My Vacation and the Bailout
Dear Senator Kerry, Senator Kennedy, Rep. Olver:
While taking a once-in-a-lifetime whole family vacation (19 of us from around the country!!) to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico over the holidays, I couldn't help but notice the four or five dozen private jets gridlocking both ends of the tarmac at San Jose del Cabo's tiny little airport. It seems that many of the rich and famous chose to vacation in the same region as the Roach family.
Being a family of aviation geeks, my brother and I jotted down a few of the tail numbers from these multi-million dollar jets to see if we could see whom we had been unknowingly rubbing elbows with. One large $45 million Bombardier Global Express
stood out from the rest:
TAIL NUMBER N399GS
C/O CITIGROUP CORPORATE AVIATION
Could you please explain what a jet belonging to a corporation that has received approximately $45 BILLION in taxpayer money over the last 90 days was doing parked on the tarmac of Mexico's trendiest luxury vacation spot on New Year's Day? I am sure there is a completely innocent explanation.
North Adams, MA
