Obama, travel and a joke

 Permanent link

President Obama on travel and transportation in his State of the Union address last night:

"Within 25 years, our goal is to give 80% of Americans access to high-speed rail (applause).

"This could allow you to go places in half the time it takes to travel by car. For some trips, it will be faster than flying." Pause. "Without the pat-down." (Laughter and applause.)

The dirtiest hotels

We can probably just let this speak for itself.

TripAdvisor's 2011 Dirtiest Hotels, as reported by TripAdvisor users.

According to this page, though, 3,000 Facebook users "like" the list of the dirty U.S. hotels (as of 10:03 a.m.). I think it's time for us to re-examine the use of the Like button.
