bananas will go back to being something
only the upper classes enjoy. airline travel
is going back to being something only the upper
classes enjoy. the common thread is energy cost.

if the airlines had the guts to price their tickets
to cover the cost of the fuel. there would be less
people traveling by airline. less number of planes
required, less number of pilots, and on and on.

perhaps the sante fe california zephyr will ride
the rails once again. one can dream of the days
gone by.
