'The Ethicist:' Ticket Re-Sales

NPR's Howard Berkes and New York Times Magazine ethicist Randy Cohen discuss the dilemma of William Gooch of South Holland, Illinois. He got lucky enough to win a lottery to purchase hard-to-get baseball tickets. He wonders whether it's right to sell a ticket to his friend for more than face value.
