Coach class OK


Prince William was spotted on an airplane, sitting in coach class, on his way back to England from Tennessee. The Queen says all royalty pay their own airfare — probably the reason he was sitting in coach.

Our politicians are not royalty, but many act like they expect the government to provide them a free ride with many perks. Maybe it would be a good idea to use the British royalty as a model for our politicians. It might bring them back to earth at the working class level.

Do you think such a legislative bill would get through Congress and be supported by the president?
