Heartbreaking Tales from the Great Recession

Presented without comment, from the New York Times:

For decades, parents in the Northeast who sent their children to summer camp faced the same arduous logistics of traveling long distances to remote towns in Maine, New Hampshire and upstate New York to pick up their children or to attend parents’ visiting day.

Now, even as the economy limps along, more of the nation’s wealthier families are cutting out the car ride and chartering planes to fly to summer camps. One private jet broker, Todd Rome of Blue Star Jets, said his summer-camp business had jumped 30 percent over the last year.

This weekend, a popular choice for visiting day at camps, private planes jammed the runways at small rural airports.

John Edwards’s “Two Americas” rhetoric would’ve resonated nicely for 2012.  Too bad he turned out to have been a Chucky doll-esque sociopath.
