Oh, Southwest

Southwest

Pictured at right: the scene this morning at BWI airport, courtesy of those freewheeling Southwest employees.

The funny thing is, Southwest has actually lost money because it had bet fuel prices would stay high.

I note a failure of the free market here also. The coffee shop wanted to charge 40 cents extra for whipped cream. Shouldn't there be an entrepreneur standing outside the door with a can, offering it at 39 cents?
