Here is the original version:
TICKET touts were charging up to £120 for the chance to see the Dalai Lama give his only public talk in Edinburgh yesterday.

Eager to cash in on the last day of a six-day Scottish visit by the 1989 Nobel Peace Prize winner, ticket prices, originally £15, soared as crowds turned up outside the Usher Hall for the world peace flag ceremony and concert.

Corrected version:
Heroic entrepreneurs enable keen Buddhists to see their leader despite market misjudgement by managers of government-owned concert hall

Hardly "heroic" - "clever", "wise", "smarter than the average bureaucrat", "risk taking" certainly.
