Spirit Airlines Believes in Offshore Drilling And Lets Us Know It

Well you gotta give Spirit Airlines points for chutzpah, although we would love to know where in Florida one can go snorkelling with an oil derrick (their legs and structure attract fish, you know) between you and the beach.

They say "We believe in offshore drilling and other plans that will help keep fares low for you." -the link goes to good buddy T. Boone Pickens, who says "this is one emergency we can't drill our way out of" but whatever. Of course if you are selling your tickets for nine bucks you do probably have a problem these days. ::Spiritair thanks, tipster allison!
