When I travel to a luxury hotel or resort I’ll often have a number of requests with regards to hotel room and view. Generally my requests are met, but there’s never any guarantee. (For example, one year I didn’t get my favorite suite at Grand Hotel for the Labor Day Jazz Weekend because Michigan Senator Debbie Stabenow had taken it. I might still vote for her this year.) When you’re a celebrity such requests become demands which must be met. Rock stars typically have such demands. So does Dick Cheney, and The Smoking Gun got the list (with The New York Times confirming the report).
What does Dick Cheney demand? Among other demands, the all lights should be on in the room, the thermostat should be set at 68 degrees, and all TV’s should be set to Fox News.
Next week I’ll be at the Beach Club Resort at Walt DisneyWorld and there’s no doubt their service will meet my needs. When I return to the room after cast members (ie Disney staff) have been in for cleaning or turn-down service I can count on the television being set not on Fox News but on a Disney resort channel. I’d much rather return to see Mickey than to see Mickey Mouse News.
