Attention students. United Airlines will give you 10,000 miles for graduating — free — not to mention bonus miles if you fly United. The graduation bonus only requires sending in a transcript.
Free Upgrade Certificates
Free upgrade coupons. Most airlines offer small business incentive programs. The idea is that, by attaching your small business account to the traveler’s reservation, the travel earns both the normal points for the employee and special bonus points for the business. It costs nothing, and can be rewarding. You can earn free travel, upgrades, lounge memberships, etc. AmericaWest even offers an immediate 5% discount on the price of the ticket as well. However, this post isn’t meant to be a discourse on the merits of the different small business programs. I’ll save that for another day.

When you sign up for AmericaWest’s Corporate AWArds, you’ll get a welcome packet that includes a free space…

In my Winter 2002 Doublethink
In my Winter 2002 Doublethink article (pdf here, HTML here) I argued that our nation’s approach to terrorism was ultimately failed, because all of the security measures in the world will be unable to stop would-be terrorists. All of the civil liberties we give up in exchange for security will ultimately fail to make us safe. In the end, we will be both unsafe and unfree. In particular, I argued that airport security would simply move the target to the security and check-in line. Lo and behold on July 4th, a gunman attacked an El Al ticket counter in Los Angeles. In the above article, I predicted that the government’s response to an attack outside of security would simply be to move out the perimeter of security. Lo and behold, I’m sitting here watching CNN’s…
