Flights Of Fancy

Today's song is Help Yourself by Tom Jones, released in 1968.

According to this Chicago Tribune article, making personal connections are enhanced when airport travel connections are delayed.

I haven't personally witnessed this at airports, but I suppose human nature being what it is, it's likely. In the holiday season, those without romance might just find some with another person standing around. As long as both are willing to chance a connection, there is little harm. If the short encounter is to be any longer in duration, then the start will make an interesting conversation piece one day.

When the spark of attraction is present anything can happen, so keep an open mind and heart. The mistletoe is extra!

On Tuesday afternoon, I went to see the new movie, I Am Legend and enjoyed it very much. Will Smith is an accomplished actor and plays his part very well.

I enjoyed watching a movie that for a change, shows a person of public conviction and is also a warrior. There are too many movies who show only passive personalities with good hearts. Those inaccurate role model portrayals are a Hollywood myth. A warrior spirit, who also has a heart, unafraid to fight, is just as valid as a hero for the public good. We need more movies with that theme to bring movies more into balance with the way it really is in the world.

My friend, Robert M. Katzman, sent me a story he wrote for his latest book, Miracle on 51st Street (cover shown below). It sells for $10.00 directly from him. It would make a great gift for this holiday season.

I published a review of it today.

The Fed is making rule changes for how lenders lend money. All of the rules makes sense to me. Let's hope serious enforcement of the new enacted rules are seen.

Here's a person who likes to say Merry Christmas and says Merry Tossmas to those who don't.

Personally, I try to be sensitive to people and not offend their perspectives of this holiday season. Sometimes I say Merry Christmas and at other times I say Happy Hanukkah, or Happy Holidays or Seasons Greetings. My intent is to spread good cheer with the recipient. :-)

Google's good for starter's, but there are other ways apart from search engines to conduct legal and public research too. It all depends how creative, energetic, and patient you are.
