At first I thought airlines charging a baggage fee signaled the coming end of civilization. But this may be a better sign:
It’s one of the luxuries of staying in a hotel — room service. But the days of delivery could be numbered for all of us.

“You want to feel like you’re taken care of,” hotel guest Rhea Newman said.
Room service is perhaps the greatest self-indulgence there is. If you can't get that, why even bother to stay in a hotel? I remember a conference I attended in Miami, during which I spent mornings sipping orange juice and munching toast and bacon while reading the newspaper on the balcony overlooking the beach. There may have been a time when I felt more deliciously decadent, but I can't remember it.
