Dear Professor Kaufman,
Some say $40 oil ahead. Get ready to travel. It is disgusting that so many student loans go for study abroad and the attended burning of fossil fuels leading to global warming. What is wrong with Obama? Why doesn’t Obama fight global warming by stop funding the ridiculous education-industrial complex? And bring the troops home. And don’t fund professor travel. And make federal employees use trains and buses. And seal the Mexican borders. Too many illegals burning too much fossil fuels in the USA. Too much oil is used for all sorts of government liberal spending schemes.
I constantly get travel advertisements from college alumni associations. If more alumni were working instead of retiring and traveling then USA would import fewer illegals and burn less fossil fuels.
As I expected I got an offer to buy miles for my frequent flier program. They want you to fly while their costs are at the lowest (much of the cost is fuel) that nicely coincides with the winter off-season when not so many fliers are flying.
