Luckie has been underfoot ever since I got back yesterday. She won't stop following me / running ahead of me wherever I go! I get the feeling she's attention starved... don't know WHERE that feeling come from, LOL. She's here right now glaring at me: "Look at me! Hey! Look! Play!" She'll be in my lap any second now...
Edit: Yup, she jumped straight from the floor to my laptop, then my shoulder, the desk, the bookcase, back to me. Now she's attacking some mailing envelopes for no apparent reason. She's a bit hyper at the moment.
From the Huffington Post:
Air Force One Costs Taxpayers More Than $60K An Hour...
Posted on May 30, 2006 at 11:51 AM.
In 2004, before fuel prices skyrocketed, the Air Force estimated that it cost $56,800 per hour to operate Air Force One. Which means that President Bush's quick 22-minute flight from Philadelphia back home to Washington last week probably cost taxpayers about $30,000, give or take a thousand.
That's... a lot. They should invest in inventing a ST transporter for him and just beam him. It'd be cheaper. Shit, that one flight (let alone an hour or several) is more than many Americans make a year.
I'm not even going to think about the decifit right now.
