Two days after the uproar in Congress over the auto executives’ flights, Ford said it was considering selling its five jets, three of which are used for executive travel. GM is selling two of its seven planes, listing two for sale and asked aviation regulators to block the public’s ability to track a leased jet it uses, without saying why.So, OK: they’re going to sell the jets. But here’s the reality: let’s remember why they’re going to Congress and why they want to sell the jets. Is anyone really in the market for a used jet right now? I’m thinking maybe not. (If nothing else, they burn a whole lotta gas!)
Closer to home for me, I seem to have woken up in a third world country with news agencies tossing around words like “coup” and “coalition.”
To hell in a handbasket, baby. I think I’ll go read a book.
