    Petroleum prices keep coming down. That’s excellent for our economy. But it begs the question. ….. Why are food prices at the supermarket not coming down as well? Can anyone provide a reasonable explanation?

    Robert, YES, exactly! I’ve had that exrineepce, too. It’s especially true about delayed luggage through Mexico City when travelers choose a bargain fare that involves several different air carriers. On my trip to Oaxaca last March, I took American to JFK, then AeroMexico from JFK to Mexico City and then on to Oaxaca. Bags were delayed 36 hours. On the return, I was routed from Mexico City to Chicago on United and then on to RDU. Bags delayed 64 hours. Sure, they delivered to my home in rural NC, but it only happens with those funky connections in the giant hubs of Chicago and JFK.

    It looks cleaner, nicer, and brighter than Prague! Is there a new Left Bank of the ’90s that I haven’t heard of … But honestly Brewsta, didn’t you miss “cesky gulas” and “smazeny kureci rizek” just a little bit while you were there?

    The Lakers fired one horrible coach for a next and if they get rid of Gasol, that’s it for the season. I don’t think you guys understand how tough it is being a Laker fan sometimes. Excuse me, I need a moment
