PAOLI, PA—Repeating their request that he take several days off from his job and fly home, local parents Mike and Debra Snyder, who have significantly more time and financial resources than their 26-year-old son Marc Snyder, inquired Monday about the next time he’d be coming back for a visit. “Why don’t you just take some time off next month and come home for three or four days?” asked Snyder’s mother and father, both of whom have accumulated several months of vacation days and earn a combined total of six times his annual salary. “You can just come and relax. We haven’t seen you in ages!” At press time, Snyder’s parents had suggested that he ask his boss, who hired him over 120 other desperate young people, if it would be okay to take a long weekend.
