CDADave: Et Tu, Spokesman-Review?

“I think the S-R needs to understand that NO LOCAL RESIDENTS EVEN CARE about “hundred-thousand-dollar showers which work simultaneously on six zones of the body”. Most local residents cannot BEGIN to relate to “a two-story waterfall, running at 80 gallons per minute, (which) mimics the muted roar of a stream during snowmelt.” No one who’s scrambling to make a living around here is going to spend $45 on a manicure, or $110 for a hot stone massage, or fer cryin’ out loud, indulging in a CAVIAR FACIAL, where FISH EGGS are SPREAD ON YOUR FACE! That’ll run ya $190; more if you want a second helping of black fish eggs. ‘Oh’, you say, “but the resort caters to tourists”. Well, yeah!”
