No, Really

I love when people who write articles extolling a vacation spot include a phrase like this:

Although I enjoyed a media rate during my most recent visit to the [insert name of fabulous destination here], my opinions are my own.

Oh, really?

They're lying of course. And yet, who can blame them? If somebody wanted to put me up in a 5 star hotel and pull out all the stops making sure I was super comfy at all times, I'd be happy to participate in that little song & dance. "I didn't have to pay a cent for this vacation," I'd disclose. "And yet my opinions of this place are NOT IN THE LEAST BIT INFLUENCED by that fact."

And if you believe me, there's a fabulous bridge in Brooklyn I'd like to sell you.

Yes, precisely. Although now that I read about the Panama Papers, the urge to grab all of the unearned goodies I can get is growing stronger....
