-December.
