The whole world needs a vacation.

Having just gone on vacation, I realized I didn't know that was exactly what I needed.  Sometimes I think time off at home should be relaxing but know what?  You still do stuff.  Day to day stuff.  But -- if you skip town, there is nothing to do BUT relax.  One week's time was just perfect to diffuse, decompress, relax....

And so I've come up with a plan: I think the whole world needs to go on vacation.  Every single person.  Except it wouldn't be practical for everyone to go at once, airports, hotels, and attractions would be overcrowded and that's no fun.  We'll go in waves.  States will be closed for one week increments.  Week 1: Florida is closed.  The entire state, occupants must go to another state or country on vacation.  Or maybe, while the state of Florida is on vacation, all those out of work as a result of this oil spill can go run things while they're gone.  As a matter of fact, all those out of work all around the country can travel to the closed down states and run them while that state is on vacation.  Cool job for people out of work, plus they get to see the country.  It'll be a "skeleton crew" running the state, it'll be a real paid job that people interview for. 

Can you see what this would do for the country, and the whole world?  On one hand, it creates new jobs for all those out of work, and on the other hand, everyone so stressed and burnt out on life will be invigorated.  The tourism industry will be revitalized.  People will be HAPPY.  Everywhere you look these days people are so stressed, and I am here are in order!

50 states - 52 weeks in a you see?  This could be a rotating yearly event.  It could create permanent jobs.  Who knows, if the world participates, maybe people would chill out enough for a lil..

I'm just sayin..
