Spotted at a SuperAmerica store in Woodbury Sunday night:
Oh dear. It’s even worse than we imagined. Just when we were beginning to comprehend the tragedy of the cost of fueling up a boat on Lake Minnetonka, comes word that air will now cost us.
If only we’d been smart enough to open up the national parks to drill for more air. Is it going up because of the falling dollar, or is this the work of speculators in the air market?
Perhaps if we all just slow our respiration down to 55 breaths per minute, we can get by. But a lot more people are going to be breathing close to home this summer.
