Kickass leases a jet

Kickass, the doorstop dog, reports that the keeper was puzzled over the appearance of advertising for leasing a jet aircraft—starting at only $147,275 for 24 hours,  when it showed up on his computer screen as he was shopping for wine-tasting opportunities and cheap food.

On the heels of the Super Bowl  extravaganza with tickets at $6000 each and a beer costing $17, the keeper did not think he needed yet one more reminder that he is definitely not in that “one percent” where the concern over big pharm, for example, is the price of company stock and not the cost of life-sustaining medicine.

The hourly rate for jet rental was listed at $5,891, prompting the keeper to calculate the cost of flying the 20 miles or so over to Lodi to see Susie the duck, which sounds like something a rich person might do, but would leave the keeper out on the street pushing a grocery cart loaded with plastic bags full of rags as he sings, “I’m  a man of means by no means, king of the road.”
