Very true, Rep. I certainly have no intention of booking on Delta for quite some time.

Couldn't agree more, Ann. But if an airline is making a claim that it's building a better airline, they are going to need to do something to address the lacking customer service. Without the action to back-up the words, their brand promise simply becomes laughable.

Hmmm...that is a good question. While we will certainly be merchandising this excellent coverage, i'm not sure we can count it as a placement, since it is from sources so close to the book publicity.
I find it interesting that we all bemoan how busy we are - doing 57 things at once - but we're somehow not willing to add exercise into the mix. Why does it have to be a stand-alone activity that's unpleasant? Can't we make it part of our multitasking? How about hoofing part of the commute (not possible for everyone, i know), or a taking a meeting for a walk around the block (certainly no duller than sitting in a conference room), or maybe turning time with the kids into a dance party in the living room or game of tag outside. The fact of the matter is, being sedentary is a choice, because if being active was important, people would find the time. We do for everything else.

It's an interesting conundrum we Philadelphians face. Being from Philly is part of your identity, and you've been an Eagles fan your whole life. Is it possible to support the team, and its other players who likely had no say in the decision to bring Vick on board, without supporting the quarterback, in fact wishing for a crushing blitz with each snap? Last year, I decided my time as an Eagles fan was over. I would not - could not- support a team that would bring such a disgusting individual into its ranks. It's tough though - when a game comes on, rooting for the Eagles is just ingrained in me. But that is my own personal stance, and I cannot necessarily fault others who don't join me. After all, the NFL is populated by criminals whose behavior is tolerated because they have talent. Is torturing dogs so much worse than, oh, let's say murder, or assaulting women or soliciting sex from minors. I think not, but for some reason Vick seems to be the one who has incurred the most hatred. Is supporting Vick and giving him another chance really any worse than supporting the players behind these other heinous crimes? Personally, I'd like to see the NFL take a tougher stance on crimes from players, but until that time, Vick is just one of many who have gotten off all to easy and likely shouldn't be singled out.
