Typical Dave listener: "Depreciating huh?"

I think you are right about your assessment of leasing vs. buying. I just don't think the typical Dave listener (that is, the typical American) would understand it enough to make the right decision.

See, when the Government spends money, it creates jobs; whereas when the money is left in the hands of Taxpayers, God only knows what they do with it. Bake it into pies, probably. Anything to avoid creating jobs. - Dave Barry
