“"I've got a list of corporations that have gotten out of their airplanes [because of criticism from politicians]. It is the stupidest thing I've ever seen. When you look at the time and cost savings; it does not make sense not to fly [privately]. You can't let public perception interfere with your business decision to fly. It either is a good business decision or it isn't."”
Oregon’s Oval Office
Ever wonder what it would be like to occupy the Oval Office? Now you can find out–sort of–without even having to campaign. In its new terminal, Rogue Valley International Airport in Medford, Ore., has created a replica of the president’s Oval Office, which it hopes to rent out to generate revenue. The faux chief executive’s office, which seats about 20 people, features a copy of the famous Resolute desk and “windows” that display images of the White House Rose Garden. For a unique board meeting or even a small wedding reception, prospective commanders-in-chief can rent the room for $75 for four hours. A 15-minute photo session costs $25.
