“"Many years ago, our company founder, Al Conklin, sold a new twin-engine business aircraft to a very successful entrepreneur. He had established a bit of a rapport with the individual and, after the sale, asked him straight out, 'How can you justify the cost of this airplane?' His reply? 'What is the cost of a divorce?'"–David Wyndham, president, Conklin & de Decker”
Oregon’s Oval Office
Ever wonder what it would be like to occupy the Oval Office? Now you can find out–sort of–without even having to campaign. In its new terminal, Rogue Valley International Airport in Medford, Ore., has created a replica of the president’s Oval Office, which it hopes to rent out to generate revenue. The faux chief executive’s office, which seats about 20 people, features a copy of the famous Resolute desk and “windows” that display images of the White House Rose Garden. For a unique board meeting or even a small wedding reception, prospective commanders-in-chief can rent the room for $75 for four hours. A 15-minute photo session costs $25.
