The Zany Travel Industry

I was supposed to fly home tonight on some zany airline. I've written them two new mottos: "You thought that Southwest was wacky, inexpensive, and chaotic? Try us!" or "You'd have to be crazy to start an airline under these economic conditions!" (Someone else -- from new Jersey -- has suggested the pithier: "Our business model is insane!").

Unfortunately, they cancelled the second leg of my flight and rescheduled my entire itinerary on earlier flights without telling me. And so, I am stuck in Schenectady until tomorrow.

I am amazingly calm because this is NOTHING compared to the travel snafus from last year's trip to this conference.
