Saudi Prince Reserves 66 Limos

Posted on March 27, 2009 by LCT Magazine

BUT NOT HERE: Some big-time Saudi prince with a name as long as a stretch limo has reserved 66 of them for 90 days at Lake Geneva, Switzerland.  .  . .

Apparently, he will be getting "treament" at a Swiss health resort. As part of his treatment regimen, may we suggest an extended reinvigoration and recovery tour to all major American cities. Recession-plagued operators -- from Boston to L.A. -- would be thrilled to provide 66 stretch limousines in each major city for extended stays. Now that would be some divine stimulus. And it's the least the Prince could do for the industry and for America. After all, many of our hard-earned consumer dollars are spent on fuel and petroleum products that maintain the House of Saud lifestyle largesse. And our confiscated tax dollars pay for the American military installations that preserve the Islamically repressive Saudi kingdom. So, Dear Prince, please give us some of your quality limo time. The fuel surcharges are on us. -- M.R.
