Is taking advantage of such offers entirely honest?

Hmmm. I don't know. I figure on the one hand, they've probably figured in the "cost" of x number of people not contributing anything.

On the other hand, I look at it if people don't contribute at least something, then opportunities for these cheap forms of entertainment will disappear.

Last night, for example, I went to a "free" concert of Celtic music. But when they passed the hat, I put in $10. I figure, for $10, I can't go to a concert, or buy a CD, so it's still a bargain. (They money goes to fund the endowment that keeps these free concerts going).
