It’s been a rough day. A rough week, and it’s only halfway over. (And while I may whine and moan, if you’ve had the misfortune of trying to have Europe on your itinerary, it’s been even rougher.)

So here, cheer up. Have a clip of Stephen Colbert, on the subject of airline fees.

    Colbert is exactly on point. It is unfortunate that the airline industry has come to this point. More and more people are looking into private air travel over first-class travel on a commercial plane.

    Airline managers aren’t happy until passengers aren’t happy.

    The beatings will stop when morale improves.

    This is further reason why I love Colbert! It really is a tragedy when Congress is having to get involved with airline fees. It was a tragedy when they got involved in baseball and a tragedy with this. Yes, airlines did lower prices during the economy bust, but they tried to offset it with fees, and it’s failed miserably.

    Funny but sadly true

    “Gaugosphere” – Always good for a smile! As far as paying to use the bathroom, that’s how a lot of Europeans do public bathrooms, so that’s sort of a natural extension of how they do it already.
