  1. Dear Mr. Gary –
    I love your site, have been enjoying your articles for years now and have used your links as well.
    A couple of honest suggestions/remarks – the new website loads so much slower on mobile phones, compared to other BA websites, any chances for improvement – makes it very trying to wait unless one has LTE.
    On a less important note “thought leader” line, while true, sounds very arrogant. Consider changing.
    Thank you for everything you do to make travel easier and more accessible.

  2. @Darkolino – yours is the first comment I’ve gotten about slow load in mobile. I’ll look into it, haven’t noticed it myself.

    As for the tagline, it was something thrown out in a conversation as a placeholder and then I sort of ignored it. Anyone who brags about their humility isn’t actually humble, but I think folks that know me more than a little tend to find anything other than hubris.

  3. Don’t you just love euphemisms? Instead of “activist investor” as the WSJ describes him, “corporate raider,” or, better yet, “corporate rapist” better fits Icahn. He embodies capitalist greed at its worst.
