Archaeologist daughter has a rapier wit and sense of humor – remember, she came up with Tiger Wood’s new slogan to pitch to the lumber industry as potential spokesperson: “Got Wood?”.

She called  a couple nights ago to commiserate with me about being sick while on vacation. “Yup” she said, “Flying Economy is a First Class way to get sick”, referring to the staggering crowding that Economy passengers go through in the pursuit of cheap fares. Funny enough, I had just finished watching a documentary on the rampant use of antibiotics in cattle, necessitated primarily because of the shoulder-to-shoulder crowding required to produce cheap meat.

Cheap meat? Cheap fares? Hmmmmm. As my business partner Mr. Angelo says: “It’s all about greed”.
