Co-Presidency? « For Jeremy Gilby »

Considering the original example, this really comes across as similar in tone to "Co-Dependency", as in, not a good thing.

McNabb Interview « For Jeremy Gilby »

...sort of.

It doesnt matter if I complete a pass, people are always asking me about the four incompletions before that, said McNabb. About how I overthrew Brian Westbrook on a four-yard route, or I how I somehow threw the ball right into the ground even though L.J. Smith was a few feet away from me. Or how I threw up all over the ball and then fumbled it. I mean what, I cant get nauseous? I have to be good and have an iron stomach, too? See what I mean? The expectations are ridiculous.

UltraCapacitors! « For Jeremy Gilby »

Even though he was indirectly insulting (but in a good way) in the previous post, I still want to make sure he knows about this patent item under development that was linked by Instapundit.

Flying "A La Carte" « For Jeremy Gilby »

Bargain-rate flying.

Q: Your business model also requires passengers to pay for any extrasdrinks, blanketspiecemeal. Will consumers go for that? A: They were paying for it before! Those were never free. Why should you be made to pay for all those sodas and blankets that other people use that you don't?

Q: You're even charging for checked luggage, $5 a bag.
A: If you don't check a bag, why should you pay for those who do? We make our prices very clear, so we've had very few complaints. If you pay $80 for a Skybus flight instead of $180 for the competitor's flight, and you pay $5 for a bag and $2 for a soda, that's $87 versus $180. America can do that much math.

I, indeed, can do the math.

And I like the idea, basically. I could pack lighter to save money. I agree that it is often transfers and the hub system are HUGE parts of what makes flying so expensive and such a hassle, and this airline will try to avoid them. Basically taking the best of Southwest Airlines' model, and going farther.

One thing that gives me pause is that I'd want to see a sufficiently-long safety track record, first. I'd hate to assume that an airline that cuts corners on service to lower costs might also cut corners on maintenance... But I'd also hate to pay for a $40 savings with my life.

We'll see how it goes. Southwest Airlines has an excellent safety record.

Quote O' The Day « For Jeremy Gilby »

This is for Jeremy for two reasons.
First, he was one (like me) who never gave up belief that we'd win in Iraq. Second, I found this via a link from Instapundit.

So here it is, subtle evidence of progress in Iraq:

There at the first corner, I see it. New glass. Someone has put new glass in a shop. Someone only installs new glass when they think it won't get broken. New glass is confidence.

Introducing a New Category Series « For Jeremy Gilby »

"For Jeremy Gilby.

He's the only one I know who doesn't ever check out Instapundit, so if I find something cool linked over there, I now consider it my duty to make sure Jeremy gets a chance to see it.

That is, assuming he stops by here every day. I know he's got me on RSS feed, so that should be sufficient.

Without further ado, here is the Very First For Jeremy Gilby Link:
