    This will turn out to be the fault of SouthWest Airlines' shoddy maintenance practices. The type of metal fatigue that is surely the problem here should have been noticed by inspections. But Southwest Airlines has problems with doing things like that, with maintenance fines of over $500,000 recently. One can't expect these guys to properly maintain things.

    I'm sure that Great Britain gives some attention to the PR of its royalty, but I preferred the more powerful image that was created by a degree of reserve prior to the death of Princess Diana.
    I'm not certain that the Monarch's step down to a Bentley was in the right direction.

    I've worked in London a lot, sometimes for months at a time. It used to be a lot more pleasant than it is now.
