The Extravagant Life

Press secretary Tony Snow is joining the ranks of those who are resigning from their White House jobs. Snow has been battling cancer, but according to Fox News, that’s not the reason for his resignation. According to the Fox News article, “Instead, the father of three said he needs to make more than his salary of $168,000. He can earn far more money on the speechmaking circuit.” Um, what???

This is just further proof that people feel they can never have enough money. They acquire more, and they spend more. Apparently, today the American dream means living beyond your means, subsidizing your lifestyle with credit if need be. If Tony Snow wants to make more money elsewhere, that’s fine. Just don’t expect much sympathy from me.
