The Morning Shave

New York gets dizzying new glass elevator ride. – I’m a total sucker for these tourist-trap, thrill-seeking experiences. I love the “danger” of them and the uniqueness of the views. My buddy Brett did the one at the SkyDeck in Chicago and he raved about it! Would you ride in one of these?

Delta Will Require Employees To Get Vaccinated Before They Start Work. – Many of us already have the shot, but there are still plenty who are unwilling or unable to get the shot. I understand the safety reasons behind this, but some people are unable to get vaccinated due to health reasons that they’re dealing with. In some cases, those health issues haven’t been disclosed to their employer yet. This will be a tricky situation for Delta’s HR team.

It can determine your legroom, the availability of WiFi, and how many premium cabin seats are available for potential upgrades.
