A Marie Antoinette Moment

The economy is in a tailspin, unemployment is skyrocketing, and homes are in foreclosure.

How appropriate for an appeal to be made at the recent USC-Oregon football game at the LA Colosseum for folks to contribute further to the 2 million dollar endowment for Traveler, the white horse that is the mascot for the USC Trojans.  Let’s insure, the announcer said, that Traveler can get to all the games and do so in style.

Hey, nothing but the best for that horse!   Such a “let them eat cake” comment would have made Marie Antoinette smile.

    Yeah…I was sitting in Hardees this morning while my car was being worked on and watched about 40 high school students drive in with their nice cars to eat breakfast…really sensing the hurting out there on the street…guess they had empty refrigerators at home…

    Pretty crazy the society we live in. I wonder why no politician will stand up and say, “We’re all CONSUMERS! We are reaping what we have sown!” Duhhhhh…..
