  1. @alex I prefer matter of fact and I think “it’s a good connecting hub for the Southeast and Midatlantic, keeps its costs very lwo to stay that way, and the local community benefits from outsized air service (albeit higher prices) as a result” is sort of positive?

  2. As I’ve said before, IMO when you take the worst of ORD and combine that with the worst of LGA you have CLT. I will do just about anything to keep from connecting through CLT.

  3. There would be less guns seized if trying to bring one on a flight buys you a lifetime subscription to the No Fly club.

  4. @Gary Steiger – What makes you think those gun owners had any intent to use their guns, rather than just forgetting they had them in their bag? I’d attribute pretty much all of the scenarios when this happened to ignorance, rather than malice.
