Until we can figure out how to slip through wormholes, flying is our best bet. Know what I find most annoying? "Select High-Flyers, Platinum Commodore Club, Masters of the Universe, Tungsten Elite Cadre, and members of the nobility may board at their leisure." Hey, I thought we were supposed to be a classless society. Why don't the tea partiers mobilize their fat asses over this issue instead of braying about Obama's birth certificate? I think the boarding process should be like an Oklahoma Land Rush or festival seating, survival of the fittest, natural selection, etc. Sure, some people will be trampled to death, but that's just culling the herd, improving the gene pool. The joke, of course, is that all the seats suck. The elite will be jammed cheek-by-jowl with the riffraff; captains of industry will have to struggle to open the mylar pack containing two peanuts just like the rest of us benighted souls. And that's my vision of the future. God bless you, and God bless the United States of America.
