Perhaps, Alan, consider that a great many people in the world do not have the money for a $1.00 bowl of rice for the day. Or money for electricity, gas or many other essentials we take for granted. There are many stark and sad contrasts. Spending $20k (I'm told it's now closer to $30,000 "with classy entertainment, food and drinks") on a junket is offensive to me actually.
