Conspicuous consumption

In a place where getting fuel is nearly impossible, this was the display the residents of Ramallah witnessed not too long ago.

Think about it. A line of detailed SUVs and vans in a place where most people can't get home heating oil. Not only are those the gas-guzzlingest vehicles you can possibly put on the road but they had to be flown in a fleet of fuel-hungry airplanes to get there.


George's excellent adventure.

I do like the antennae on the first vehicle in the picture though.
