This world has gone mad

There’s the economy, financial crisis and human rights issues…death penalty, abortion, gay rights and there are the numerous conflicts~Ukraine, Middle East, Korea.

but then there’s the really important stuff

like the cost of a plane ticket

putting aside the torture of air travel these days, the queues for security and complete surrender of all dignity…

I was just checking airfare from Chicago (ORD) to London (LHR)

nearly fell off my chair

nothing in September, October or November for less than $1000, One Thousand US Dollars!!!

Ahhh, just found something on British Airways (my personal favorite) for $749

For reference, ten years ago I used to travel this exact route for under $400.

Madness…
