News and notes from around the interweb:
- Vulnerable House Democrats want a vote on repealing transportation mask mandate but Democrats don’t want to put Biden in the position of vetoing the repeal. Much easier to stall and let the mandate expire April 18. (HT: Dan P.)

- I mean, I guess it’s better than the recent cringe-worthy Chicago Not In Chicago campaign. New Chicago tourism campaign welcomes travelers at O’Hare and Midway of course they’re marketing to people that already decided to come…
On Monday, Lightfoot unveiled a campaign to “welcome back” tourists and business travelers returning to O’Hare and Midway Airport in droves and encourage them to experience Chicago’s strengths: “26 public beaches and no sharks”; hundreds of public parks; iconic museums; and the “world-renowned” Chicago hot dog sold at countless stands.
The new campaign will be featured on TV monitors, screens and banners throughout O’Hare and Midway airports under a more straightforward slogan: “What We’re Made Of.”

Sorry, PQMs are no longer in existence at UA.
It would have been funnier if Richard Kimble were sitting in the one-armed seat.
Ugh, I simply adore Kylie Minogue.
Chicago Not in Chicago!!??
That just sounds wrong…..
Do you need an armrest while sitting in a seat and eating? I think I can live without an armrest while flying.
Ha 10,000 miles. Don’t spend it all in one place.
I think there’s a little value in the Chicago Airport marketing campaign for those that are connecting
