Xcel added $1.1M of their $5.7M cost of the aircraft to their recent request for a rate increase. Xcel says the expense is prudent to jet their execs around like mass transit for hoity-toity commuters. This isn't a rare occurrence. All the big investor owned utilities feel entitled to live like kings at your expense. You might even come across the words "corporate jet" in the PATH Formal Challenge (page 60).
These clueless plutocrats need a few lessons in humility and a day or so spent inhabiting the real world in which the rest of us live. News flash: The economy is in the dumpster and we can't afford your sense of entitlement any longer! Your train has run off the rails. All passengers must disembark!
