    from the state of Californiacation. Gas was $4.45/gal when I left. I hate airplanes, PM me and I'll tell ya which one never to fly on. It took me thirty hours to accomplish a ten hour journey. I slept in Memphis in my shrug..:lol:

    I remember when flying on commercial airplanes was actually fun.

    They gave you free cigarettes and free drinks, and free meals, the stews were sexy and pleasant, and nobody molested you unless you wanted them to.

    Example? In 1969 I flew one way from Allentown PA (a very minor airport in those days. probably still is) to San Franciso for $89.

    Today's cheap one-way from ABE to SF is showing up at about $500.

    And I'm guessing that they're not going to give you macadamea nuts or free drinks on that flight.
