    “When are you going to stop watching American Idol”

    see: Decimus Junius Juvenalis.
    quoting NN website: “In Juvenal’s time (55-127 A.D.), the Roman Republic was but a distant memory as the power of the emperors grew stronger and stronger. The once proud Senate that had witnessed the splendid orations of Cato and Cicero—dominated and weakened year after year by the succession of dictators—atrophied into a figurehead of an institution. However, Juvenal felt that the populace took the duties of citizenship far more seriously during the days of the Republic than in the virtual dictatorships of the Caesars.”

    He lamented that “the people that once bestowed commands, consulships, legions, and all else, now meddle no more and longs eagerly for just two things — bread and circuses.
    — endquote.

    Since USA is struck by endless fastfood, and realitity TV shows, it would be logical to conclude that USA 2011 is same as 55AD Rome. The Emperor of USA would however not be a single wellknown person, rather a group of influential people, carefully avoiding to become known to the masses by means of newspapers or other media. In circle explaining the abundance of reality shows offered in media. On can only wonder who would be the Juvenal in modern age ?

    Security crew and the airplane pilots puts a 10 million USD pricetag for their 40 hours workweek. The problem is not extraorbitant luxury at the destination, but the invoicing of basic services. ** Which reminds me of the big hospital and major healtcare insurance company symbiosis. A two day $6000 facilities usage is invoiced at 38k, a sevenfold cost claim. And non-payment allows for nice tax writeoff for hospital. ** a prudent president could pay for the jetfuel from own pocket, as incentive to pick a destination closer to the mainland, and flying choosing smaller private jet :-)
