The Private Jets and the Detroit CEOs
Argument A: Are those guys crazy? Do they know how that appears? They're asking for a bail-out and they fly in on corporate jets! What's wrong with flying coach or even first class? Where are their PR advisors?
Argument B: Are the critics crazy? Wouldn't they have been the first to blast these execs for their condescension and hypocrisy if, for the first time in years, they suddenly flew commercial? When an organization is in trouble, does it make sense for the execs to squander time at the airport? Why not focus on what's truly important?
