This statement drew a bit of flak over the weekend:
Frequent-flier miles are a tool of inequality. People who fly a lot for work (so overwhelmingly have high-status, well-paid jobs) then get free vacation travel for their families. It's ridiculous when you think about it.

“Oooh, look at the swells with actual covers on their wagons!”
But Hurley evidently wasn’t up to defending her position.
True equality exists in one place: the graveyard. And even then, some people will complain about other people’s bigger headstones — though the actual residents won’t be among them.
