thought of this on the way to l.a. yesterday: last summer was waiting to get on a 747 at heathrow and a pushy person cut in front of me in line; I looked to see who had the nerve, and saw this on the ticket in her hand: Seat 1K; name: Jagger/Bianca. (Though it was actually her handler, escorting her tender and well-appointed charge.) And I was wondering, yesterday, are the rich gullible enough to believe that *everyone* can be in Row One, even though "1K" is essentially an impossible seat?
Or is that in fact the promise of the lottery of capitalist culture? Row One, for everyone. Now matter how big Row One has to be.
Today I drove around Torrance in a $60,000 car. It's got good pick-up, and tells you when you're close to other objects.Posted by dbrown at April 29, 2003 01:14 AM
