AAA: Year-end holiday travel expected to break records. – Be careful out there. Roads will be packed and made worse with bad weather (aka: ice, snow, rain). Airports will have massive lines. People will have shorter tempers. Follow our guide to saving money on holiday travel.
Virgin Atlantic Is Encouraging Passengers to Steal From Business Class. – If anyone can get me a set of these salt & pepper shakers, that would be incredibly awesome!

Why seasonal overlays for attractions will become the norm. – I like it when the theme parks spice things up a bit by redecorating to incorporate seasonal/holiday elements. It makes the experience more festive and a nice departure from going on the same ride for the 100th time.
The US is revoking Global Entry, the airport fast track – from Muslims… – I understand the need for “extreme vetting” and all that jazz, but wholesale revocation from one ethnicity is completely un-American. If the government placed a membership on pause while they conducted an even more thorough (because your background is already vetted during the application process) background check, that might be understandable. But permanent revocation is a bad approach.
Are nudity and murder OK onboard an airplane? – I normally read the newspaper or books when I fly, but will occasionally watch a movie. I don’t go out of my way to watch movies with murder or nudity, but scenes like this do happen to pop up from time to time. I never give it much thought, even though my kids travel with me most of the time. My approach is that, if you don’t make a big deal about it, most kids won’t even pay attention because the movie doesn’t look like a cartoon. What are your thoughts?
