Tim Russert died

I wasn't a big fan of Meet the De-Pressed (props to Rush Limbaugh for that one).  But it's sad to hear that he died today from a heart attack.

Airlines looking at the next logical step......

Saw this article at Bloomberg.com, airlines may start pricing you by weight.  That could cause all kinds of problems.   If company want to save on travel only send smaller employees?  What next, if you are too tall there is a surcharge on height?  

One thing is for certain, the airlines are going to have to find a better or different way to do business if they want to stay in business.  Of course, if the laws of commerce prevail, then the weak will be weeded out of the heard leaving more paying customers for who is left.  Out of those that are left, the one who raises the prices but keeps the business viable is the winner.  The down side is that there will be a lot of people who are going to loose their jobs over all of this.
