Mars Ain’t The Kind Of Place To Raise Your Kids

Neiman Marcus unveiled its 2006 Christmas catalog of exotic holiday gifts Tuesday. The most exotic (and expensive) is a six-person charter to space.
The chartered trip to space, which sends six passengers 63 miles above the Earth via Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo, costs just over $1.7 million. But once those passengers return to terra firma, they get to indulge in an all-inclusive four-night stay on Virgin chairman Richard Branson’s private retreat in the British Virgin Islands. So it’s worth it. Right?

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am now head of brand strategy and creative direction at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
