The 120 mile commute would be the deal breaker for me. Unless it was a 120 mile helicopter commute :-)

How fast (landspeed) do helicopters go? I wouldn't think terribly fast, unless of course you're either Jan-Michael Vincent back in 1984, or at least hopping a ride in airwolf.

Faster than rush hour traffic.

I guess that depends on your definition of "rush hour traffic".

For instance, for me to get to my (soon to be prior) job, if I take public transportation, it takes me anywhere from :45 (on a REALLY good day) to 1:30 (on a bad day).

If I drive during rush hour, it takes anywhere from :25 to :35, but costs a little over twice as much.

If I drive on a saturday, with no competing sporting events to clog traffic, :10, and since I can park at a meter instead of in a garage, costs less than either..

Yet I live 6 miles from the office...

I maintain that unless I'm riding in airwolf, it wouldn't be less time. Think of what happens if air traffic over Chicago isn't clear, or the extra time to call for and ride the elevator down from the nearest building with a helipad...

;-)
