Is it a reward or one of those mafia type invitations to go for a ride in the Everglades or the Dessert?

It’s truly amazing what real cash will buy as opposed to VISA!

Thanks...I posted some comments to that thread when it came out over the weekend. I think this is a great story. It's funny how the good news gets little play in favor of the bad news isn't it?
