This just in

This caught my eye this morning while ingesting the first dose of caffeine for the day.

“Vacations are a nonnegotiable part of contemporary life, even in challenging economic times,” said travel industry spokesman Peter Yesawich.

In a similar vein, a spokesman for the Association of US Mortgage Lenders stated that massive mortgages and cyclical refinancing are a nonnegotiable part of contemporary life, and when economic times get tough, subprime mortgages and negative-amortization ARM’s are there to help.

Yet another indication of how invested our society is in the easy motoring culture we have built for ourselves.  The interesting part is that a lot of people will agree with the statement made by the travel industry shill and will indeed continue to go on vacations even while the bills start racking up.

    The industry spokesman has his head up his nether regions.

    He reminds me of “Baghdad Bob” from the Iraq War. He’s spewing fabricated tripe put in his mouth by others, and I’m guessing even he doesn’t believe it.
