Traveling to our destination Thanksgiving week.
Sure, the numbers are those taking to the streets and the air seems to be picked out of the air like floating dandelions, but they do it every year. To the point nobody really pays attention, right? So and so reports that this many million will be taking to the skies this holidays season. Wow, stop the presses. I can make up numbers, too. Add the unemployment numbers in and you have quite a soup. What is the real need to run those unemployment numbers in every single week? Then go after that one prognosticator who will "see this as a turning point." That's right when the numbers are well over 400,000 this bright-eyed optimist saw it as good somehow. That somehow could be he's one big Obama fan.
Now, let get to some serious numbers on flying, thanks to USA Today/Trip Advisor. These concern the dreaded debate over reclining.
- 27 percent insist they have a right to recline
- 27 percent say all seats should be non-reclining
- 17 percent indicate it's rude to recline
- 15 percent only recline when sleeping
- 13 percent say it all depends on who is behind me
Read what you will into those as I have just done in my head. For example, I have when people recline and I do not do it myself. I may out of spite if I'm bugged by the person behind me. A right to recline sounds like a rallying cry for a movement. And now, let's discuss the air vent and the overhead light. One more thing, the seat belt light is on - - sit down, please, and stay seated.
